There are no cons. Low fuel pressure at WOT kills injectors plain and simple. Tie a rope to the top rad hose to pull it out of the way a little, disconnect the intercooler outlet at the elbow and rotate it up out of the way, grab a #27 Torx. It'll take you 15 minutes tops to put it in.

SCT, no studs...yet, Dual OEM intake air filter housings, Banks intercooler & intake elbow, Banks exhaust syatem, Windrunner ported intake manifold, Bullet Proof Diesel remote oil cooler & thermostat, AirDog2 (plus a couple spares), Power steering filter (Amsoil dual-bypass), MagTec deep ATF pan, Electric oil pre-lub pump, Dakota Digital gauges.

Re: blue spring

Just do it, and 6.4 banjo's at the same time. From the dealership I paid like 80 bucks for the blue spring kit, banjo's, and washers for my mamma's 6.0 excursion lol

Re: blue spring

Small inexpensive bolts and washers. Improves fuel flow. Cheap insurance for injectors. Both the bolts and spring mod are good

Re: blue spring

While your doing it its better to have new gaskets and all. Unless you are that tight on your spending.

Don't need a new housing. Just undo the bolts replace the gasket and spring. If you do it like I do you don't need to touch the fuel lines which are easily twisted.
