Updated turbo oil feed and drain tubes?

Do all 6.0's have the old/inferior tubes or only certain years? How critical of an update is it?

I've never seen a factory 6.0 with the most updated drain tube, 07s are the best but they're still not quite as big as what's available now. There are 3 or 4 different drains out there.

Mid year 06 had the solid feed tube. Both can be had from international for much less than ford and it makes it a worthy upgrade

I would change them out, not a hard job 1 1/2 easy DIY. I just did that and since I was there cleaned the turbo, put a new unison ring in and new turbo hardware.

Did mine when I did my EGR delete and some other things and the drain tube is much bigger for sure. The solid feed line I updated also but the diameter is not increased I believe

Not sure what International charges but at Tousley Ford:
Drain Tube 6C3Z-9T515-A $21
Solid Feed Tube 3C3Z-9T516-A $77

Let us know how it turns out. I am looking at doing this upgrade also.
