It started and ran for about a couple of mins and them water and fuel light came on and it started smoking and missing real bad to the point that it wouldn't start any more , they are wanting to replace all injectors and pump and clean tank and lines but Iam worried it might have done deeper damage

I would drop and clean the tank and all the fuel lines, change filters, and the fuel rails. I'd hold off on injectors for right now. Hopefully everything else takes care of the issue.
