My firebird has a miss, but only in the lower rpm's.
Replaced plugs and wires still has the miss. That's why

Thinks for any help you can give me.

    Opti-spark is the type of distributor the ignition system has. They have a lot of problems with the distributor itself. I recommend you take it to a repair shop for proper diagnosis unless you want to continue and throw parts at it.
