    Best to take it to another dealers, and ask them to check the Ecu with their TechII(does it have the correct Firmware for the engine model and year of engine). That way you get a second opinion also...

    Shouldn't the engine take a good few thousand miles to properly bed in?

    take it back and ask if they have programed the new injectors to the ecu or if they have fitted the original ones have they programed them to the ecu .....this can give low down power loss some times ....
