Default 1990 95' Swap misifre issues

OK so ii just finished my 1.8 rebuild and swap into my 90'. i used all of the 95 1.8 harnesses. When i first started it ran bad but i went through and fixxed all the Vcaccum leaks and now after adjusting the idle runs good but it is missing on cyl 2. i pulled the injector plug and it doesnt change anything, ive used a noide light to make sure im getting injector signal and i am, i then swapped cyl 1 and 2 injectors and drove it around and it sputtered until 2.5-3k rpm and then it felt like it opened up and ran fine. Got it in the garage and pulled cyl 2 and it was firing, pulled cyl 1 and it was not firing, so i was done for the night since i had an idea what it was. Next day i fired it up and again cyl 2 was not firing and cyl 1 was firing... so ive swapped out the entire set of injectors and still getting the same results. I broke out the stethoscope to listen to the injectors and cyl 2 is not firing if it is, its not firing strong i can hear a very very slight tick but when i plug up a spare injector it ticks loud.. im lost and dont know what else to do. ive done a compression test with a shitty tester and cyl 2 was a little lower than than the rest and it did bump up with a wet test. Ive only put about 8miles on the rebuild. Anyone have any ideas?
