I have a leak here until the engine is warm. New purchase. TSD in Texas said my receipt is no good because truck switched Owners. I asked about a manufacturer warranty on the sinister delete. Just got a bad attitude towards me so I hung up.

The man has fass fuel 150gph pump and filters. All was done at the shop, but I see the factory filter is still on the side of the engine. The purpose of this on my old 7.3 was to be able to do a fuel bowl delete to open everything up so it was better and looked better. I’d like for this truck to not have that and be open. I’ve not checked if the factory bowl has a filter. I’m sure it does, just seems like more restriction and not necessarily needed. I say this because I wanted to change and fill the fass filter with seafoam, run it into the injectors, sit 15-20 minutes and blow it out. I did this on my tractor, my old 7.3 and it always ran better afterwards. The man i purchased the truck from told me “he didn’t believe or like injector cleaners” truck has 117k miles 2012 model. He didn’t really drive it. The fass fuel sump. The fuel gauge wasn’t reading right as it was empty and only held 25 gallons I read the mega cab hold 34 gallons I believe. The more I run the truck the better but imo needs seafoam ran through new filters and injectors and a good ratio mixed in the fuel tank.

Thank you. I wish this part that is leaking would’ve been a flexible braided line. The exhaust vent screw by the leak. I’m not sure what that is for.

You can do what you want with seafoam in the front fuel filter. It’s your money, but don’t put it in your fuel tank.
If you want water emulsion in your fuel and send it through your HPCR and injectors then have at it.
It’s not a 7.3 or a tractor.

I saw this but it maybe it’s on A newer model. I see why everyone was building on these inline Diesels. The V shape diesels are just hard to work on. I’ll miss my 7.3 didn’t want to get rid of it but a family member needed it. Currently I’m seeing that I should take delete the heater grid and clean that stuff up.Get that fuel bowl out of there. Less junk in the way the better. Mine was deleted around 55k… motor has pretty much no blow by. I don’t like the transmission tuning. I feel it shifts over 3-4th gear quick and would like all the gears to run through. Pretty sure that’s TDS tuning tho.
Why would you need to remove the grid htr?
As for the EGR bypass, I would just get rid of it and have no o-rings to deal with it. I would put my effort there.
