Fuel Injector Question

I found a few references in the Qlist Archives
concerning replacing the injectors on older 200s and
5000s because they had somekind of problem with some
rubber piece.  I don't believe the 20V Turbo (3B?)
engine is subject to this problem (and I suppose that's
why Blauf. only suggests replacing them on the 10V
engines after x miles).

Are there any BTDT for fuel injectors regarding life
expectancy? or are these a maintenance item like spark
plugs?  What about TAPs sport injectors? will they work
or are other mods required?
