Possible cracked injector

hey guys, im gettin ready to buy a 6.4. I went to the place today and looked at it. There is a bad ticking noise comin from the motor and it only ticks when the truck is warmed up. not when you first start it up. They thought it might be a bent rod, wrist pin or a cracked injector. one guy is pretty possitive that its the injector. My question is,how big of a job is it to fix this? how much money to fix? I want to know before I buy the truck. its a rebuilt title truck btw, so no warranty.

I personally wouldn't buy it. I've gone down that road before and in the long run I ended up losing money. Rebuilt titles hold almost no value once their mileage gets higher.
