Dropped #6&7 injectors Twice!

I'm new to the board so sorry if i mess this first post up.
Anyway I completely dropped #4 injector about 6 months ago and sent all 8 injectors to a shop to be rebuilt (against all local diesel mechanics recommendations) they were suppose to install new barrels, plungers, tips and o-rings. I installed the 8 reman injectors ran a tank of fuel through it and it ran like poo, white smoke and way rich smelling from start and never cleared up. buzzed injectors 6 & 7 were bad. pulled them the tips were covered with burnt deposits. Installed 2 more remans from same place fired it up and still had miss not nearly as bad though. drove about 50 miles buzzed injectors and 6 wasn't quite as strong as rest but 7 sounded fine.
Ran about 3 tanks through it like that, it progressively got worse, until it quit on me last week. scaned and buzzed it 6 and 7 bad again and i think i got a 1209 code and 1211 code fuel system/oil pressure codes. and cam sensor. but got same codes before when it droped #4 and the cam sensor was fine and i tried a different cam senor and no luck.

this is a 2000 Van w/160,xxx miles, no mods, frequent oil changes, new fuel filter every 15,000, fresh air filters as needed 1 owner. Vans suck to wrench on about 4-6 hour job pulling and replacing both valve covers with an assistant.

Have you done cylinder contribution test. Have you ohm tested the harness to make sure it is good. Harness is a lot cheaper then injectors.

I already had all 8 injectors rebuilt and they have warranty. I can't do contrabution test, it won't run. won't even smoke while cranking.

could be ICP or weak HPOP causing problems or maybe fuel pump. You have got to have good presures going to the injectors to keep them happy.

ICP is the sensor on the Drivers side head towards the front. Pull the plug and check for oil in the connection, should be dry. HPOP = High Pressure Oil Pump.
