Injectors! Too many options

This is my first powerstroke, I've had it just over a year. I recently installed the bellowed up pipes and installed the WW2. All other mods were from previous owner. Anyways, I tow a 7000 lb. enclosed trailer every weekend in the summer. Truck is not daily driven. I have a long start problem (5 seconds or so) that I have traced as an oil leak in the heads. Truck runs good with number 8 injector failing cylinder contribution. I plan to upgrade injectors and replace glow plugs this fall/winter. I have looked at so many injectors I have just further confused myself. I'm not looking for big horsepower gains or to upgrade my oil pump or anything else any further. I was eyeballing the Swamps 175/146 injectors as they are supposed to bump HP a little and increase fuel economy. That is all I am after. So before I throw out $1500+ having injectors rebuilt and my chip reflashed, should I be considering other options? Not looking at a brand war as I am sure there are several great ones. I just want the best bang for my buck. Thanks

swamps has an excellent warranty.
i wouldnt hesitate to buy rosewoods, swamps, full force, or P.I.S. i havent heard bad things about any of them.
injectors are next on my list because everything else has been taken care of. (Knock on wood)

recall cps is known to cause "3 and "8 to fail on the cct test.
can swap in a borg warner or delphi cps and see if it still fails.

I put the black CPS with purple oring from one of the diesel sites in it. It had the recall sensor it it. 3 went away and 8 stayed. I'm just guessing 215k has probably made them a little tired. I suspect I have an oring leaking in the passenger side head as it will not hold pressure. When I go in there, I'm replacing everything.
