6.0L rebuild: injector choice question

This is my first diesel rig, and it's a 2003 F350 CCLB Dually 4x4. The motor in it supposedly needs injectors, but I'm going to buy a core motor and rebuild it just in case the one in the truck is shot. Here are the things I'm looking to do:

1. EGR delete
2. rebuilt oil cooler
3. Victor Reinz head gaskets
4. 4c3z-6r007-a rebuild kit
5. ARP head studs
6. rebuild HPOP (possibly Adrenaline?)
7. 6.4 banjo bolts
8. blue fuel pressure spring
9. bully dog 4" exhaust kit
10. SCT Tuner (not sure which one yet, but will include gauges)
11. Rebuilt Injectors

Now here is the main question I have: should I go with BD Injectors (stock), as I can get them at a discount through my company; or should I look to a different brand of upgraded injectors (I've seen the term stage 1 thrown around a lot).

For right now, the turbo will be the stock unit. I will use the truck for some daily driving, hauling some motors back and forth, and playing. I will not be doing any type of racing, pulling, etc. I may tow from time to time (would be a car on a flat trailer), but that is about it. Since I'm building the motor, I'd like to do it once and do it right. What injectors would you recommend, and why? Also, any other upgrades to the motor that I may have missed?

The transmission / etc. will be worked on / upgraded down the line, including the converter, so I'll save that stuff for another thread.

For your stated goal put stock injectors back in it.

how much power will the stock BD injectors support?

I'm not replacing the one that is in the truck yet. It has around 215k miles, and I haven't had the chance to turn it over yet (both batteries were dead), and seller said he 'thinks' it needs injectors; claimed that it started running sluggish, then as he tried to back it into his driveway, said it lost almost all power, at which point he shut it down and started driving his other truck.

I'm installing new batteries this weekend and have an OBDII code reader and will see what it says and will try turning it over. But, since I have access to core motors, I figure that I'll go ahead and build a replacement motor so that one day I can swap them. That is assuming the motor that is currently in the truck runs for a while, then I can swap when it starts going south. But, if the motor in the truck now is junk, then at least I'll have another motor ready to go.

Try turning it over by hand first. You don't want to bend anything if it is hydrolocked.

This might be as simple as the IC boot ripped or HPOP system issue.
