My suggestion would be to spend the money to do it right. I have an '05 that I ordered from Ford. At 220,000 last summer I had the hot start issue. Other than an EGR delete truck was 100% stock.
Decided to go in deep:
Full BPD system
Head studs
Valve job
Water pump
Fan clutch
OEM Injectors
Y Pipes
All of the belts hoses and such
If you have the ability to remove the cab, the work is not difficult.
I could absolutely not be happier with the outcome.
My goal was reliability with whatever performance upgrades came without sacrificing reliability.
From my perspective, I only wanted to do this ONCE!
