i just got the shaft i paid 2000 for someone to rebild my stock injectors
Yeah, pretty much. My Premium Stage-1's come with every new part I can buy for them and they sell for $1285 and come with a 6 month warranty.
ya i had a injector tip snap off a couple months ago and ended up buying a reman injector from pensacola diesel for $99. so i guess for $800 you could have 8 "new" reliable injectors, ive had no problems yet and they come with 12 month warranty
I have no disrespect for Pensacola Diesel, and I don't know if they are hands-on in their injector rebuilds, but hands down ALL reman injectors are JUNK, unless bought directly from one of us 7.3 specialty injector rebuilders. 9 out of 10 remans have all Brand New Parts, but they do NOTHING to account for Poppet valve wear. They might be fine now, but most of the time when I get injectors in to rebuild, it's the remans that are so far out of spec they won't work. They just take a 300,000 mile injector and add new parts. That's NOT what you want...
Having said that:

You can easily rebuild them yourself IF
your injector's Poppet valve tolerances are within spec. If not, all the new parts you throw in there won't make them run any better. Only special machining can correct this, and it can be tedious depending on how worn they are. You can take a series of measurement that I have listed on my site in the Tech page that will help you determine the Poppet wear.

No you don't!! They have enough problems working on these things. Their solution is to sell you a reman injector that isn't worth crap (see above.) Not even Alliant Power, the oem supplier of the inejctors sells parts to do that.
However, I know a place that will supply you with whatever parts you need to rebuild yours.
