Default Re: What is possibly causing this misfire??

It sounds to me like a second test would confirm or deny the vacuum leak at the gasket. It might not be the entire problem, but it certainly isn't going to help you find the other problems if they exist.

I really think you have have answered your own question in regards to the gasket.



Compression test wouldn't be a bad idea still, since your misfire seems to be fairly bad and you are burning lots of oil. Short of that swapping injectors to see if the misfire follow the cylinder or injector might be worth a shot.
