Injectors?

I have a 96 PSD with 182,000 miles and just a intake and exhaust the rest is stock in need for injectors...I think
The truck started smoking alot on start up but has new glow plugs and the relay is fine. even when its 80 degrees out the truck smokes alot on start up white then as it went away it had a slight blue tint then stopped. then i started to notice is getting a rough idle and slowly it just dont want to go anymore. the truck fires right up but it smokes alot and has a rough idle. when i hit the throttle it knocks like its not firing on all cylinders as soon as i let off it stop.
Is this bad injectors?
If so wheres a good place to get a set of stage ones for a good price?

O yea and i had a buzz test done and they passed

sounds like an injector tip is cracked. i would pull all injectors and check the tips the crack will be very hard to see. while you have them out rebuild them. the kits arent to high and then they will be good as new.

where do you get your fuel from? makes sure its really fresh. also, do you run any additives, like powerservice?

Jim up at Rosewood injectors can rebuild them and he pulls them all apart and tells you how the insides look, and what parts you need. i was worried my plungers and barrels were bad when i sent in for my stg 1 upgrade, but luckily, they were fine, so it was about $550 total to upgrade to stg 1s. def worth it.

Will the engine rev up or just hammer/knock when you give it fuel, could be a tip. Also have you checked the Valve cover wiring harness'? If you have a few burnt wires or a bank not firing the other injectors will hammer/knock a bit. If you have enough time, remove the valve covers and check the wiring to the injectors.

If you going to get injectors anyway Might as well get baby swamps & the chip to go with them. I love the way mine runs and pulls the trailer.
daves tow tune kicks butt.

A few months ago i replaced the glow plugs, valve cover gaskets and the wiring. when i give it fuel it just hammers and knocks. before it got this bad it just smoked alot but would go away when it warmed up.
i dont have a pyrometer because it is all stock but do you think running it that way would have some high egts and hurt anything. because when they started going bad i had no choice but to drive it till i could afford new sticks.
