How do you know the injectors work exactly like they should?

based on research one is injector is primary always spraying fuel for idle then the other sprays extra fuel when revving to keep the engine running so they both are working fine just wondering if my ecu could possibly be going out

It's not impossible. But more unlikely than a faulty injector.
