I take it you also replaced the HT leads too, my money is on them being the culprit if you haven't.

If it's been misfiring for a while with a bad coil-pack it can damage the PCM module so I'd be careful driving it.

Maybe try a compression test, worth seeing what it's like considering it's isolated to cylinder 2. Could swap the wires around and see if the fault moves to another cylinder.

Don't try and drive an obviously Ill motor.  As Luke rightly points out, you can cause damage.  The often miscalled "limp home" mode is actually called "safe mode", and is designed to get you off the carriageway to a safe spot, not to plough on with.

I also agree with Luke about leads.  I'd have changed them before the coil pack.
