Stuck in a jam! Injectors

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Ive got a 99 f250 7.3 forged rods not studed, 250k on chassis rebuilt engine at 160k due to rod failure. bought the truck for a 1000 bucks and that was the start of my powerstroke way of life. its a 99 extracab shortbed 2wd auto 4r100, 4in exh, intake, flashpaq tuner, but mostly stock id say. its been AN AWESOME truck and problem free. Where I stand now is I was coming out to az from ca to visit parents for Thanksgiving and I lost number one Injector, Luckily I brought out my snap-on solus tester and was able to run a buzz test and cct test and verified which cyl it is.... Ok sorry for the long story but wanted to give a quick background of the truck. Ive searched and searched but haven't found the info I need. im very green when it comes to huei and these injectors. due to the mileage I want to replace all 8 not just the one, the truck is in az I live in ca so I was gonna pull em rent a car drive home and ship em out this Monday morning. whats the best bang for your buck place? I read sooooo much different stuff. I wanna go just a little bigger if possible maybe stage 1? just don't want to have to open a can of worms and have to do hpop, turbo, live tunes at the same time. just wanna get the truck back up and running. If im gonna spend the money on injectors just don't wanna buy stock ones is all. what do you all recommend? Thanks

I like "No Limit Tuning and Design"
They'll sell you Stage 1 160/30's with free custom tunes for like $1400
If you need a TS style chip to run the tunes (and you will) that's only like $250 I think

With that and maybe a new style turbo wheel you're good to go without live tuning and hpop upgrades.

Are you sure that you lost an injector though? Look into all the UVCH stuff and make sure it's all plugged in where its supposed to be.
This problem you're having may only need the 50 cent mod to fix

I agree with the UVCH comment that Joel made. I did the 50cent mod after my passenger side harness came disconnected, worked like a charm

if the undercover valve harness came unplugged I would loose more than just one injector though, I would think. Its come unplugged before and have lost the entire bank. repaired cleaned and secured so wouldn't happen again. I ran A CCT test and got cyl 1. prior to this happening with a CCT test no faults present. With 250 miles on stock set of injectors I assume its time and their done. Will pull valve cover in the morning and we'll see whats up.

The 30 stands for 30% larger than stock sized nozzles
The large nozzle allows your tuner to dump the more fuel with less pulse width. You can only utilize so many CC's of fuel out of the stock sized holes.

I would really look into every possible issue under there before doing injectors..... Unless of course you're excited about the added power, then by all means just go for it.
