ELC. Banjos. FPS kit. CHECK.

Well I spent all afternoon yesterday doing it but its all done now. Went ahead and flushed the system and added Zerex ELC and a dieselsite coolant filter. While I had to coolant out I removed some of the hoses to get to the hard banjo bolt and add the new blue fuel pressure spring. Quiet the afternoon, but I'm glad its all done now. Feels good to do it all yourselft too

The FPR kit and banjos cost me $61.58 TMD from Tousley

I'm doing the same thing as the OP, plus installing a full BPD kit on my 6,0 in the coming weeks

Did you notice any performace after the addition of the FPR spring? I have no idea what kind of fuel pressue mine has and I am looking into doing the spring...just hope there is a little better responsiveness from it..

doubt you'll notice any responsiveness from anything other than your wallet. the fpr upgrade is just a preventaive maintenance thing as low fuel pressure kills your injectors.

I thought I saw a guy list on here that he noticed improvement when he did the spring, but I think he might have done other stuff at same time... Just wishing for power improvement without deleting the bank account... I will go back to sleep

You see a big difference on 7.3s the OBS ones with the spring because they respond well to high pressure. The 6.0 gets a little bit but not really unless it is worn out.

I got the banjo bolts and FPS kit from powerstrokeshop.com and as far as improvements from them it seems like it idles a bit quiter but that just maybe in my head, who know. I know I would rather do that then replace injectors though.
