Hard to diagnose whithout seen it, but; have you checked ignition timing.
cam shafts timing- looked at boost gage-if the boost indicator does not
move, check if the booster turbine are not jammed. Also would be good idea to check throttle position sensor output and catalitic converter for free flow.

SOURCE: how much is it to change a fuel injector

Oh this is fun...

I have a 1993 300ZX N/A and have had two injectors go out on me at different times. This is an expensive fix for two reasons; 1) the injector. 2) the installation process.

If you're lucky you can find a shop or eBay seller with new or reconditioned injectors at an affordable price. $150~$275/injector is steep. Worse is the cost of removal and installation since the upper plenum and fuel rails must be removed. This is a design flaw by Nissan since you can see both screws to remove the injectors, but one is partially covered by the aliminum upper plenum (big silver colored aluminum air intake over the block). There are some sites that will talk about drilling or filing the plenum to allow access to the second screw, but this is highly frowned upon and you run the risk of putting a hole in the plenum. Best to leave this as-is.

It's cost effective to replace these yourself if you're handy with a wrench and a screwdriver. the cost for a shop to do this job is between $600 and $1000 for one injector. Most of the cost is the labor to remove and replace the plenum and fuel rails.

If you want to do this yourself, start with using a voltmeter and check each injector to find the bad one. Set the voltmeter to Ohms, disconnect the electrical from the injectors, and check the resistance between the contacts of each injector. They should read between 10 and 18 Ohms. Here's how:

Here's a step by step process for replacement:

Like I said, I paid for this twice and never again. Too much money for such a small part that I can do myself in my spare time.

Hope this helps!

It could be a couple of things. I first guess is to check the fuel filter. If it has not been changed out within 15-25,000 miles deposits that within the gas tank has restricted the flow and will cause a hesitation or very rough idle. Now the desposit could have surface close to the injectors restricting the flow. Second, tune-up ( distributor cap and button, spark plugs, wires, etc). Third, check all you fuel hoses leading (especially leading from the fuel filter) to and from the engine.If they have never been changed, I would do so. Hope this a start of resolving your problem.
