That's a shot of an AP2. There's nothing different in that you can't already get.

My '00 AP1 needs engine work for a random misfire. Becoming REALLY common, and the code is so damn generic it's stumping a LOT of people. I haven't driven it in a year... mostly because it's (probably) going to be thousands to repair, head work, etc... on a head that has 189k miles.
I've traced down lots of things, but it stems from low compression in Cyl2. No leakdown test yet to determine where, because I don't have the tools to do so. I want to bring it to a decent, reputable shop and say "make it pass OBD insepection".
