Whatever floats your boat. Not really a necessary item imo

Just be careful what you put in the tank.

The s&s kit is very nice and well made. I’ve installed several. As Sootie said use good fuel and change filters with motorcraft every time.

how many hours did you spent installing it?
are there any cheaper choices than S&S (bit still good quality)?

I buy my diesel fuel from a high traffic Valero gas station. plus i use fuel additive. plus i change my fuel filters twice a year. plus i drain water from tank fuel filter once a month. plus i have a very conservative driving (never any brutal accelerations, try not to exceed 1,500 RPM, do little warm up before driving) but was told the CP4 might still break. my truck has 140,000 miles. i bought it when it had 106,000 miles and i don't know if previous owners took care of it or not. i just can't afford $10,000 in repair for changing the complete fuel system if this happens to break. I would feel more comfortable doing it.

I'd suggest you sell your truck to a real man.....he deserves it more than you.

It’s good to try to take care of stuff, but with that driving style you’re doing more harm to the emissions system than you are good to the rest of the truck.

Its a 6.7l V8, not a C15 Cat, some rpm is definitely not going to hurt it and some hard accelation every so often is a good thing. You're not saving anything by driving it the way you are. If you're that worried, I'd suggest buying a gas engine.

Idling, low rpm driving, etc keep heat much lower in the combustion and exhaust level which increases soot loading.
Soot loading contributes to more frequent regens, lower fuel mileage, and shorter emissions equipment life span.
