Also, my O2 sensors seem to be shot. Going to replace all of them sometime soon...Rich fuel mixture could have caused the misfires.

Must I completely remove the air box to check if the DISA is functioning properly? Or can I move it out of the way, still connected and pull it out?

I just scanned them 30 minutes ago. Before that, probably a few months ago. I would disregard the O2, cat, and tank vent codes as they have been there before this issue. Never seen misfires before.
