Default 2006 mega cab miss fire #7 cylinder

I have a dodge ram mega cab 2006/5.7 l Hemi 4x4
I have a misfire on #7 cylinder

we have inverted coils from 7-1 and coils are not the problem
On the #7 cylinder has 2 plugs/ the far plug closet to firewall is wet
we inverted the #7 and #1 cylinder plugs and seem plugs may not be the problem.

The check engine light comes on and can be reset,but motor seems to sputter the first few minutes and then settles
It seem to kick in (check engine light ) when reset upon start up

The fuel consumption on the overhead console is between 21 and 26 liters per 100/km
generally was 16 to 19 /100km with occasional 21-23 depending on the load

we are thinking it may be the injectors
what are your thoughts

Swap the injectors and see if the problem follows the injector. If it doesn't, either perform a compression test or remove the left side valve cover and check for a broken spring.
