CEL diagnosis...

Hey I have the following codes in my 1997 Boxster. 100k on the clock

P0300 Misfire Damaging to Catalytic Converter
P0301 Misfire, Cylinder 1, Damaging to Catalytic Converter
P0302 Misfire, Cylinder 2, Damaging to Catalytic Converter
P0303 Misfire, Cylinder 3, Damaging to Catalytic Converter
P1313 Misfire, Cylinder 1, Emission Relevant
P1314 Misfire, Cylinder 2, Emission Relevant
P1315 Misfire, Cylinder 3, Emission Relevant
P1319 Misfire, Emission Relevant
P0341 Camshaft Position Sensor 1 - Signal Implausible, Short to Ground, Short to B+

I think the problem is the camshaft adjustment solenoid, #1 bank.
I have ohm'ed the coil and it is 16ohm's....ok
I have ohm'ed the wires from the ecm to the sensor and they are ok.
I have swapped the camshaft position sensors from left bank to right bank...
I guess the solenoid could still be stuck even though the coil tests ok. Car has a rough idle around 1300-1500rpm. Cel light on.
I want to be sure before I tear into the camshaft solenoid.Thanks
