08 6.4 cylinder 2 contribution/miss balance

I've notice my truck been running a bit odd, I checked the codes for piece of mind and found the number 2 cyl code. I ran some injector cleaner through ran good for that night an code didn't come back till the next day. Now it's still running rough just a slight Lopey idle and no smoke or weird noises and seems to have a bit of a power loss. Should I change the injector and if so how hard is it to get the injector out?
Oh and the fuel filter were recently changed.

Sounds like an injector is going bad. Get it fixed ASAP. You don't want it to stick open and melt or crack a piston.

That's what i'm hoping that it's just a injector, I just ordered one we'll see how it goes. What's install time on one and what do I need?

Honestly I have never installed one. The lines leading to the injector need to be replaced. You cant reuse them.

So to replace the injector I need a new feed tube and electric connector?
