Default 2003 Excursion 6.0 -which ones do you stay away from?

Looking at a 2003 Excursion with the 6.0. I know there were trouble with the injectors this year and I think I remember that it could be narrowed down to the actual build date -but how do you tell what the build date is for a car? It is in the VIN? If anyone can tell me what the dates were to stay away from, I would appreciate it. If it is in the VIN, here it is:

1FMSU43P23EB55469

Thanks in advance.

My opinion....Stay away from Any 6.0 built before Sept 30 2003. I also heard that the 03 Excursions had more problems than the pick ups. Be careful. The build date is on the sticker on the driver side door panel
