Under the Knife! PICS! / Build Thread!!!

So i started having some starting problems, and some smoke issues upon start, running sluggish...

So i've decided to tear her down and make it right. Im going to replace the Injector O-Rings, Fuel Filter, Oil Change, Cam Positioning Sensor, HPOP Seals, taking the rubber down to 39.5's, removing fender flares, New Batteries, Air Filter, and some other minor things.

If you can think of some other things that would be cheap to change or upgrade while im doing all of this then let me know.

If the O-Ring change doesn't help then i may just have them rebuilt, suggestions?

And the Pics as promised, im sure ill be updating this thread every few days or so with pics!!!

The way i have to work on her since i hate taking off the tires...



Engine bay with the Air Box , 7.3 Cover, Batteries, and Turbo Pipe...





Stuff that's been removed...




Stay tuned and give me some tips and feedback!

Blake.

update!!!!!!!!!!

Had some time to work on the truck before work yesterday and today.

Got the clips, and valve cover off!



Then today, got the injectors out!




Going to try and rebuild them tomorrow and put back in.

Anyone think they are worth rebuilding? or should i buy new?
