If they said 4 injectors without mentioning the FICM, I'd be leary until they could prove that module was running correctly and either fuel pressure or bad oil took the injectors down. Did you mean oil cooler kit instead of EGR cooler kit, that's a very common problem and is probably a legit concern. As for the BPD EGR cooler, we have techs in the 6.0L forum that count on one hand the number of failed '03 EGR coolers they've seen, so maybe you need a 2nd opinion on that one. Here's the 6.0L forum, post up the diagnosis in there and you'll get more people to judge the answer:

Which dealership? I've only used Grapevine Ford up off of 121@Texan Trail and Southwest in Weatherford, neither of them have tried to screw me yet.

wow. i'd be the first to jump on the bandwagon when someone's being taken advantaged of. i'd hate to see that. bryan is right. head on over to the 6.0 forum and i'm sure the guys in there will help u out. sorry to hear bout ur probs, pal.

i would go thru the process of elimination one by one by myself first. fuel filters can be changed by urself. the fuel pressure regulator kit (blue spring) can be installed by urself too. u just gotta have patience. i would also check ur ICP sensor to make sure it aint soaked in oil.

did u update ur stc fitting? it may also be ur standpipes and dummy plugs. there are updated versions of those things. only reason why i mentioned these things is cos our engines rely on high pressure oil system. hence, the high pressure oil system components have to be in tip-top condition.

sorry, just trying to cover the bases. i may be wrong, but then again, the senior guys in the 6.0 forum will correct me if i'm barking up the wrong tree.

If you need a second opinion call Eric @ 817.240.7286 and tell him Brien sent you. His prices are cheaper than anywhere i've found and he works out of Crowley. Good dude..
