When was the new style STC fitting being replaced at Ford??

I bought my truck only a few months ago and wanted to know when they starting updating the STC fittings at the dealer. I noticed in the stack of receipts that came with the truck that the STC fitting was replaced at the dealer. I have to check the date when i get home, but i believe it was replaced only a couple of years ago.

I think right after all the engine design changes went into effect in January 2006 (STC fitting, 20mm head dowels, turbo oil drain and feed pipes, turbo unison ring... etc).

mine was replaced about 15,000 miles ago/3 years. You think Ford replaced it with the updated fitting?
