Banjo Fittings

So my 6.4 banjo fittings and fuel spring kit came in today so If figured I go to my mechanic and see how much he'd charge. Now take in consideration the mechanic I go to is a Ford mechanic and doesn't know zoodad mods or ccv mods, or anything like that. He only knows factory stuff. With that saying I showed him the 6.4 bolts and told him I'd like to put them in. Obviously he said why and I went on to explain bigger and they don't have the check valve. He then went into explaining why the check valve was there. Now I'm no mechanic and I only retained only so much what he was saying so pardon my ignorance. He said the check valve was there because of the injector pulse that is sent out from the injectors or something like that. My question is by not having this check valve in place is there the potential to do any harm? He also went into saying yes the 6.4 banjo bolt is a bit bigger, but no so much that it'll do anything.

And oh yea, he only wants $20 to put the fuel spring kit in.

What do you all think?

Also here are the bolts I got.

yes those are them, and well what he said is incorrect, those check valves only give you restriction, the 6,4 bolts gives much better fuel flow and helps maintain constant fuel pressure.

This is a good read on the banjo bolts. It goes both ways, some say they are worth it and others don't...

I hate you.

My mechanic wants to charge me two and a half hours labor for the 6.4 banjos and the FPR kit.

Yea he's pretty decent on his prices. He said he could put the spring kit in 30 minutes and the bolts probably in another hour. He said the one on of the sides is a pain, I think he said passenger? Either way I'm not complaining. The only thing bad is like I said he doesn't really know performance stuff, only stock, so when I try and talk to him about egr deletes, tuners, or whatever he kind of gives me the deer in the headlight look...haha.
