[DML] Bad idle continued

I really appreciate all of the input so far, I think that I am close 
to resolving my cars problems.

So far I have determined that there were two issues with my car, 
both on the fire and fuel side. The injector spray patterns were 
crap at idle and moving the injectors to different hoses produced 
the same result per injector (bad spray patterns followed the 
injectors). I sent the injectors, which were barely 9 months old and 
less than 400 miles, back to the vendor I purchased them from to see 
if they are defective or simply need a cleaning. 

I discovered the other problem when I removed the distributor cap. I 
found that the carbon "button" in the center of the cap was totally 
burned away. This part was also less than 1 year old, in fact so are 
my plugs, wires, and rotor. I have replaced the plugs, wires, and 
cap. I was told by some very knowledgeable people that the burned 
out contact on the cap indicated that my coil is bad. Since I know 
for a fact that my coil is as old as the car I bought a new Bosch 
blue coil. 

Once I get my injectors back I will install and test them in my 
system, if they spray fine my fuel issue should be gone. Hopefully 
when I button it all back together my engine will run and sound 
great. Have I missed anything? Could there be another explaination 
for the burned out contact? I don't want to go through this again.
