The hard start issue may not be injectors. Have you tested your FICM? How about batteries? What year truck? What motor oil? Which fuel/oil filters? Did you pull any codes with a GOOD scan tool?

With the '05 it sounds like a HPOP system leak, not injectors. STC fitting, stand pipes, dummy plugs, or HPOP. classic signs of these is no/hard start when motor is hot.

Completely agree. Start testing that HPOP system.

Yup, prolly the STC fitting is going. Look into it before spending money on injectors. They are prolly not your problem.
