Real bummer of a story.
So, finally ordered and received my Black Maxx, 5" Flo-Pro, S&B intake, and KEM tuning card. Real excited to finally get rid of the DPF so I figured I'd changed the oil and oil/fuel filters to get a fresh start for the new parts.
This is where is gets ugly...I notice oil on the bell housing and pan. To shorten the story...2 trips to the dealer and verdict is bedplate. It'll be a couple weeks before they can get the truck in and another week to fix. Talk about crap timing but thank god for a warranty.
I'm curious what the repair procedure is for this? It really doesn't impact the top half of the engine but I wonder what Ford procedure is. Mainly, I'd love to hear that the heads have to come off. I would definitely have studs installed in place of the stock bolts. Seems like such a waste of a cab off procedure not to have it done.
