White Smoke with Power Loss - update

Update from previous post 09-F250, 40K - Ford says water in fuel destroyed HPFP and 3 pistons failed. Never had water light come on and they tested fuel and within range. Here is a picture from the part off the top of the HPFP which Ford says shows rust which means water and therefore no coverage under warranty. Dealership took apart the HPFP and low and behold parts failure with two broken springs inside HPFP. Ford is now replacing HPFP and all 8 pistons, fuel filters, etc. We will see what happens

6.4s are CRITICAL about getting water in the fuel system. if any water gets to the hp pump, the entire fuel system must be replaced. i work at a ford dealer and thats what tech line tells us to do. susprised they are repairing all that instead of giving you a new engine. i would think it'd be cheaper to replace an engine than all 8 pistons and the whole fuel system?

no im not saying that. im saying that I would imagine it would cost less to replace the engine than the pull the engine and replace all 8 pistons and repair the fuel system. They always do whatever cost less to repair.
