So, a couple years ago, my truck had a couple injectors put in it while still under factory warranty #2 and #5. Just here recently, 2 more died #1 and #5, so that's #5 in less than 50k miles...however there were complications when cleaning hfcm that may have helped lead to that, or helped finish it off. My wife works at a parts store, she spoke to a guy just today with an 03 f250 with a 6.0 has had no trouble, not a bit, no injectors, no nothing...275k miles, literally must be one in a million. Got me to thinking, with no trauma, adequate fuel pressure, great batteries, and corresponding great ficm, how long do they actually last?

Seems simple enough, except when talking to a couple local shops, the dealer, and reading on here, it looks like some injectors are more problematic than others...the #5 in particular, not just because of my truck, but I've seen probably more #5's going bad than others...is it just me, or any correlation? Does one bank tend to loose fuel pressure before the other, and lead to bad injectors more frequently? Just wondering.

I'll need to check my records when I get home to see which 2 injectors were replaced. I've got 6 original injectors that are about to hit 200k, the two that were replaced have about 75k on them.

Mine had all 8 original injectors that I replaced at 134,xxx when I did studs and gaskets.
That's kinda my problem, I'm at 145k, and while its cheaper for me to go in there and change the injectors one at a time, as they go bad its still a pain. After much review, ill probably be going with 8 injectors from warren diesel. Figure while I'm in there ill do it once, possibly upgrade too.

In the process of ordering a sct ts from Vivian, I need to ask her I guess what she thinks about the stock+ warren injectors ...155 with stock tips as i understand. I mean, if tueres a little more power to be had, and if they get the same or better mileage, why not. If they're not much bigger than stock, I can't see them raising cylinder pressures that much to be an issue with head gaskets. I know its been covered elsewhere, but thoughts on warren stock plus vs stock vs new dealership injectors?

Very impressive...some of this makes me want to take the chance on my other 6 injectors that arent bad currently and see if they'll live longer. I'm really leaning towards 8 warren diesel injectors.

What's the thoughts on warren's stock plus injectors? Any experiance with em, fuel mileage, power...does it have to be tuned different for them?

I'd be very curious to know what factory pcm and ficm flash the really higher mikeage ones are on, those over the 150k mark still with the ones it left the factory with. Pretty interesting, I wonder if its the flash that makes them die sooner, or the oil, the fuel. Certainly the bad ones couldnt have all run out of fuel and/or had bad batteries leading to bad ficm...but it would appear that they dont really wear out per say, at least not with any correlation.
