Will I need new gaskets?

So, I have an issue where my truck runs smooth and strong one minute and then feels like Im pulling a train the next, then smooths out again. I recently rebuilt my fuel bowl and have a little over 65psi, so Im guessing I'm good there. I was planning on new stage 1 injectors this week and valve cover gaskets, uvch, glow plugs and relay. BUT... I had a tire develop a huge ball while traveling with famly this weekend and had to pull the trigger on a new set of tires instead . There went my injector money.

I still need to fix the original problem. I'm looking at Accurate Diesel's complete kit. So my question is... If I order the kit and get this all installed, will I need new gaskets when I order the injectors in another month or two? I hate to spend money twice but need to find a fix for this issue.

What gaskets?

The UVC gaskets are completely reuseable. Unless the plug is burnt there is no reason to replace them.

I mean the valve cover gaskets. I don't know if there is any damage or not. Since I will be going back in when I do the injectors I thought I should as first.
