Since you got the valve cover off why not... Just a extra hour to adjust the valves...:

to change the injectors u have to take the valve bridges off and to do that u have to back the valves off so unless you are good at guessing then you will have to reset them.

i think?

You don't have to touch the valves when doing an injector swap. However, it would be a good opportunity if you are over 115K miles and have never done it.
