slight concern

Changed the GPR in my truck last night and did the oil as well. My dumbass tried to chance the HPOP oil as well and I dropped a small rubber hose in there. After staring at the setup for a while I was able to take it apart, take out the hose and put it back together.. My only concern is that it is ALOT more quiet now.. Is this a good or a bad thing? Im afraid I screwd up something in the HPOP and now it is running a lower pressure or something.. Some feedback from the experts would be nice

Just changing the oil will make it much more quiet. The new oil up in the injectors and
HPOP does that. Changing the oil in the HPOP didnt do anything except get a few more
ounces of the oil motor oil out.

If you messed up the HPOP it wouldnt want to run at all, or when getting on the throttle
it would set a SES light with low HPOP oil pressure.

My truck sets that code when pulling my 10k TT and running Tony's Tunes....

Just for my own knowledge, doesn't your new motor oil filter into the HPOP anyway? So is it really very beneficial to worry about changing it if I keep up with my oil changes?

Im not really sure about the 6.0. But i have heard it is a good idea to change it with the 7.3.. But its a pain in the anus without a pump.. I used a hand syphon.

Alright... Yes the oil and the oil in the hpop do mix/drain into each other. But its over a very long period of time like a long long time... Thats why when you change your oil just the oil it will still sound the same but if you change the oil and the oil in the hpop you will notice a difference. Its not a wasteful thing to do I would do it every other oil change but thats me. But they do end up mixing at some point.
