EB Shaking

Heres the story... I drove my eb xr8 the other night all was well, parked it. Two days later i jumped in to go for a drive and when i started it the thing just started shaking realy bad and it gets worse as the revs rise....Its not missing i checked all the leads and spark plugs all good. the motor is running smooth but just shaking realy bad?? I don't know whats going on??

Id also say its misfiring/ not firing, it should sit there and pur even with broken mounts. Being an 8, itll be a little bit harder to pick a misfire. The ECU has an inbuilt cylinder balance test. It turns off the injectors 1 at a time and logs the drop in rpm. It should log a fault if the one cylinder doesnt drop rpm.
Another thing you can check quickly is the dizzy cap. God bless the 8's with the dizzy right on top of the motor. Neer ner ner 6 cyl owners
