Back to basics... check for fuel and spark on the non-firing side. This will narrow it down.

already switched em and checked fuel pressure switched fuel injector and still no change

started it lastnight after repair and it run fine the next day on the way to take it back to the customer passenger side cylinders quit firing again

when running right heat doesn't work when misfiring heat works fine
