The low compression could easily cause a misfire but since you said you swaped the 2 & 4 coil packs and now both are misfiring makes me think that it could be a faulty coil along with bad rings, stuck valves, etc..
Ahh I guess I never thought of that for being a reason. Cylinder 2 is pretty much dead and also had a bum coil on it that is now on cylinder 4. Any way you slice it I'm going to need to do some serious work.

This wouldn't be as big of a deal if I already had the money for my ej207 build

Thanks for your input
