ea missing at idel and engine lacks smoothness

my ea falcon, multipoint, miss's every now and again at idel and the engine runs generally rougher than all other ea's ive driven, but it does have its power, ive replaced nearly everything, distributer cap/rotor leads plugs pcv valve, injectors cleaned out, compression tested fine done the diagnostic test it passes so i recon it has something to do with the tfi moduel, is their a way to test it and can it be taken off the distributer or is it part of it?


red ea s-pack 5 speed, engine, 4 wheels + spare, steering wheel, brakes, suspension, exhaust, 20w x 4 stock standerd stereo system, diff (rear wheel one), clutch, seats (including 2 retractable front seats) all with seat belts. Performance Mods : air filter removed, fuel filter removed, some guards taken off for weight reduction.

Checked air filter and/or fuel filter not blocked?

dude just take it to the mech's and ask em to change leads, plugs and reset base idle. oh and adjust the timing to where it should be.
The timing can sometimes wander and do its own things, esp if you dont tighten dizzy cap enough.
