Updated turbo oil feed line

I have an '03 6.0 and from what I've read, to use the updated turbo oil feed line, I have to replace the oil cooler cover. So I was wondering if it's worth hunting down a oil cooler cover to use this line because I'm having a hard time even finding one. If so, where would I find one? Thanks

Actually, you may or may not need that oil cooler cover. The whole thing hinges on what cover is on your truck now.
Go out and pop the hood of your truck. Look at the connecting point for the turbo oil supply line at the oil cooler cover. Does it appear that there is a nut on the oil supply line at the oil cooler cover? Like the one pictured below?



If it looks like that pic, YES, you will need to replace your oil cooler cover to use the updated turbo oil supply line.
If it looks differently, with a collar on the line and that collar has a bolt going through it into the cooler cover, you will NOT need a new cover.

I checked mine and it does have the STC fitting. So, where can you buy just the cover, hopefully for a decent price?

The STC fitting is on the High Pressure Oil Pump, below the HPOP cover. You would not be able to see it without disassembly.
What the picture above shows is the connecting point of the oil cooler cover to the turbo oil supply line on an early 03 engine.
If you have the same connection as pictured above, and you want to update your turbo oil supply line, you would need to replace the oil cooler cover. To do that you should just go ahead and purchase the whole oil cooler with the cover as an assembly. It would not make sense to buy the oil cooler cover to replace it solely for the purpose of updating the turbo oil line. Update the cover when you replace the oil cooler and get the turbo oil supply line update at the same time.
I think the cover adds somewhere around 150 bucks to the oil cooler (which is 213.84 @ Tousley Ford).

Well, the oil cooler was just replaced maybe 20,000 miles ago when the new heads and ARP head studs were installed so I really don't see a reason to replace it. What is the part number for just the cover? I can't seem to find it on Tousley's website. Thanks!

They won't have that part listed separately. You would have to call them about it (800) 328-9552.

Call Mike R. at Tousley, 800 328 9552, and ask for part # 3c3z6881ca. They call it an adaptor kit for the turbo oil feed, just got mine yesterday paid 170.50, and it comes with the new oil cooler cover and updated feed line and o rings.

So i bought a new oil cooler and cover for my 03 because i plan on doing head studs here shortly, the cover didnt come with the oil filter assembly attached so do i need to still buy 3C3Z-6881-CA to adapt over to this turbo line?
