Default Cyl 1 Miss fire under boost

I have a 08 sti, 30r turbo forged pistons 850 fuel inj, Top mount inner cooler, 446 whp. 70000 miles on this build. This Just happened engine runs perfect up to about 8 or 9 psi and then I get #1 cyl miss fire. It is not rpm related I can go to redline as long as I don't go over that 8 or 9 psi. Fuel pressure stays good, AFR stays good.

Any thoughts.

well, first of all, congrats on getting 70,000 miles on a 446WHP build. I, for one would like to know your recipe for success.

Simple I don't beat on it all the time. Good tune,That was at 30 psi, I run it at 23 most of the time. I keep a eye in oil pressure, temp, Afr. Stock short block CP pistons Mod oil pump. Its burning oil now. I have a new short block ready to go using Manley A B pistons.

Nice. looks like a good return on your investment. I'd be happy getting 70,000 miles out of a built engine.

Good quality gas goes in it I assume.

I'd pull the plug and coil pack and swap it over to cylinder 3 and vise versa....See if it follows it, then its either the plug or coil pack. I'd also check the gap on them...

I had a coil pack go bad on me and would miss under boost only, as well. Same with a friends sti.

I will second/third spark plug gaps, once you start cramming the air in the cylinder is when proper gaps becomes crucial.

Mine also popped like crazy when the gap was at 34...

32 fixed it, 28 made it pull noticeably harder, so then i tried 26 but their was no difference so I stuck with 28.
