You're definitely working your way through the ignition control system this way, but if it's not the coil, leads, plugs or compression then there's just three things left: cam position sensor, ECU and wiring. Alternatively you may be misdiagnosing a fuel fault as ignition misfriring, replace the fuel filter and check the fuel pressure.

new fuel pump and filter was fitted so I think it is the cam sensor but I cant replace till I get paid
