Injectors, All the same?

Okay so I have #2,6,and #8 injectors bad "according to dealer". They offered up injectors at $350+ and I said no thanks. My thought is if I am going to replace injectors, might as well do it once and then be done. I have browsed the web and haven't really found anyone that says one injector beats out another. I only have 88K miles and am religious with oil changes and service. Is there a brand I should look at? go with factory injectors? DieselLogic? Any help would be appreciated.

Probably a harness bad. This a 7.3?

I made my Samsung SGH-I997 send this.

No, 6.0.. They didn't say anything about a harness issue. cold, these injectors are not firing until warmed up...

Check batteries for load handling, battery connections, ficm still and while cranking. Then try again

Injectors should not have failed at only 80k. I smell a bad/weak FICM.

I had FICM checked already. it's good... The dealer tried to say I hadn't been changing the oil, but I do it every 5k, and have receipts. Unfortunately I'm past the warranty for the five years....

How and who checked the FICM? There is more than one aspect/function of a FICM that needs to be correct/checked.

If the dealer is blaming you for the failures, ie; oil changes, he also seemingly knows the injectors shouldn't have failed at this early mileage. So,,,You state you have done the oil changes required, and I believe you in part because poor oil changes don't really lead to failed injectors, so there must/should/may be another reason the injectors failed. ie: A FICM with a failing DC-DC converter, making less than the needed 48v, but may still look ok on an IDS.

Bottom line, I would look into what caused the failures, be it the FICM or other. Injectors aren't cheap, and labor ain't also.
