CP4 “disaster prevention kit”

So this is my dilemma, I just bought a brand new 2019 f250 and i plan to keep this truck till the frame rusts through. Coming from older Cummins I’m new to the cp4. My current plans are fass titanium for obvious reasons but this is where I need advice. S&S diesel makes a cp4 “disaster prevention kit” or more properly named some type of bypass. For the 350 bucks I feel like this is a no brainer insurance policy but I can’t find any other major brands with something similar or any posts on any forms. Is this thing just a fluke or will it actually save the rest of the fuel system if the cp4 dies. Side note, any other tribal knowledge specific to the 6.7 PS to keep these things going and running like a top would be appreciated other than the normal preventative maintenance. Thanks

I'm thinking the Achilles heel is the lubricity of diesel fuel. So I treat with Opti-Lube XL at 1oz to 10 gallons.

Time will tell...

The fuel pump on the newer truck is not a CP4.

You would be correct, I just re-read there kit and since the road sodas wore off I see that it is 2011-2017 6.7 which in fact doesn’t include the new 2019 lol my apologies thank you buddy. (In a car pool for the commute to this job so I wasn’t driving just to be clear)

Ya I would run a good fuel treatment in every fill up and drain your separator regularly(free and cheap insurance to do) and just drive it!

So I wanted to know more about this cp4 pump issue. I have been researching it, and learning alot. I'm looking at a 2017 or newer f350. Does the 17+ still have the same setup?? Did Ford come out with a new setup to prevent this issue????? I dont seem to be able to find any issues with the 2017+ fuel systems... Can someone shine some light for me. Thanks so much!

Run a fuel additive, add a filter setup, buy fuel from high use pumps.

Sootie, so the 2016 and older had the cp4? And the newer ones had the 4.2?? What did Ford improve on the newer one? Any cases of failure on the 4.2s??

I know in the 15+ pumps got a bump in volume I think it flows 9% more than the 11-14s, but I’m pretty sure it’s the same pump other than that, I think the bigger issue is in the first few years they came out people read that they were made to run biodiesel and made to run the horrible ULSD we are fed these days so most didn’t use additives or drain there separators. Now i agree ford could have setup there system a bit better but people need to realize climbing under there truck for 1min to drain a small amount of fuel to make sure there’s no water in it goes leaps and bounds to save your fuel system and wallet. A lot of people have said “I shouldn’t have to lay under my brand new 70k truck” but guess what you do and if that’s to much for some then they shouldn’t own a diesel IMO buy a gasser. Buying fuel from higher turnover stations and reputable stations also helps as they “typically” have fresher fuel and hopefully maintain there underground tanks. But a good additive and a weekly,bi-weekly or monthly drain will save you a ton depending on your driving habits.
