Ba Xr8 Dropping 1 Cylinder

Our BA XR8 is dropping one cylinder out intermitently.
The mis started after fitting high flow cats, suspected o2 sensors so replaced them and the spark plugs, checked all the wiring and the coil packs. We are trying to avoid going to the dealer because of (read signature) a couple of small things they would frown upon. If you have a similar problem let me know.

Dave.

I hope it's not the o2 sensors again, but it's possible. We just had the exhaust modified again but it now goes under the diff because it's too low.
We will have it enterd in Auto salon 9-10 july and in Austalian Auto Expo (Holden V Ford) in August if you want to see it.

since fitting high flow cats my gt developed what felt like amiss at around 1500 -1700 rpm worse when cold had it checked by dealer they said it showed no misfire on equipment possible that the o2 sensores had trouble getting necessary accurate reading given the change in air density at that particular rpms due to less back pressure
