So after trying to re-seal the injectors into the TGVs, the car still idled badly. Ran the smoke test again and sure enough those injectors weren't sitting correctly in the housings.
Decided to pull the intake manifold.



So on the driver's side, you can see the injector sits perfectly in the hole:


Unfortunately, I think I bent my passenger's side fuel rail, and it was almost impossible to get the injector to sit correctly:


So as others have pointed out on this forum, don't bend your fuel rails!

New passenger side fuel rail on the way (Part number 17533AA493 in case anyone needs it.)

Also planning on re-painting the intake manifold while it's out, and doing the injector o-rings.
