fuel line

03 6.0 195,000 egr delete, 4"exhaust turbo back, K&N air filter Now I'm installing 8 injectors from Warren Diesel, new oil cooler, blue spring kit, updated turbo drain tube. Want to upgrade turbo oil feed line, do I need to change oil cooler housing for the updated line, looks like it has a different mounting system than the stock line? Took turbo apart to inspect and clean, the ring that rotates to open/close vanes was carboned/frozen in place, would not move, vanes and compressor wheel looks good though. Removed the Y uppie to check for leaks, that is a B!@#h to get to the bolts. Oh yeah I discovered that the fuel line going to the IPR/filter housing was kinked in the first bend from housing. The line is about 12" long and looks like it plugs into a braided line, does this connection just pop apart or is it a permanent fitting/connection? Does anyone have any good living quarters plans for the engine bay, as much time as I spend under the hood I feel like I live there. LOL

first, get rid of the K&N. You only need to update the oil feed line if yours is leaking. The drain is the big one you want to replace. And no need to change the oil cooler housing.

Since you have an 03, you will need to change the oil cooler housing in order to update the turbo supply line, but its not important to update that line unless you have a leak. I agree that you should get a different filter for your intake, look at getting a universal filter element with a 4" flange diameter, and you can just replace the K&N element with one that will filter much better like AFE or S&B.
