[Es2] Help! My @#$%!!! fuel injectors are trashed

So, my 3B turbo transplant project is crawling along. J&E pistons 
shipped yesterday, so the engine mechanicals will be ready very soon. I 
have solutions for most of the big transplant issues, and I thought I'd 
spend a few $ to clean up the stock fuel injectors that came with my 
donor 3B. Sent them all to Marren for testing and cleaning. Then I got 
"the call" from Marren. You know it's bad when they don't leave much of 
a message, but just ask you to call them back asap. It's bad, one 
injector is totally unserviceable and the others won't flow enough.

Marren is recommending a set of 36lb/hr models as a replacement/upgrade 
option for $425/set. How does this sound? They are also recommending a 
new fuel pressure regulator. Is this required? What is everyone else 
doing? Which ECU upgrade should I do to match the new fuel system?

I need to make a decision soon, so, thanks for any help.
