5.9 injector life span

I've got a 2004 5.9 with 160,000 miles, I"m getting some white smoke (not much) I notice it when I'm idling at stop lights.

What are people getting for their average life span on their injectors?

I mis spelled the subject :-)

im at 70K and have not seen a puff of white smoke. i guess the lifespan of the injectors have to do with how hard you run them. id guess that the more tuners or power you try to push through them the faster they go out.

Just had my #6 crap out on me. In a pinch I put in a new one, but I'm QUICKLY getting ready to do the rest of them with 50hp nozzles. If you are running a pressure adder then they will wear out quicker than stock obviously. Also learning a hard lesson about fuel filtration on this one.

Forgot, 120,000 miles
