2012 etec 50 hp jet, lost power and the dealer cant fix it after 11 months of trying. Please help me

In 2015 I bought a new to be etec 50 hp with 171 hours. in the begining of 2016 it lost power, and would only go to about 4000 rpms, and I took it ot the only dealer withing 500 miles of me, and they had it for 11.5 months, charged me $1,700 and sent me out the door, I water tested it, and sure enough it wont go past 4k rpms... 

 

Drive it 600 miles away to anothe rdealer, they relaced both injectors at $1200 total, and it still wont go past 4,000 rpms. 

 

Im getting desperate, and I dont know what to do. I called BRP affter care support and they told me I can only address my concerns with the dealer, and then hung up on me. Im getting desperate, and my next step is to just throw this engine away?

 

its only running on one cyl, the bottom cyl is constantly fouling its plug, and the plugs are wet, it has spark though. What could be wrong? 

 

Please please please help me, Im out almost 6k with this motor, and not a single dealer cares enough to get it back in under a year

Is there any way to get your motor to Fairbanks? It would be worth the trip if you could.

Thats what im thinking I should do..  its a 800 miles drive round trip from my house but if it would fix it.. i dont know if you are working for BRP or not, but you guys seriously need to send someone undercover to alaska minig and diving. Ive heard from a lot of people they have a repatation of charging for work, and then never actually completeling it. I dont know how they have managed to stay in business this long. they had 3.0 stars om google reviews, until last month, and now they have a bunch of positive reviews from accounts that are brand new, probably the owner making them.
