New or reman injectors?

Wanna get your guys opinion on the two.....ill be replacing 1 bad injector and was wondering if i should get a ramanufactured one or just buy a new one.....found descent prices i suppose on both......109 reman, and 234 for brand new......would you say the remans are just as reliable or should i fork up the extra cash for a new one? Im definetely not rollin in the dough as far as my back account goes so money is somewhat of an issue, but i dont wanna buy something that may need replacing short term.

I sell new sets for $1700 shipped to you.
I do stock overhaul for $500 with a 60 day warranty, or $650 for a 6 month warranty. I call them overhaul because that price uses all good used parts. You cannot replace all the parts in the injector, but there is machining that we do to help accomodate some wear so that the injector functions correctly.

Keep in mind you get what you pay for. If the original set lasted 200k miles, and you want another 200k miles, then invest in new.

But, a good overhauled set, along with proper maintenance on your end should last well over 100k miles.

An OBS or 2, or 3...

You also have a different price for us to send you our injectors and have you rebuild them into stage 1's, correct?
What is the best maintenance we can do for rebuilt injectors?

Thanks.

Nope, those prices are for stock or Stage-1 builds with you sending yours in.

Maintenance: Change your fuel filter regularly. Don't run fuel that you may suspect is bad, drain it ASAP. Drain your water routinely. And change your oil frequently. If you run Delo or Rotella, etc change it 2500 - 3000 miles max.
Do all of the above and they can last 400k miles. I have seen it many times.

No injectors, reman or new, from anyone, have a lifetime warranty.
???
The only kind of lifetime warranty I can give you is that I guarantee that they will wear out and need replacing, someday.

About a week. I do my best to schedule the builds to get them in and out.
