cross over oil line

I was on ebay this morning and found a diesel shop selling a different oil cross over line for the injectors. Has anyone here done that mod? Is it worth the money, and how difficult was the line to change?

Thanks
Jared

I did it and liked it.
Only thing is, I wouldn't use a rubber line. Use a hard line. It'll last much longer, no possibility of lines wearing out or crimps cracking. That's what happened to me. One crimp finally cracked, got a new one, it was done poorly and blew apart. So I will only do hard lines now.

Post a link. They shouldn't be more than 75 or so, depending on the line.
And it's easy to change. Undo two plugs on the HPO rail, put in the new line.

It is worth it, smooths engine out quite a bit, and like above, make sure it is a good quality hose. Mine is a stainless steel braided one from Tymar. Dale also has the best price on it

I have a Rubber one and the crimps are starting to leak, What size are the threads so I can replace with hard line?

Did it on mine and a friends 2000. Did smooth out my idle didn't notice much difference on the 2000. I think it is more noticeable with single shot injectors than the split shots.

Noticed it a lot on mine. It depends on HPOP, IPR, ICP, and anything to do with the HPO system.
