I once had a similar failure, but only at the high speed (2500rpm) test
(they test idle and high speed here in Washington).  turns out my timing was
just a tad off, causing an occasional miss at speed.  i suppose the tweaked
distributor (quicker mechanical advance) didn't help this any, but a bump
back down and all was fine.  this was on an '87 4kcsq (2.22l 115hp), so this
may not apply for you.
