How come you cant fix it yourself? Be a good time to get in and get dirty and learn.

o-ring for hpop 5$
tank pickup kit from strictly diesel 170$
1 injector 220$

395$

And then you can spend the remaining $ 905 on some go fast goodies instead of mechanic labour. And there's the satisfaction of doing it yourself.
