injector suggestions

Been running WVO in my 99 7.3L for over 3 years now. I feel like I might have some injector issues. Does anyone have any suggestions for aftermarket/high performance injectors that work well with WVO. I don't want to go too big because I want to maintain so kind of good fuel economy. I am only getting around 15 right now. Or should I just stay stock and fix the ones that are bad?

I have successfully cleaned my injectors by first removing all oils outside and inside the injector by dipping them in clean acetone twice. Then I soak them over night in a light acetic solution of vinegar or carbonated water, which is carbonic acid. Then I dry them in denatured alcohol, then scrape the remaining carbon off the injectors with razor blade, dental pick and wire brush, then soak in WD-40 until needed.

I now have three sets of used injectors that I have prepared in the above manor. I pull them from wrecks at junkyards for $88/set. I have two sets of injectors soaking in WD-40 for 2 months now.

Here is a pic of a coked injector:

Jeff do you have a PSD or are you running the older style 7.3?
