Injector PROBLEMS!!! BIG MONEY!!!

I took my 01' to a local shop to get what I thought was tranny work which turned out to be a brake problem. I noticied the day I was taking it over there it felt like a miss fire but it wasnt that bad. When he returned the truck to me it seemed to run better (didnt have him mess with the miss fire problem). But I wanted someone that knew a little more about powerstrokes look the truck over a little closer. On the night that I took it over over to him the truck ran like complete crap. Idled really bad so bad it was shaking the truck. Then when I was driving at a low RPM it would shake but higher RPM's it wouldnt run that bad but was still misfiring occasionally. Now that i got my heart breaking story out of the way the guy I took it to quoted me $3000 to go back to stock injectors(I have stage 2's now not sure what kind). Then he recommended new cups because of the higher compression from the upgraded turbo and injectors. To do the cups he said another $500. Now this is all if we cant figure what injectors are bad and are able to match them up with the ones in there now. Anyone have any suggestions or places to get it done cheaper? I live in NW ohio area and am willing to take a little cruise. Any encouraging words?

The only reason he gave me as far as the injectors was because of the misfire and alls he did was started opened the throttle a few times and we drove around for a few miles. As far as the cups go he said to do it because of the compression.

Yeah what he said! There are to many things to check that can make them run funny. Just reving it up a couple of times ain't gonna cut it.

Yes sir found that out first hand took my truck there today they had a fast diagnoses unfortunately it wasnt one I wanted to here but still better than what the other guy told me. 2 injectors were completely dead, 2 of them were spraying weak, I didnt think this but saw it with my own eyes I snapped a bent a pushrod really bad. Thank god it didnt damage the engine. So there fixing the injectors, all new stronger pushrods, and valve springs(he thinks im floating valves). No complaints what so ever as of right now would recommend them to anyone will post again when the work is completed
