If the injector tip broke off, it went SOMEWHERE, no ifs ands or buts about it. The question that now remains is what is the extent of damage it caused. If it caused piston and cylinder head damage, that you can see with a Snap-On borescope through the injector bore (assuming you already have the injector removed), then it's not financially feasible to even consider repairing it in any manner other than replacing the long block. I will assume the vehicle in question is an '03 version of the 6.0L (or 2004 truck with a 2003 engine), since they seem to be only ones I've heard of experiencing this type of injector failure.
