That works. But make sure you dont go too big and weaken the bolt.

The 6.0 guys have an advantage. the 6.4 banjo bolts fit our trucks and do the same thing as what he's talking about

Ive wondered too about this mod over the last few days. Does anyone have a link to the forums about the outcome of this mod?
Imo this mod might possibly give a quicker throttle repsponse at the bottom and high ends on a stock injecr's, without eating any extra fuel.
re: Hewitt ive learned alot about my powerstroke 7.3 and how to with his videos than anyone or any read on the net. I cant find any reason not to like his how to videos....

I know that most of you are not big fans of Mr. Hewitt but I was just on his site and watched his 7.3 High Performance Fuel System video were he drills the hole bigger on the bolts that feed fuel into the heads and I am wondering if it is worth dong? :dunno: POWERSTROKEHELP.COM - The Information Source for Ford Power Stroke Diesel Owners
ive always heard good chit about him.course i cant read all that well.why? what has he said that is bad? i watched his vids and took some advice from it,this was when i was first gettin into the tech side of psd's.

That is just bad. We know him personally and to say he is a nice guy is an understatment. My FICM took a dump on me the day before we left on vacation and he brought us a new one so we could get on the road. Outstanding guy in my book. :thumb:

Its his upgrades that seem well bad. But his tech advice is pretty good. Sometimes a little over the top and unnecessary he seems to want you to worry to much that is what I have noticed.

I have never meet the guy but I just am not fond of the videos.

This is a PERFECT example of why not to listen to to this "bumpkin" :)

In his uneducated eye, he sees a 1/4" line go to 1/8th" holes.... BUT there are 4 holes!!!!!

FOUR 1/8th" HOLES WILL FLOW EVERYTHING a 1/4" hole can deliver!

Think of the work it's going to be to do this useless mod. He has you spending Hours getting the bolts out (do you really think Fords engineers wouldn't have chosen to use bigger holes in that bolt if there was Any possibility it would restrict fuel delivery?) for ABSOLUTELY NO REASON :(

I love lots of his videos, Very educational, but the guys just So Far OFF on So Much of the Stupid $hit he says......

Did you see the one where he has you heat your hub studs Cherry Red to get them out? You think this hick ever heard of metallurgy & heat treating?

Watch the videos, but NEVER take ANYTHING he says as fact without double checking elsewhere....

Bill The BOOB ;)
