    I was thinking that I am going to check them today.... they are refurbished and maybe been installed for little under a year...

    Refurbished injectors? I wouldn't use them. What's the revision number? Anything below 11 belongs in the trash. And I probably wouldn't even use 11's.

    But, there could be another issue causing the multiple misfires.

    Referb Index 12 are a scam. Referb anything is really. Unless, maybe... just maybe they are from FCP Euro.
    It's seen lots and was just a conversation on another forum.
    Ebay seller(s) has been rescreening the info on them, also BSing the calibration numbers (all the same).


    Plugs;
    What Make and Model?
    What gap?
    What boost?

    Any mods, such as JB4 or MHD? (may be able to see logs to help suggest issue)

    2007... when were the Intake Ports last Walnut Blasted?

    No offense to your dad, but the spray test is an old shade tree mechanic hack. Sometimes it gets lucky.
    The reliable test is a smoke test.

    I'm hoping the spraying an attempt at intake valve cleaning, not vacuum testing.
    That said, carb cleaner won't do jack for your intake valves - which is why the dealer recommends 'sand' blasting them, but with walnut shells.

    For good ignition, you want good Fuel Injectors, Spark Plugs (correct gap per plug), clean Intake Valves (google pics, they can get pretty carbon blocked), Ignition Coils and air is nice.

    Given you believe all the Hardware is optimal, i'd focus on Intake Valves. Get some pics.

    However, given that it's more bank 1 than bank 2, I'd also be moving hardware and retesting.

    In the end... there is 98% chance it will be one of the above.
