Yes, it is worth it. It is definitely cam/crank with the symptoms. I was just helping someone who had the code 27 and it ended up being the cam when I thought it was the crank because of the symptoms. Swap it out and if it doesn't do the trick you are looking at the crank sensor.

Yeah I'll give that a shot today. I replaced the crank sensor about 6 months ago so it should be good

Okay well I swapped the distributors and no change but I did a bunch of testing and long story short it ended up being a bad injector on #1. So the rough running is gone now but now I'm blowing white/blue smoke out of the exhaust. So from one problem to the next. I REALLY hope it's not bad rings

Edit: actually thinking about it, since the injector seemed to be stuck open (the spark plug I pulled was SOAKED in fuel after just a few seconds of running) so maybe that was just leaking fuel into my oil, which would make sense because when I checked the oil it seemed slightly higher than I remembered, and it smelled faintly of gas. Also the white smoke is definitely smoke not steam, and no coolant in my oil or vice versa

did you do the fuel pressure bleed down test to find it?

Nope I just pulled the spark plug and saw it was soaked in fuel. Tested the spark on it and it worked fine so I assumed it was the injector being stuck open. Switched it with a spare and it fixed the problem
