Question Injectors question

So im on the edge of buying new injectors for the truck, and was brushing up on the details. The company who sells the injectors does not sell the High Pressure Fuel Tubes, I was wondering for those who have replaced the injectors if they had reused the old tubes, even though it says to never reuse the tubes after being loosened. (tubes I am refering to is the L&R Fuel Rail banks, to the injectors.)

Do not, do not, do not, DO NOT even think of reusing the old tubes, period. You will be installing a new engine within 1000 miles.

The new tubes come with the Ford o-ring pack. Just head down to the dealer and buy 8 packs; I think they run about 16 dollars per pack.

Hey Matt how hard are they to install? I know you have them in your truck, but whats been holding me back is the fact that I'm not sure if the cab has to come off....thanks!

Most definitely do not want to compromise any part of the fuel injection system as your talking about some super high pressures in the rails and related hardware. My bro has had a couple DMaxs and one blew a small hole in one of the high pressure tubes (some kind of weird iconel metal or something) and the whole engine compartment was covered in diesel. Tech said it could cut stuff about like a plasma cutter at such high pressure. Seems like I remember a number mentioned in the 21-25,000 psi range???
