Parts debate and injector oring question.

Guys I am new here and getting ready to tackle glow plugs, uvc wiring, and valve cover gaskets on my truck. It is a 96 7.3. I am also considering doing injector o rings as i have a slight engine miss at idle and my last fuel filter change was black. I am debating on using aftermarket parts kit from accuratediesel or motorcraft from powerstroke shop. Aftermarket would save about 80 bucks and the glow plugs are a dual coil from WAP and the gaskets and wires are from Doreman Products. I am leaning toward the motorcraft replacements but was wondering you input. Also is the very Black fuel filter a very good indication of the oring leak?

Thanks I had never had my filter turn black like that before. I am not too worried about the dorman gaskets. The WAP glow plugs was my main concern.

Now would be good time to upgrade. Rosewood Stage 1s? If you're tearing into it why not upgrade?

New injectors are expensive. My truck has plenty of power for my needs. I have no real interest in making it more powerful. My transmission is stock auto with 170K on it. I believe adding more power will just make it fail sooner and money is very tight right now. How much would those injectors cost?

Think $450 for DYI and $850 for Jim to do them.

his web site shows 500 to overhaul mine if no nozzle replacement is needed. If I did this and upped to stage one for the same price would I have to retune the truck or would it still run correctly? I really think stock for me is enough power for what I pull so not sure. How long should the factory injectors last If I just keep rockin with new orings to stop the oil passage. My truck runs good now (when it will start) so I believe the injectors are all still good.

Should run fine. You won't get the full potential
out of the with out a tuner or 6 position chip.

Injectors could outlast the lower end. You just never know.
