Understand something, just because the dealer sells the model doesn't mean they know how to fix it.
What are the codes.

0305 Cyl 5 misfire detected - everytime

Engine is setting misfire codes. Has good spark and have swapped the injectors around. Compression is normal.
1. Connect a vacuum gauge. If the needle is erratic, check if an exhaust rocker arm has fallen out of place.
2. If so, carbon build-up on the valve is the likely cause.
You need to remove the valve cover which number 5 is and check valve train.
