Bill Hewitt's Powerstroke Help?

Is this place any good? He's preaching about using Ford Gold and I always ppl saying it's sh*t and to use CAT ELC-1 instead....but anyways....he seems very knowledgeable and opinionated.

He has this Engine Damage Avoidance System (EDAS) that is suppose to warn when your coolant pressure surpasses 16psi to avoid any damage internally. Is this worth anything? It's $250.00.

Any input would be great. I've been watching his videos this morning. Is he correct on using the Ford Motorcraft brand filters and stuff? That what I use anyway...just wanna make sure its doing the job for the price! haha!

This guy is a sales man of the worst kind. I will grant you that he is opinionated but the knowledgeable is questionable. The Ford gold is the number one cause of 6.0 problems, if guys stoped using it he would sell a lot less of his rip off product.

He has this Engine Damage Avoidance System (EDAS) that is suppose to warn when your coolant pressure surpasses 16psi to avoid any damage internally. Is this worth anything? It's $250.00.

I wouldn't give you 20 bucks for his useless product. For less than $200 you can get a Scan-gauge II and that will tell you a lot more than his POS device. By the time the coolant is over pressurised the "damage" is done. My EGR cooler went bad and the only sign was that the engine was consuming coolant at a slow rate. The best plan is to delete your EGR cooler if you can. If you must keep it get one from Bullet Proof Diesel.
Get a SGII and watch your EOT vs ECT delta. to see if your oil cooler is getting clogged and needs replaced. Make sure you flush the system with restore and refill with a good CAT - ELC.


Any input would be great. I've been watching his videos this morning. Is he correct on using the Ford Motorcraft brand filters and stuff? That what I use anyway...just wanna make sure its doing the job for the price! haha!

For sure, stick with Motor Craft filters and the OEM filter caps.



Good luck with your new Ford!

Bill Hewitt is a tool and Powerstroke Help needs serious help. Seriously, stay far away from that idiot. His EDAS is a joke and a waste of money. Get yourself an Edge Insight or some gauges to monitor your engine like everyone with any sense should do and you will know what's up long before that stupid EDAS ever has a clue.
