Does the FPR spring upgrade apply to all 6.0's? I don't have a fuel pressure gauge so I'm not sure what pressures I'm running. I have a 2007 F250. Just want to make sure I need it before throwing money at it. Thanks!

Yeah I read that, thanks. I just wasn't sure if ford fixed it by 2007 or not. From what I'm seeing it doesn't look like it.

Yes. It is more of a preventative measure, but the only way to know for sure is to hook up a gauge.

Okay got a question about the banjo bolts. I undertand how they would flow better than the old ones with the check valve, but why do the old ones have the valve in them anyway? International must have put it there for a reason, doesn't the valve keep fuel at the injectors when the engine is shut off?

I would like to do them but this has been bugging me for a while, which kept me from buying a set. Just a thought that's all.

I've seen something on here before about the check valve... They apparently thought that the waves from the injectors might line up and create a big wave. They guy said the only way he could wrap his brain around it (and for me too) is that, get a kick board and go in a pool. Go in and kick your legs. Look behind you occasionally the waves will line up and distorted it a bit. Now put a board(check valve) under you. Kick in the water, you notice that the waves no longer line up anymore..

Course I may not remember right, but I think that is what he said. He also said that he heard this from someone eles and may still be wrong.. But for me it makes sense and has really bothered much since, still wonder why though. No one eles has it in there engines..

The filter in the fuel bowl will also stop the waves.
Or you can look at it this way...If the check valves were so valuable to the system then why would they not have them for the 6.4 also?

Plus this mod goes along way back, I think by now if there was a problem we would have known about it by now. There are many forums where people have done this mod with only positive results.
