    Just curious if anyone has installed one of these? I recently found out about them and my buddy talked to a diesel mechanic at work that highly recommended one. I ended up ordering an S&S kit and it should be here in the next couple of days.

    I plan on getting one of these when my warranty runs out.

    If I had known about them I'd already have one installed. I was supposed to go out of town this weekend, but plans have changed. So I might install the kit instead. It seems nice with an extra filter and all factory connections ready to go. I'm guessing the hard part will be pulling all the intake stuff off to get to the pump.[​IMG]

    I installed this yesterday. Overall it wasn't too bad. I think it was 4 hours start to finish. Not having to cut lines was nice. I do plan on getting some more loom to protect some of the hoses. It was nice to see my metering valve didn't show any signs of pump failure yet.

    Questions, What is the failure rate of the CP4 pump? What is the cause of the failure? and Is there any TSB on this?

    I honestly couldn't tell you a failure rate. When my buddy talked to the mechanic at work he was on his 4th truck within 6 months. Granted they're government trucks that aren't treated well. But the kit was $400. To replace the fuel system is $8000 just in parts. So I went with the plan to get ahead of it.

    There's something with the lifters in the pump. The tolerances are tight so the lifters eventually grind into the bores. I've seen a couple reports where the lifters actually turned sideways. Being that they have rollers that was very bad. Running some kind of additive in the fuel is supposed to help.

    Fords knows, but there's no TSB on it.
