why is my car hesitating?

I've checked all my spark plugs and they are all nice and dry and the igniton
wires look good too. I just don't know what to look for. How does one find out
if his fuel injectors are no good? How can you test those things?

It could be the ignition system. Mine has a high boost hesitation as you
describe below, but I thought that nothing was too wrong because I was making
full boost most of the time and i couldn't find any vacuum leaks by pulling
most hoses out. Turns out that some oil was making it's way in to the plugs
via a broken valve cover gasket, eventually number 5 plug and wire were
failing most of the time, causing a constant vibration (misfire) which felt
suspiciously like my previous high boost hesitation.
Moral of the story--check out your ignition system.
