The blue spring is highly recommended. As for the 6.4 banjos, there are mixed opinions. Do a search and make your own decision.

I would do the blue spring whenever you can. The Banjo Bolts are not something I'd wake up on a Saturday morning and go: "Alright, today's the day for new Banjo Bolts". It's more of a thing like "well since I'm into it this far I may as well go ahead and do it.

Agreed! Honestly just stick with the ones that were designed for the 6.0, there is no performance gain of adding 6.4 banjo bolts. As said above though, do the blue spring ASAP and monitor the fuel psi. Last thing you want to be doing is replacing injectors because you didn't monitor your fuel psi!

Just because we can't figure out why something was made a certain way by an engineer is not a reason to "reinvent the wheel". Had a bud that got rid of his banjos but he added his own checkvalves to the tubing.

just asked this on the other thread,

did he test for any gains, why go through the trouble and expense when there are no gains to be had when swapping.

again, you will gain nothing by swapping to the 6.4 bolts.

the 6.0 have check valves or something in them where the 6.4 banjos have no check valves and have 4 holes where 6.0 ones have 2 if i remember correctly. its not really a perf gain thing, more of a peace of mind knowing that accompanied by the blue spring update your injectors are getting fed as much fuel as they possibly can with nothing hindering the flow. they take no time to swap out and they are fairly cheap. my two cents

btw, if your having fuel related issues, i wouldnt think the blue spring is gonna fix anything. what makes you think your having fuel issues? do you have a fuel pressure gauge? how old are your fuel filters and are you using motorcraft? just some ideas to throw out there
