6.0 Powerstroke bulletproof kit
I wanted to talk a little bit about bulletproofing your 6.0 and you know if you’re looking at a 6.0 how to tell if it was bullet-proofed and I’ll go a little bit more into that as well but the term bulletproof was actually a marketing term buy bulletproof diesel and technically to say your truck has been bulletproof.
You have to be running bulletproof diesel parts bulletproof diesel water pump Hickam arp head studs the air to oil cooler and their EGR cooler and those five things allow you to say that your truck has been bullet-proofed.
Now going all-out with bulletproof diesel products is expensive and not 100% necessary just go to their site and take a look at their prices good quality parts but really expensive so what most people mean when they say their truck is bulletproof is that they mean it’s been studded with new head gaskets and perhaps an EGR delete or an EGR upgrade or an EGR plug where they actually weld the port.
where the EGR takes in exhaust gases they weld that shut so it looks stuck but there’s no more flow of exhaust gases into the intake manifold now really
In my opinion, all you need for a reliable truck is to make sure your victim is within spec you know 46 to 48 volts head studs with new head gaskets om or perhaps fel-pro and oring the heads while you have it out may as well and an EGR delete or upgrade
The term bulletproof to a lot of people is just head studs head gasket and maybe an EGR delete and really that’s all you need for a super reliable setup as long as your victim is within spec your oil and coolant temperatures are within fifteen degrees maximum
Bulletproof Diesel’s latest definition is to replace 4 out of 5 of the following…
- Bulletproof Remote Oil Cooler
- Bulletproof EGR Cooler
- Bulletproof Water Pump
- Bulletproof FICM
- ARP Head Studs

HOW DOES THIS MAKE MY 6.0 “Bulletproof”?
–ARP Studs– The 6.0 uses torque to yield head bolts that are meant to stretch a certain amount when torqued. Over time heat and pressure from the engine causes these head bolts to stretch beyond their stretch limit causing head gasket failure. The ARP studs are not torqued to yield and do not stretch which solves the 6.0 head gasket problem.
–Fuel Pressure– The injectors in the 6.0 require a minimum of 45psi to operate correctly, anything below that can cause injector damage and failure. This Ford OEM Fuel Pressure Update Kit raises the factory fuel pressure from a low 50psi to a safe 65psi. This will extend the life of the 6.0 injectors.
–EGR– The EGR system recycles exhaust from the engine back into the intake. Before it is recycled back it is cooled in the EGR cooler. This cooler may leak engine antifreeze into the engine causing engine damage such as hydro-locking. The EGR delete removes the coolers and blocks exhaust from being recycled back into the intake. The up-pipe allows exhaust to flow to the turbo faster and smoother.
-Oil Cooler- The factory oil cooler in the 6.0 can become plugged over time and can also leak coolant into your oil. Using the Updated Oil cooler will improve oil cooling ability and stop coolant from leaking into your oil.
–STC Fitting– The STC (Snap To Connect) fitting is located on the HPOP (High-Pressure Oil Pump). This fitting snaps together with an o-ring sealing it. The fitting directs pressurized oil to the injectors for them to operate. The o-ring in this fitting fails to cause low oil pressure to the injectors and will stall the engine. It will also cause the engine to not start. The updated STC fitting is one solid piece and eliminates the o-ring failure problem.
–Stand Pipes & D Plugs– The standpipes in the 6.0 carry oil from the HPOP (High-Pressure Oil Pump) discharge tube up to the oil rail located on top of the head under the valve cover. This oil rail feeds the injectors pressurized oil to allow them to operate and fire fuel into the engine. The Stand Pipes and D Plugs are sealed by small O-Rings which fail over time due to heat and pressure. When any of these O-Rings fail oil pressure is lost causing long cranking time when warm, or the engine may not start at all. The updated Stand Pipes and D Plugs have a bigger O-Ring that is also protected by a nylon washer with eliminated the O-Ring failure.
-Tuner- The tuner is required to be able to Delete the EGR without any check engine lights turning on. It will also improve performance and MPG.
