6.7L Ford Powerstroke "Disaster Prevention Kit"

As one of those CP4 failures I am very interested in this kit and it definitely makes sense.

I got lucky and my Ford dealer ponied up a good penny when they missed a faulty valve that caused the CP4 failure the next day. Still cost me about $3k for repairs initial was $11k.

Edit: Does anyone here currently run one of these kits? I'm considering one but would love to hear others experience with this kit or another similar to it.

Thumbs down Disaster Kit

I'm really curious about this... I had the disaster occur back in Oct 2017.... $9,000.00 repair.... had 150,000 miles on my truck... it's a damn shame that Ford allows this kind of crap to occur - pisses me off to no end.... I called Ford Motor Co and got nothing out of them, but registered a complaint, multiple times.. A buddy of mine had the same issue just 3 weeks ago while he was traveling... $9,000.00 at 158,000 miles.... and another buddy of mine has a 2015 and wants to do whatever it takes to keep this from happening to his... and I don't blame him!

So does anyone know anyone that has used this kit and particularly, does anyone know anyone that uses this kit and the pump failed?

I use Optilube pretty religiously primarily for the extra lubrication for the fuel pump. When I near the 150k mile point though, instead of doing the DPK, I'll probably just throw a 2015+ HPFP in there. Figure a brand new pump ought to buy me another 150k miles, plus give me some more power to go with my 2015+ turbo.

Swapping hpfp yourself is not hard. You may need a gear puller or you can just unbolt the old hpfp and smack the old shaft and the gear will pop off. It's recommended you time the gear. You can reuse all the old hard fuel lines No problem. You'll need a new vacuum pump gasket. Best to unbolt the fan assembly and drop it, then unbolt the vacuum pump, and your there.

After talking to a couple shops and being told there are usually signs that you pump is starting to fail, I convinced myself that I didn't need one even though the PO put 158k on it w/o a fuel additive. MY 15+ have an improved CP4 and I use Stanadyne performance formual in every tank.
A few weeks ago while changing the fuel filter I noticed some shiny flakes in my fuel filter housing. Thinking I was facing a $10k repair bill, I can't express how stupid I felt for not spending the $250-$350 on a prevention kit.
I bought a CP4 bypass kit and installed it immediately. I found no shavings coming out of the pump during installation and believe what I found in my fuel filter some foil from the Stanadyne bottle tops. The shiny flakes in my fuel filter housing that I had previously found were non-ferous as they would not pick up with a magnet.
Turns out I did not have a pump failure, but I can't tell you how much I berated myself for not instaling the disaster prevention kit when I thought my pump was sending metal shavings through-out my injection system.
I would recommend it for the piece of mind. I feel a lot better having it installed.
I ordered a brand X kit off amazon for $250. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
