HELP! running on like 3 cylinder

After installing the new 5.0 injectors the car sounds like a dirtbike... all the plugs are right on the injectors the car idles fine but when u get on it theres a lack of power and it sounds like a dirtbike (da da da da da adadadaddad) get it? Any ideas... I checked the injector plugs they're all in place... the only thing i can think of is that then injectors maybe some of them dont work? Ive run into just about every problem putting in the 3.0 afm and these injectors... Also the A/F ratio gauge is just completely lit up under WOT... its running from lean to rich lol any ideas... I figured anything had to be better then the old injectors after pulling them out and not seeing any pintel nozzles except for on one injector... they were caked in grime...

I hope I don't have this problem with my car....I just changed my injectors to M3 ones this morning, but I haven't started up the car yet (i'm waiting for all the spilt fuel to evaporate first).

maybe the injectors are dirty? your ecu isnt sending the fuel? idle control valve?

figured it out... while taking out the fuel rail I had to remove the valve cover... in the process i must have just disrupted the spark plug wire loom enough to knock 2 wires just loose to not spark... also the number 3 injector wasnt clipped all the way oops... lol so no fuel in 3 and no fire on 1 and 2... hence why the A/F gauge was reading all the way from lean to rich... hehe pretty colors... well thanks guys...
