Sounds like HPFP is going out. If the situation worsens over the next few weeks, definitely it's the HPFP. You mentioned you've replaced fuel pump, I"m assuming you replaced the actual fuel pump in the fuel tank.

Also, do check your fuel filter in the fuel tank, sometimes that gets real dirty and clogged, it's restrictive to your fuel delivery to cause misfire problems. Lastly, get your injectors checked out. Best if you bring it to local performance shop and have it reconditioned, optimized for spray pattern and what not.

I'm listing my opinion with the assumption that all the things you said to have replaced are all good with no problems.

All parts that i replace is new and the injectors are brand new i replaced them a week ago!the engine is 1.6 16v 120hp non turbo 2008 year so no high pressure fuel pump and no fuel filter.130.000km.i was thinking maybe it needs an upgrade in software or sprockets gears in cams.
