What do you use your truck for?

1. Tuning from innovative diesel

2. Bypass oil filter and Coolant filter.

3. Synthetics in the diffs, transfercase and engine.

4. You can either buy the fuel banjo bolts, or drill out the ones you have now.

5. CCV catch can

Exactly what I was thinking.... along with the coolant filter, switch to ELC...
I just did everything above except the FICM tuning. With 190s and powermax my fuel pressure doesn't drop below 60psi at WOT. So the AirDog can wait for me...

05 F250 4x4 CC, 9.5" Rize/Icon, 38" Toyos, 20x12 Pacers, 5" MBRP, AFE stage 2, Cass 190s, Powermax, ELC w/filter, RCD EGR delete
04 Excursion 4x4, vacation bus
Project 1979 F250 6.0 powered in progress

Yep, I agree! But you're lucky bondsman, I've been having trouble with my fuel pump keeping up with just an Xtreme file and stock injectors.

Gonna get the updated FPR and 6.4 banjos to see if it'll fix my problem.
