One Turbo assembly that has 2 compressor wheels. Take a look at this: DualBoost Single Sequential Turbocharger

Question

If you do the "build your own" truck thing on the Ford web site, there is a factory installed "engine idle shutdown" that is $250 and available on the XLT. However this accessory is not available with the "Reverse Vehicle Aid Sensor". I think the "RVAS" is standard on the the Lariets and up so the "engine idle shutdown" is not abailable on a Lariet or King Ranch.

How does the Ford "Engine Idle Shutdown" work, TIME or TEMP?

Soooo....you can get an "engine idle shutdown" installed by Ford at the Factory on a Lariet? Can you order a Lariet with a "RVAS" delete and then have the "engine idle shutdow" installed at the factory?

Has any one ordered one of these things, or is one of the techs out there have some knowledge about this accessory?

After owning a 6.0 powered truck, I am all for reliability operations. I have not seen any information from the Ford guys I trust about this issue. I wonder if we may be just borrowing trouble here. I am hesitant to do anything to this truck that may haunt me later if warranty is needed.

Regards

If that was directed to me, no, I am all for reliability operations. I am just a little gunshy about adding aftermarket stuff that may later affect warranty. After the 6.0 debacle, Ford has gotten downright miserable about A/M mods.

call you dealer and ask. It's a factory option so clearly they suppport the prouct. I'm sure for a cool 1000 you can have them add one and you won't have to worry.

My understanding is Ford's engine idle shutdown is time based.
The factory setting on the 08-10 MY trucks was 5 minutes.
I read somewhere this is required for trucks purchased in CA.

I would hope BCP or SEIC would override this option though.

I don't think it's required in cali. The 5 limit max timer maybe. You can get a $1000 fine if your engine is left idling for over 5 minutes.

Is the product referenced here a factory option, dealer installed or aftermarket? I will study my manual some more on this issue because I am unsure of what Ford recommends.

the one I posted was aftermarket. But the dealer offerd one as well. Just easily double the cost since it was not added by the factory, you'd have to have the dealer install it

I read in the manual that it is recommended that a hot engine be idled for 3 to 5 minutes to allow turbo cool down.

indeed. The timer does it for you. You shut the key off, lock the doors and it keeps running until either the time (timer) or temp gets to a safe shut down temp. Depends on what model you choose.

ya, google it. Or click on the link to the bd model. Or call up banks diesel. They are the ones who will tell you exactly what you wanna know. Personally I'd go with the probe temp model. You don't always run it hard enough to need the turbo timer to keep your truck running. Why run for 5 minutes at idle when you don't need to? Waste of fuel. Get the probe and it only runs what theengine needs
