    It seems to have a misfire, hits somewhat under load. I want to crack injector lines. I can't find any useful YouTube videos. It appears the injectors lines go to side of head. It looks like I almost need a special wrench just to loosen them. Also how do I remove injectors?

    No offence but cracking injection lines on a modern diesel engine is an EXTREMELY stupid move and not at all a recommended practice. Fuel system pressures are very high (can be upwards of 14,000 PSI). That fuel spray will tear you up like nothing and getting injected fuel out of you is NOT a pleasant experience. They cut you open like Frankenstein's Monster and vacuum it all out.

    Plus it is not recommended to re-use high pressure fuel lines once they've been loosened. The ends of the lines typically deform upon installation to match the fitting 100% perfectly.

    THIS. Injection injuries are no joke. If you don't go to the hospital or if you go and they brush it off and don't treat you you are likely to end up dead or an amputee.
    Also this. Great way to solve the problem forever by burning the truck down.
