    cylinder 1 and 3 misfire?

    hey i have a 2005 wrx,mods are invidia turboback,and aem cold air intake,and a opensource map... so about a week ago my friend accidentally pumped 87 octane gas into my car,i drove for like 15 minutes and my car ran fine but all of a sudden it started running horrible...i took it home and pulled the plug at the bottom of the tank and drained the gas out and filled it with premium and some good octane started throwing the cylinder 1 and 3 misfire codes after the bad gas was punped into it but i figured after the gas was gone i could clear the code and it would be is still running absolutely terrible,it misfires at idle mild throttle and wot..ive checked the coilpacks and changed the plugs and it did very wondering if the gas could have clogged an injector or something...but im not smelled really strongly of gas before i changed the car is running so bad its litterally undrivable...oh and i did a compression test on all 4 cylinders and everything seems ok so i dont think its a valve issue....any help would be very much appreciated because im not gonna lie im not the most car savy person in the world....thanks

    Well, since you already check the coil packs and the spark plugs i would think the next logical thing would be to check the injectors being compression is good in all 4 cylinders.
