6.0 needs injectors? weird vibration... what brand?

I got a 06 6.0 i just picked up. it has a vibration around 1500rpm in all gears and neutral and around like 2100 so is that injectors? any ideas? the truck has stock injectors and it has 110k on it and it has ARP studs egr delete and sct tuner. please help me out and what brand injectors should i get? also if i get injectors should i get a ficm to? please gimme your 2cents

Well I was just driving to the cabin about a 80 mile drive. well about 20mile into the drive the vibration continued though the RPM range up to about 2500. Well I got about 50mile in and when it was around 2500 rpm it didnt seem to have near the power it should. well i got off my exit and it was runnin rough almost like i had a lope idle installed. Well it cleared up after i gave it some gas. Well I got to my cabin and plugged my SCT scanner in and Code P0278 was showing for cylinder 6 combustion. The truck has 111k on it with stock injectors so is this pointing to injectors now? If so what brand should I get? and rebuilt ones? And should I get a new FICM to?

kinda pissed cuz it has a jump in the front end i think it needs a steering stabilizer. But it ran good when i got is a week ago and got a slight vibration and got worse then this happened... and i got no smoke just a little whit at start up. so idk if its a ficm. and yes gonna do the work myself. But if i get new injectors imma get a new ficm to be safe

Well truck is not running like it should.... I had a 6.0 before from new so i know how they should run. I get a big vibration/moan now. and in park if i rev to like 1500-1700 rpm the truck develops a light shaking.... no codes were thrown since i only drove it 6 miles but is this pointing towards injectors now?

Come over to the 6.0L Power Stroke Diesel - Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forums
You will get faster answers and we all own the 6.0 and/or work on them.
On the injectors stick with OEM from Ford or Navistar
The carp on Ebay is just that crap. Lost of cases of old O-rings used
and injectors not really serviced right.
