My truck liked it initially, but it drank down diesel like you wouldn't believe. So I ended up having to replace the banjo bolts with some new OEM. That's why when Clay came up with the first gen...

You made the same mistake I did back in 2008 listening to a guy by the name of Bill Hewitt. You'll need to buy some new OEM bolts to replace them.

I agree, the stock Powermax wheel leaves much to be desired. A billet wheel makes all the difference on the Powermax. I've seen it first hand and recommend the Riffraff Billet wheel over the Diesel...

My '05 excursion has an '05 engine, but the intake and a few other parts are carryover '04 parts.

Either way you're dropping the same money to make either the 7.3 or 6.0 realiable, so you never have to think or worry about anything.

You'll spend around $2500-$3000 for a good, bulletproof...

Maintenance is indeed key, mine is currently at 167K and I'm looking forward to it having 400K+ like my 7.3 Excursion does.

All you have to do is take care of it and it will take care of you.
