I have a blinking CEL, new one for me, since any other time its just come on
solid. Pulled the code and got Cyl. 1 misfire, but the CEL still continues to
blink under normal operating conditions. Looks like I'll have to pull the
intakes for this one

Lucky you. You got a cel and know which coil to change. Geeeez.....wish I was so lucky. Thought blinking cel meant it's still missing?
Blinking CEL means the miss is bad enough that to preserve the catalytic converter the injector pulse has been shut off to quit pumping unspent fuel into the exhaust.
Blinking means it is misfiring at THAT second. I would suggest you don’t drive until you fix. Otherwise, melted cat (assuming injector is firing).

Yup had that last weekend on the 96 - except mine was easier - 0305. First swapped coils, fired it up and instantly started blinking again. Pulled the plug, put in new one - buy buy blinky.
