Any ideas what will cause the injector tip to brack off?
It happened to a 2007 dully that was all stock, with 47000 miles, and just happened to a friends truck, he had a sct on his truck. Or is this just a luck thing?
Thanks.

Water can too.its the pop corn effect.water enters a hot injector tip, rapidly turns to steam and is pressurized at the same time, pop.I've ben wondering how well the ford filter set up really removes water.

from what i heard....ford filters are the only ones that have the water barrier in the filter and the aftermarket(wix) does not.

I ran only ford filters, and I get them cheaper than other filters. Not sure what my friend was running.

dirt can also do it, it builds up in the injector tips and starts to restrict the nozzle until hydraulic pressure breaks or cracks the tip.

I highly doubt dirt will build up when 21,000 psi of fuel is blowing through the nozzle....
I have some injectors I should send you so you can study them. Dirt will build up. What do you think can cause a blown tip in the first place?

yes i did quote you saying that....cause it sounded like you stated that dirt is the only thing that will cause an injector tip to crack by saying "what else will cause a blown tip in the first place" Maybe i misinterpreted your post.
