Got a EL Falcon 6cyl with slight misfire at idle and low rpm. Replaced spark plugs, leads, coil, dizzy. Compression is good. Any ideas?

my car does the same thing, and the engine did it when it was in my previous car, the motor went well so im not worryed about it, does it affect the way the car drives/is it down on power?

Check the condition of the intake gasket.....they dry out and shrink and split.

I have replaced the fuel filter, smoke tested the intake manifold, no leaks. Pulled all plugs and found no.5 with no difference. Swapped 1 & 5 injectors over, didnt follow. Stuck camera down spark plug hole, valves looked ok. Sawpped ecu over, no difference
