Now i can see if they are left open or the diesel had water in it but i don't see blaming the injectors being stored the problem.

Looking at that photo, i can see contamination and/or rust from improper storage could surely be an issue.

Just my experience in over ten years of racing and storing fuel parts while new builds are happening.

X2 I put an LBZ back together that was taken apart by another shop and the truck sat for two years. The injectors were not seal or cleaned and the truck started and ran fine after I put it together.

Who knows the real history of these injectors anyway. Let alone how they were stored.

What about vacuum packaging them?
I used atf in cp3 though.

Truck is running great on stock injectors. This is definitely not user error, injectors are defective forsure.
