Angry Fuel distributor replaced and no change

I found used distributor on an engine a local tech had swapped out because the owner ran it hot. Tech said he knew the distributor was good because it was one of his regular clients. I opted to buy the entire airbox including fuel regulator, eha and MAF meter. Took it home installed it, flushed the injector ports with the fuel pump before atttaching the fuel lines. Installed it with six brand new Bosch injectors. I start the car and hold my breath. Let the car warm up and hit he throttle. Black soot from the pipe just like before. No amount of adjusting the 3mm mixture screw will stop it. Another $550 down the drain.
