Bad Missfire

So i have a nasty miss between 2k and 3k rpm. It runs fine after that. When i put my foot on the gas it will just spit and sputter, sometimes dieing and sometimes it will rev up with a little feathering. So i checked plugs, wires, cap and rotor first to eliminate that. I then unplugged Throttle Positioning sensor to see if it made any change, it didn't do anything. MAS looks good. its not throwing any codes. Could timing cause it to be that bad? what else should i check?
