6.7L Powerstroke Disaster Prevention Kit

This popped up in my FB. Seems like it may be a good idea. Any thoughts?

I'm going to move this to the 6.7L forum since it's engine-specific, and you will probably get some better input down there. Their explanation sort of makes sense, but I'd be curious to see some real-world examples of this successfully preventing injector and line replacement.

$360 plus 4 hours labor would be cheap if it saves the injectors, but I don't think is is a common enough failure to justify.

Seems like a good idea for 11-14 trucks, in 2015 and higher the failed fuel pump roller was fixed although the pump designation was not, still the CP4.2 with a larger bore and improved roller on the lifter. Using a good lubricity additive to your fuel will greatly decrease fuel pump, injector failure rates.

The 2015 CP4 pump change was a higher lift cam to increase volume. No other changes were made.

My thoughts is this a guarantee to void your warranty if you were to have a HPFP failure.

Like you had any to begin with. They'll blame it on water in fuel and you'll pay either way, or make a claim on your insurance

My diesel shop tried to get me to spring for one of these. A net search didnt reveal it happening much. I talked to the service guy at the dealer. The only issues he has seen are from bad fuel or people putting gas in the truck or DEF in the wrong hole

A bosch fuel pump on a ford engine. Aluminum housing with steel rollers.(pump) Hmmm. The only thing lubing those rollers against the aluminum is today's diesel fuel. Hmmm.
ok, I got nothing. The boy that does all the work on my truck said if anybody does a mode to their truck, putting on the DPK should be the first. Did it! As posted earlier 8k to replace the whole system. That's a low estimate! If you have comprehensive on the insurance your good. But still!
A bosch pump. Man!
Get a kit.

I stop at my local dealer as they have a “Truck center” and I talk to the diesel mechanic whenever I can.He told me the same thing.Guys putting gas or DEF in the tank is the only reason he see HPFP failures.

I'm just curious why this is surprising to you. Bosch has been a Tier 1 OEM supplier to Ford and just about everyone else for decades now. Are they not supposed to use a Bosch pump?

The 6.4L PSD used a Siemens injection system.
