found my crank no start problem finally please read

ok well i have been replacing everything in my high oil pressure system and finally found the problem. on the new injector that i replaced there is something internally wrong i have air coming out of the 2 holes that are on either side of the hi pressure oil rail inlet. what would cause this and can i fix it. brand new injector never even ran the truck on it but at least i found the problem. please let me know guys.
here is a picture. i tried this on other injectors and they dont do it. this is really making me angry that i spent so much on other things just to find out my new part was not good. new parts include dummy plugs and stand pipes, ipr valve, and a starter because my old one crapped out from trying to start it so many times. also i pulled the top of the heads apart 8 times trying to find the problem and make sure all orings were good.
i will be contacting the manufacturer tomorrow and see what they say. if they are not helpful i will let everyone know who they are. this has had my truck down for 3 weeks now.

i have no idea what the holes are for but i know that when i apply air to the inlet i am getting air out of these holes. i am wondering if they are like check valves or something that would release excess pressure. not sure. hoping someone will chime in that has pulled these apart.

Ok guys figured it out. My new injector was put together wrong. If u take the top off of the injector and have the top piece in ur hand there is a long tiny bolt going through it. There is a piece in there that the bolt goes through. Apparently it was in 180 degrees. Long story short I put back together the right way and she started right up after about 25 seconds. Only problem now is I am getting my contribution code everytime I clear my dtcs. Lol was only popping up once or twice a month before which is y I changed the injector to begin with. I will drive it around tomorrow and see if it clears up.

Code is gone I turned it off after driving it and staryed back up and codes come back clean. Really relieved but still aggitated at the same time. U buy something expecting it to be good. Oh well they will get a phone call tomorrow for costing me an extra 500 bucks and 3 weeks down time to diagnose their faulty workmanship.
