If you aren't confident in what he's telling you then you have the wrong guy working on it. OTOH, nobody can change what you need.

Other than that, not much help the internet can be.

|ChrisSki||Did the diesel mechanic have hands on the truck? I'm wondering if something like "The ICP could cause the problem changed to the ICP caused the problem," as it was passed from person to person. I could say what I think it is with what you said, but that is just a guess, although there may be a 10% chance I get it right. These things are super expensive to fix, so need to get it correct.|

Well, for one you cannot be bulletproof with just heads and studs.
Two, you clearly have a leak and that pressure is needed to start.
Its not uncommon for the orings to be pinched or ripped on install, but in reality if the rail is leaking then it needs to be replaced.
Not sure what else you want to hear... @fordsvtparts can give you a great price on the parts.

How many miles do you have on it? Those wavy oil rails typically don't develop leaks in the rail plugs (even the nipple cup leaks aren't all that common). Even if they do leak in some of the rail plugs, you can take them to a hydraulic shop and get o-rings for them. Now, the dummy plugs and the standpipes do leak. Change them out to the updated parts, but the small plugs and end plug do not typically leak.
If you are dead set on a new rail, the part number is:
It is $588 at AutoNation White Bear Lake.
So you can get two for $1280
Also I wanted to give Mike ( @fordsvtparts ) a "shout-out" once again! He helped me w/ some obscure part numbers on VERY short notice! Thanks Mike!!!
Each "late 04 and up wavy rail" has 4 end caps, two Accoustic Wave Attenuation (AWA) plugs (small one on the wavy rail component, larger one on the straight rail component), and two miscellaneous plugs by the AWA. One of these is on the side of the wavy rail and the smaller plug is at a 45 degree angle (pointing up) on the side of the wavy rail. Lastly, the drivers side (left) rail has a plug where the ICP sensor is located on the passenger side (right) rail.
picture 41 in the link below:
note - The AWA plugs are on the bottom of the oil rail and in the middle.

High Pressure Oil Rail
ok so i have a 2006 6.0. about a month ago i took the engine out and did ARP headstuds, ARP connecting rods, EGR delete. once i put it all back together the truck ran fine. a week later i was towing my 4 seater can am to my ranch and all of the sudden the truck stalled. i tried starting the truck again and it just wouldnt start. i had to get the truck towed home. my dad owns a diesel shop and his diesel mechanic told me that the IPC sensor had something in it causing the truck to stall and not start back up. he also told me that my high pressure oil rails were leaking. i bought the new HPOR nipples and O rings as well as the injector rings. but once those parts came in he told me i need entirely new oil rails because the rail itself was leaking. how do i get these oil rails. and is there any way that i dont have to pay navistar/ ford 1000$ for one?
