Just got the verdict on my truck, need help, direction, ideas, anyone and everyone!!

Okay so i started this post a few weeks ago about my truck Okay smoke at start up, stops down the road, diagnose me :/

Well it kept getting worse start up when colder was just hard hard hard to get it to going it would die, smoke like no other, and once started it ran fine with foot on gas, sit and idle and it would shake the shiiii out of you, so put it in the shop to have the tests run........ didnt come out good heres the list:

Two bad injectors need replacing
The wiring harnesses that go with each of these(i believe thats how he explained it)
and needs the Glow Plug Relay replaced.

Alright, what im asking from yall are How to's, any that yall have found that help out on doing these things, websites to buy these things, anything and all info for this kind of stuff, i will probably just do this myself to save the money! if it looks like something i can do!

Truck is a Early 99 F350

Thanks guys!

Injectors are not that bad to install.There are many write-ups on the subject on this forum,search it and you'll find them.The wiring harness is part of the valve cover gasket,so you'll have it off anyway.Check out "guzzles" Welcome to guzzle's Stancor GPR replacement Mod Web Page for the glowplug relay install,very easy.Honestly if you have some talent mechanically all of what you mentioned is something that can be done in a weekend if you have the parts.

All of this would take you only a few hours to replace. GPR is easy easy easy. UVCH is also easy and you'll be right there when you do injectors. Depending on mileage, I'd look into replacing all of the injectors and glow plugs while you're under the hood.

Alright thanks guys, i will start looking for the how to's! as far as going stage ones or changing everything, the main reason ill be doing this myself is to save money, while im shopping for these things i will look into the upgrade options possible, but have to keep the money in mind as well!

What are some of the best sites to shop for these things on?

Thanks!

Okay heres where im at, and still have a few questions, if i just stay cheap as possible, ill be buying 2 injectors probably rebuilds, the gpr i need, and the UVHC's i think thats what its called haha, however i saw somewhere that they need a clip that can fix them or the 50 cent mod? id probably go for the clip, but could that be the issue or do i need new ones? also where can i buy them???? havnt seen any uvhc anywhere haha!

Also probably gonna go ahead and do the DIY 6637 intake since im taking the box out anyways.

However if i decide stage 1s i was looking into rosewood diesel, they do rebuilds of your current injectors, Rosewood Diesel Shop has anyone used them?? And gauges, and probably a chip if i went that route, however thats a very large IF

May get gauges either way not sure yet!

Thanks!

Rosewood is good. But for the prices they want, you could get some Swamps injectors shipped to your door with no down time for a little more cash. Of course, there would be a core charge, but that would be refunded as soon as you send your old ones in.

Is it the tow mild street thats 175/146 would that be stage 1s?

Thanks for the link!!

also i was looking and IF i went with the rosewood premium rebuilds, they offer stage 2 for the same price, would that make any sense? basically id like them to be able to run without a chip, however I will probably chip if i go with stage 1 or 2 i want to be able to remove the chip and them run, would they be able to without a chip? and what would be advantage of stage 2 over 1 if i went rebuilds

however that swamp deal looks good but just trying to look at every possibility!

Thanks!
