changing injector solenoid

I got my stage 1's in the mail and 1 of them had a busted elctrical connector. I put them all in and kinda just plugged the injector in. truck started up, and ran then after about 20 minutes, it went into a dead miss. very rhythmic, so I figure that connector let go (hole 6)

I got a new solenoid in the mail tonight. can I just take the 4 torx screws out of the top and change the sloenoid without taking the entire injector body out?

also, is it typical for the truck to run with a little random misses after the injector install, like first 20 minutes

Yes, you can swap the soleniod without injector removal. I've gone as far as removing an injector poppet to extracate a broken armature screw with the injector on the engine. Place rags around the injector so if you drop something, it won't fall somewhere bad. You will have some missing until the air is out of the oil and fuel rails.
