Injector Cores?

I just picked up a full set of 8 motorcraft injectors for my 2005 6.0 on craigslist. They've never been opened and are all still in original packaging. Since my truck has 160,000 miles on it I can't see any of the "good" injectors having much life left so I was just going to sell all the old injectors as cores. How much are rebuilding companies paying for cores? If I have the original packaging to put them in can I really get $180 a peice for them at ford?

Why don't you contact one of the companies who rebuilds injectors and ask them? I would be shocked if Ford would give you the full core charge for your cores when you didn't buy new injectors from them.

When I bought injectors last time, the cores were worth 140 a piece. You may be able to sell them to someone here who needs cores...

Yea Ford will most likely not give you core value unless you have the invoice where they were originally purchased...

Best Place to Buy Injectors?

i need to replace my injectors and i am wondering where is the best place to get them. i can get them from ford for about $1800 for a set but that is some crazy money. what about rebuilds? does anyone know who sells 6.0 injectors?

IMO you are better off with Ford remans. They have more things done to them for restoration of original performance than any other remanufacturer - period.

Well taken care of injectors should last very close to 250k miles.

Edit - I typed 150k miles at first. meant to say 250k.
