Aaagh... man. Sorry that happened .You need to run that truck on freeway (high speeds) for a good number of miles , while keeping a close eye on the tail pipe. Hopefully there wont be any puffs of white smoke or any backfiring . If you see or hear any of that then you got a problem. You better off have it checked.

Heavy foot or just normal. Is the purpose to wash out injectors by lots of heavy volume or slow but constant flow?

No.....Dont be hard on it . Just normal driving. You should keep the engine 2000-2400 rpm though.
