Unhappy What to check for ?

My 05 SD is in the Ford shop, two days now, they said 5 injectors failed the test. Their going to replace all 8, my question is, is there anything else that should be replaced at this time (while it's torn down)? The service manager said "no" they checked everything else, but I get a 12mo. 12000 mi. warranty for the injectors only, thats it...Oh $3000 for repair... also only 72000 miles

Weak fuel psi and weak FICM volts can send injectors to an early grave. It's also a good idea to switch to a 5w40 diesel synthetic oil.
