You would need to pressure test the fuel regulator to see if it is at Spec. I don't believe the fuel pump is of concern, IMO. If the F.I. are original, it's highly suspect that they've seen better...

Looking at my service manual, the resistance between the injector terminals should be 16 Ohms at (68 degrees F). The DME controls the function of the F.I.'s, so hopefully it's just bad F.I.'s!

Each injector has two 0-rings, Upper and Lower...around $4.50 per injector: If it is the injector itself, could get slightly expensive! What kind of issues are you encountering?
