the best advice u will ever get from Bill Hewitt: the three F's, fluids, filters, and fuel. this is some of the best advice for any diesel owner, it will save you alot of headaches down the road.

That works. But make sure you dont go too big and weaken the bolt.

The 6.0 guys have an advantage. the 6.4 banjo bolts fit our trucks and do the same thing as what he's talking about

Ive wondered too about this mod over the last few days. Does anyone have a link to the forums about the outcome of this mod?
Imo this mod might possibly give a quicker throttle repsponse at the bottom and high ends on a stock injecr's, without eating any extra fuel.
re: Hewitt ive learned alot about my powerstroke 7.3 and how to with his videos than anyone or any read on the net. I cant find any reason not to like his how to videos....

That is just bad. We know him personally and to say he is a nice guy is an understatment. My FICM took a dump on me the day before we left on vacation and he brought us a new one so we could get on the road. Outstanding guy in my book.
