If it stutters and the CEL is flashing, not only is there a misfire, but I'm betting a plug wire (or more) is/are making contact with an exhaust manifold. When that happens, the insulation melts, causing the outer mesh sheath to make contact and thus grounds the corresponding plug & coil.
Pop the hood and check all plug wires first. Been there, done that.
Rolling coal is like spending a considerable amount of money to reconfigure your plumbing system so that when you shat in the toilet, it gets sprayed all over your furniture because someone suggested you should use a better-performing furniture polish.
