Misfiring problem comes back like boomerang. I have put NGK BCPR7ES (3330) and still have misfiring!

I used to drive using NGK BKR6EP-11. After making my car BPU I have noticed misfiring (not only at high boost of 20 psi but also at 0 boost at high rpm). After some discussion on the forum, I have decided to check coils connections and to change spark plugs to 3330. I have done it yesterday and made some tests. Car is powerful but sometimes especially at high rpm (5000-6000) it is misfiring. Strange think I have noticed is that: on full boost it is accelerating pretty well, but while driving after that at high rpm about 5000-6000 with no boost it is misfiring.

Coils looks OK, but never been changed – you can not see any signs of high Voltage on them (misfiring) rubber parts looks fresh, connections are perfect. I am stupid – I do not know what to do. I do not want to spend fortune on new 6 coils because I would prefer to spend it for new modifications.

Please help
:(

I HAVE NOT TOUCH GAP. It is set as NGK has set it. But that is strange to me because it has nothing to come with BPU. I have misfiring at low boost, at 20 psi I do not have misfiring!

coil "looks" good? you should check it according to repair manual for its resistance. I'm gonna tell you what I tell everyone else cuz I went thru all the plugs, testing, misfiring, detonating hesitating period. from my experiecne, you will find a new set of coil packs the solution to your problem. It works for all the BPU supras that I know of. it should work on you. those copper plug is a quick fix to problem, not ideal.

Thank you for all ideas. Yesterday I have found out what caused my misfiring problem. I have noticed that my A/F gauge is showing very rich while driving high rpm without boost. I started thinking that engine has too much of gasoline and that causes misfiring. I could not figure out what is the real reason. I was thinking and thinking and suddenly I screamed EURECA !!!! I’ve got it. BOV. I started to drive with open windows (-10 Celsius degrees) and I could hear psssssss almost all the time. I tightened BOV spring to max and now everything is OK. I am genius...:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Thanx once again, I will come back to Supra stock gap and put platinium spark plugs. Hope my coils are good if not than I will listen to Zerosoul. Zerosoul - now on new coils do you drive 1.1 mm gap like in stock Supras?

glad you found the problem. good job!
yeh, after putting new set of coil packs in, I've switched to Denso Iradium plugs, 1 degree colder, but stock gap. been running like this for over 10,000miles with 91octan without missing. I'm never going back to those NGK copper plugs, they make car idle rough and drives rough too IMO.

What I am trying to say is that I do not understand how it was causing you to misfire? Also if your BOV is at its tightest, meaning (I think, excuse my ignorance) it takes alot more pressure to release it right? Can this hurt you in the long run, say if I tightened my HKS SS BOV all the way up, will it not release the air correctly? I have the HKS SS BOV and I don't have the stock BOV with it.
