Find a F1 injector dealer. Had all 6 of mine completely rebuilt and flow matched with flux 2 nozzels for $1800. very pleased. You can add 50 to75 hp and not need to upgrade fuel system.

you could save yourself some money and just install them yourself. its really easy, just follow what link says and you will be ok, this is what i used when i did mine.

oh, its just a good idea to replace your connector tube when you do your injectors also. Because sometimes the old tubes wont seal right with the new injectors and they could leak.

if you're over 80k miles and not running a 2 micron FF, replace all 6.

for engine longevity, 2 micron FF and water separator.
I think clean fuel helps but it is not the fix all for the injectors cracking. I am running 3 fuel filters and 2 water seperators. And I cracked a body with flux 3.5 tips.

F-1 website says 1100 for the 40 hp upgrade and a body is 150 each. Don does great work but if money is tight Wicked Diesels makes great tips and I think he can get you a good body. Where are you located??

i would replace all the injectors myself, just for the peace of mind knowing that if you have problems with one right now, you can bet your last dollar you will have more problems with the rest down the rd. its not a hard job to do, just keep everything clean. i'm not a mech and have done serveral injector swaps for people. 40HP tips, you will be fine with no fuel mods, although it will feel better with upgrades down the rd if you want. thats a nice size increase too.nothing too much and maybe better mileage.

Midatlantic Diesel

I am very displeased with this business, I have sent my injectors to their company a week ago and I have been calling an e-mailing. I'm starting to think I have been had, because the mail in address was for a place in Texas. Please beware, I'm still waiting to hear something but they will not call me back. The number on the website is only an answer machine. I have received 4 e-mails from blackberrys telling me we will look into it but nothing yet. Please think twice.

F1 (DonM) is located in the Dallas area which is where you shiped your injectors most likely. MidAtlanticDiesel is just a distributor for F1 and does not actually do the work. They might not have heard back from DonM yet. You havent been scammed. With the way F1 is setup customer service is lacking.

Thanks! That's reassuring. By the way I will be in Midland this week Friday-Monday, do you have a direct number to F1 in the Dallas area.
