1990 525i running on 3 cyl

My 1990 525i is only running on cyl. 1,3,5. There is spark at all plugs. Noticed excessive fuel in cyl 2,4,6 when doing compression check (cyl 1,3,5@120 ; cyl2,4,6, @ 150) anyone any ideas?

I found the problem to be with the fuel injector wiring harness. The 7 pin plug under the intake manifold that connects the fuel injectors and temp. sensors. 3 of the pins that connect the fuel injectors had become corroded.
