That is unfortunately common.  I have many injectors with the same problem.  I have only two pairs that work.

Ok I got my injectors back that where supposedly bad.I soaked them in transmission fluid and cleaned with carb cleaner,gas,wd40, and repeated several times.Put them in again with new seals and they work perfectly so far and do not leak.So I don't about the guy just not wanting to spend time on them or not.But for now it's working after a ten mile run and boosting.
