Spider 2.4 jtdm misfire etc

Grateful for any help, 2007 Spider 2.4 jtdm has a really lumpy start up, sometimes stalling and a misfire at low throttle openings which is usually present but occasionally clears and the car becomes smooth and powerful. So far she has a brand new Bosch maf and a cheaper map sensor. I have blanked off the egr with a partial restrictor and cleaned the throttle valve and egr ports. I have put industrial quantities of injector cleaner tbrough 5 tanks of BP Ultimate. I have no fault codes showing but as she settles on the idle and the misfire comes in, the correction codes on cyls 4 and 5 go to about 2.8 and 3.4 respectively, all the others remain within 2. Is it time to have the injectors pulled or is this a red herring?

Leaking swirl flaps will cause the lumpy startup. If your're brave then a temporary seal could be made around them to then check the lumpy idle and injector correction values. It would be better to do the SF's properly though.
