Also another thought i had, if my Injector(s) are fouling out at Operating temp could that cause it? After it warms up i noticed today it has a slight miss. But only does it in closed loop at normal operating temp.
with a hot misfire.. i would examine the ignition coil for signs of high voltage leaks.. white marks around the outside of the windings. there is a chance your injectors could be shorting internally..

Alright I'll have to check that. When it starts running poorly it almost sounds like a small exhaust leak. I don't have an exhaust leak is the issue. I'll check and let you know.
