have a 2000 Silverado with a 5.3 and have a p0300. cylinders 1 & 8 are dead misfires at idle but when you get the rpms up the misfire moves and starts jumping around to all cylinders. have new plug wires and plugs have also had the injectors test and cleaned. tested wires from ecm to each injectors wire and they are good. have swap coils from cylinders. 1&8 are still dead till you get high in rpms then it moves to multiple cylinders. did a crankshaft and camshaft sensors and timing gear and chain. and i still have the dead cylinders on 1&8 till i get high in rpms then it moves to other cylinders and did a compression test on the motor have 150psi across all cylinders. pretty stumped any info or recommendations would be extremely helpful tired of throwing parts at it and nothing working.

Questions from me, I know very little about FI rails. Is there a regulator to open up to send excess fuel pressure back to the gas tank? During idle, can gas be squirted into the air intake past the MAF sensor? Can a test light or voltmeter be placed at the fuel injector to know that the injectors are working at idle Or with a finger, feel the injector that it is operating?
