if the cam is going bad or is bad would my tc have a miss and would i get bad gas mileage, bc i have changed the pip, tps, egr, and had two people do compression tests and fuel pressure test and everything checked out ok and timing was 10

Did you run the codes? Was the fuel pressure checked while driving too? Does the car smoke black at all?

Yes, it could miss. Most likely poor idle and low on power. Did it start suddenly? Pull codes 1st. It should only take 1.5-2.0 hours to inspect the cam, but I'm guessing it's not the cam. It is possible to wipe a lobe and miss on 1 or 2 cylinders.

Are you getting any top end noise. Ofter there will be a ticking or louder if the lobe(s) are seriously worn.

Have you checked cam timing, then ignition timing?
A cloggged cat will affect power and mileage. It may cause the exhaust manifold to glow brighter than normal under just easy driving

Sounds like your O2 sensor is puking. If it's got lots of miles it should be changed anyway, as the paladium wears out it wont signal properly.

When you say the timing was 10 degrees .... was it checked with the spout connector installed or out. I set mine to 12 degrees with the spout connector out.
