Apparently, they can be.
I doubt cleaning them will make them any quieter but that's where I would start anyways.
If you are set on buying new ones, Rockauto has the 21 lb "pink" injectors but they aren't cheap.

What if I don't want pink ones? Haha. I looked at some purple ones last night but they were nearly $700 for the set.

Haha.
That's about what the "pinks" will set you back...

The colors just indicate how many pounds of fuel each injector will flow.

That's disappointing. So I couldn't buy 19lbs in purple?

Nope.
You can only get the 19's in orange. But you can paint them any color you want.
The 21 lb pink injectors are what Ford updated the 02-04 Gt's with.

Naw. Ford didn't change the tune on the cars when they increased the injector size.

Well could be the timing chain tensioners. They can get weak and cause the valves to start ticking. Or could be a plug getting ready to blow out.

I've used Seafoam with some good results. There is another product called Star Tron Enzyme Fuel Treatment ($8.99/bottle) that even got my old hasn't been used in years gas powered edger running like it was new.

I'd definitely try this stuff before changing injectors.

I had that kind of ticking sound.

I blew spark plug#7 rethreaded the threading and the ticking sound was gone.

sounds loud on the video... I thought piston slap too.

Did you try a fuel system cleaning?... at a shop?... not guaranteed to work, but if your are positive that its the injectors, it couldnt hurt to try and remove some carbon from the top end.
