avout to do injectors, anything else while im there?

I have a hard working 00 with 230k. I think its time for inj. Going with swamps single shot stage one. Looking for mild increase in hp, but also mpg.

I'd probably do the valve seals but that is going to be some extra work

What about checking all of the bolts for correct torque. I read on a site that when you do the ucvh it is wise to check everything while in there. Sometimes the bolts work loose a little over time and re torquing them will also quiet the motor noise a little. Follow specs on in/lbs. Dont break anything :-)

Injector cups... Your gonna have to run custom tunes for your truck to run right after swapping injectors if you are going to a single shot injection

I have NEVER seen anyone replace cups for no reason, thatd like hey, your head gaskets are old, replace them, even though they're perfectly and aren't that prone to fail
