few questions...

I have a 06 w/22k on it. Has a mopar cai, and bgchrysler tune.

The cel comes on, checked codes and came back as a cylinder 1 misfire. What to do? Erased the code 2 times. Comes back on when starting after cold.

Next question, is there any guide on swapping cams? Can anyone chime in about needing a cam bearing tool?

Also diablosport gave a error when trying to modify the tune. Says that I needed to update. But is up to date.

Next is, what side to run a wide band in? I don't know it matters or not

Specific cylinder misfire codes are bad news. I would pull the plugs and see if they are crushed. O2 sensor is best on the driver's side.

Agree with them. See if Diablo can force a stock flash and then use the Diablo, the bg tunes leave something to get desired. No need for a cam bearing tool to swap cams. There isn't a guide here, but there is one in the knowledge base on lxforums. Your username need to find out what's going on with cylinder 1 fast.

Broken ringland, usually. Going to have to get it scoped and/or compression checked.

hrmm. So how worried should I be? I have about 450 miles on it since I bought it. it appears to have new plugs in it. I straightened out the plug and reset to gap and now has a tick and the idle is stuck higher at about 1100.
I do have a 3 month/3000 mile power train warranty from the dealer that I bought it from and Also purchased a extended bumper to bumper warranty from them that is a "MasterTech" brand. I am going to call them first thing in the morning. If anyone has any advice or suggestions, on how to work this so they do not try to give me a line of BS

Did you buy it with the tune or did you do it? If you did it reset to stock before going in. If I were you, since you say you have a warranty, I would of left the plug the way it was & had it taken to the dealer in the morning. Something had to hit the plug to close it. Most likely its a broken ring land as mentioned. The top ring land on the stock piston is thin & known to break but mostly with boosted applications. A piece breaks off & gets smashed between the piston & plug closing the plug. Unfortunately you are probably going to need a new motor or have to have it rebuilt. Sometimes the dealer may just try & replace that one piston though.
