Question Need a little advice on injectors

I just received news today that my '02 F-250 7.3L powerstroke needs 4 injectors. Since this is my first diesel truck I have a few questions.

Question 1: I know injectors aren't like spark plugs. But since I have 4 bad ones should I look into getting them all replaced? My truck has 168,000 miles.

Question 2: I would like to increase fuel MPG for around town and maybe have a little extra power towing. What's the best and safest way I can achieve this without spending a ton of money?

I'm a very easy driver and don't beat on my vehicles. I'm not looking into having the fastest truck either. Just to increase fuel mileage and have a little extra boost when towing that's all.

Any feedback would be great... Thank you for your time and your reply!

you might try a stage 1 160cc single shot injector. remans around 1000 dollars and they'll need your cores and you'll need custom tunin to run single shot injectors

When you say remans is that what it would cost after I send back all 8 of my stock injectors?

I would change them all if you could. stage 1's will add a tad bit, not very noticeable though, i dont think... But make sure you go single shots with good tuning and your mpgs will go up.

2000 F-250 216k- smoke much?

Rosewood, Beans Diesel, Swamps Diesel, and a bunch of others.

I am running Rosewood premium rebuilt injectors and am extremely pleased. I am so pleased I went with them to build me some big hybrids even though everything else I am doing is coming from Beans. Very pleased with Jim's work.

BTW you have a PM
