What do you mean by "the misfire has no pattern"

Do you mean the cylinder that misfires isn't always 6?
In the past several months this has been happening, I've only gotten it to throw one code...and that was cyl6.

Back when I had the tune in my car (in the link I posted), the misfire just had no pattern.
For example...
I'd swap the coils. The misfire would follow. Then I'd swap that coil with another, and the whole problem would go away. A couple drives later, a misfire would happen at a completely random cylinder.
So, instead of swapping this time, I'd just buy a new coil. Replaced it, and the misfire stayed with that cylinder. Swapped the new coil with another cylinder's coil, and the problem would go away.
A couple drives later, it would come back and be another random cylinder.
