Cylinder Contribution Help

just when i think i have the truck all lined out Cylinder Contribution test shows fault on cylinder's 2, 3, 5, & 7. Whats the most common problem to cause a cylinder to fail.

I've just replaced UVCH and pigtails on both sides, FPR (mine cracked), IDM, GP's & GPR, and put a new International CPS on today. Truck runs good although it does have a slight miss/hesition under a load and if you floor it from a low RPM. Any help would greatly be appreciates. Trucks a 96 CC SWB 4X4 Auto with 396k

Recheck all of your pigtails. Check your wiring again. You might want to pull valve covers and make sure none of your wires are touching anything causing them to rub and short out.
