7.3 injector rebuild kits

Here's the link 40-100 HP 7.3 Ford Powerstroke injector rebuild kits | eBay. Are these kits hard to do? I'm a shade tree mechanic with basic skills what do ya'll think? Has anyone else don't anything like this here that can give me some info? Because I can get a set of injectors for $200 and this kits like $575, so I can have 100hp injectors for less than $800.

i would be leary of the DIY kit...... there is a reason that rosewood, DPP, and other injector companys stoped selling these kits. there may be more worng with the injector that needs attention that this kit doesnt offer...

look up Rosewood Diesel and check out there budget build and send them $200 injectors to him and have them built. not much more then you lookin at now with this kit and your gettin a qulity build

Although if i were in the boat of getting injectors built i'd just get their "premium" re-build and step up in nozzle size, so almost everything gets replaced. Sure you can get by with the budget stuff, but i like the feeling of having new parts instead of old stuff that checked out fine. Although saying that i did have a set of used injectors gone through and new nozzles put on.

Now as to the DIY, i wouldn't do it. To many what if's and variables for me. I'd rather let a shop do it so they can check everything out, and so it comes with a warranty, along with the fact that they will be flowchecked. If you DIY, you need to spend another $250 to get em flowchecked to make sure they even work properly. If you screw something up its on you to pay for it and fix it. If you have an injector built and something is screwed up your warranty covers it.
