7.3 wont start after injector replacement.

2000 f250 7.3

First of all my truck ran great. I ordered some 250/200cc hybrids from Swamps along with his tunes. Installed a 38r, head studs, comp springs and other smaller mods.

I ran this for about 2 weeks. Then an injector tip cracked/broke off. I sent out to swamps, got full replacement and they checked the other 7 also free of charge.

Installed the injectors, truck wont start. 3 days and 2 new battery's later it fires. I let it set and idle for maybe 30min-45min to let the air purge. It sounds rough. Blue smoke, smells like diesel.

I take it up the road, got about 1 mile and it died. Towed it home. Cant get it to fire since.

HPOP is FULL. Wait to start light comes on, 5 seconds later goes off like it should. Truck has two brand new CHARGED battery's.

Swamps says my injector failure could have been from a bad HPOP. Could a HPOP completely fail at an instant?

Any and all suggestions are helpful. I also replaced that IPC sensor last week too with a new OEM Ford one.

I hate just to throw money into it like this but I am lost.

The AE should be a life saver. I bought one and it paid for itself the first time that I used it. For me it happened to be the exact same scenario as you, my truck would not start after injector replacement. It turned out that my IPR wiring had frayed while I was replacing the injectors. Go figure lol.
