The EGR valave is used mostly when you back off the gas pedal and at idle for an extended time. The E bay stuff looks like a good buy.
The injectors have an micro screen filter built into the gas end of the injector. It could be they are not processing the fuel. 142K won't hurt the injectors as long as the fuel is clean.
I wish I could hear the noise. Is it a sheet metal noise (tinny) or a deep noise from the engine or exhaust? Sometimes the converter will break down inside and sounds like a rattling roar. Try and describe the noise a little better. Let me know
