02 injector failure

I have a 2002 duramax with a few bad injectors. I am looking to replace them with a new set of performance injectors. Nothing crazy mabye a 50hp set. Any recommendations.

My first advice is to replace all of them if your budget allows.

Second, dont buy 'used' or 'reworked' injectors. Stick with Bosch or OEM units.

A small increase in size when properly done will help fuel mileage and power. Couple with a good tune and your on the right track.

I stock the injectors as well as all the seals needed. Also have available to rent/loan an injector removal tool. Be more then happy to provide you a price on injectors as well as any advice you seek

What is wrong with using reworked injectors? I have never used remanufactured stuff, but the injectors seemed to be ok. What issues have you seen with remanufactured injectors? I really don't know...
