Never ending?

I have an 03 6.0 and I’ve already changed 1injector and all the injector seals ran perfect for 6 months and it’s back at it. Is it even worth it? Say I changed all of the injectors and Got the bullet proof kit with the head studs and get delete oil pump ex. Is it still going to be a money pit after that or what I need opinions...

"It's back at it".... back at what? We need a lot more information.

Owning an older - maybe end of life - diesel is not for the faint of heart.

My own 6 has been really good to me for over 100,000 km now but I have been perfectly aware from the beginning that its fundamentally a grenade with wheels at each corner. It may go off at any time. Right now I've got a fairly regular contribution code which is telling me that its probably time for injectors. They've got roughly 400,000 km on them so no surprises there. I'm also seeing 10+ degree deltas on my oil/water temps so probably coming due for an oil cooler. I've got no particular reason to think I need a turbo other than that its also got around 400,000 km on it. So add all those up and maybe I should be looking at a long block. Trading it into an early production 6.7 would cost me roughly $0.10 per km so that makes a $10,000 Canuck bux long block look pretty attractive. Like I said - owning an older diesel is not for the faint of heart. What we should be doing is driving gassers but some of us like the smell of partially burnt diesel fuel.

Back at it as in I have another injector out... and as far as it being an end of life it only has 160000 miles it has a lot of life left I would think.

150,000 to 200,000 is the average life of injectors. Some get much more, some a lot less.
