take the coil pack from #1 and swap it with another cylinder. Erase the code...if you get another code that follows the coil pack, then it's the coil pack that's bad

Like above said switch coil packs from cylinder 1 and another cylinder and also switch the injectors. If the code changes to the new cylinder you have it narrowed down to injector or coil pack. If it stays at cylinder 1 you have an issue inside the engine, maybe bent valve. But get this done quick it can cause damage if not taken care of.

I am not that far away. Although, I'm spending more time further up the So. Shore than before. If I can be of any help, let me know.
