Its wet.
I think you may be right. I started it this morning, and it idled fine, so I took it on the highway to see how it acted, and I'm still getting intermittent misfires, but it seems to be getting better as it's happening less often. I'm gonna hold off on the new boots and plugs for the time being.

One question. Will I need to get the CEL reset, or will it go away once everything is completely dry? Thanks again!
