Default Wavy Dyno Graph?

Got a re-tune the other day since i put in a stall and 243's, Tuner told me I had a slight misfire under load that was probably ignition related and the Graph had a wavy hp curve

Plugs are NGK's and were changed with the wires about 20K ago

My coil pack wire has a small nick in it, so I'll start by fixing that and changing the fuel filter


Anybody had a graph look like this before?

Looks like a problem with the pickup wire for the dyno. Not a car problem.

Smoothing of 1 probably has something to do with it

Is it? On my phone it looks like a 1. Hard to see as the mobile sight squashes pictures.

Yes, and the funny thing is, i cant tell any misfires when im driving. It shakes a little at idle, I believe thats just the cam and the poly mounts.
