Default Miss when cruising.

So my car developed what feesl like a misfire under part throttle, It drives perfectly normal when in boost and it accelerates normal. I only feel it when I try to hold a steady speed. I'm going to go out today and check the plugs, I know the coil packs are working because I disconnected each one while the car was running and I could hear a difference in idle. One thing I noticed yesterday is that my AEM WB seems to have taken a ****. I'm hoping it's just the sensor. If my wide band isn't working properly could it cause problems for MS thus making the car run funky?

I'm running a Brain build MS

So I just pulled the plugs and #1 & 2 were covered in oil. Then realized that ALL of the valve cover bolts were loose. So I cleaned all of the plugs, sprayed cleaner inside the cylinders, checked the plug gaps, tightened the valve cover bolts and it's seems to be fixed. It now idles smoothly and is smooth when I hold the revs up. I'll know for sure when I drive it later.
