So my buddy with a 19’ F250 with a 6.7 was telling me about an upgrade for the cold pipe. I found some research that earlier power stroke would blow the cold pipe under heavy loads. We have the Gen 3 power stroke but Ford didn’t change the cold pipe. My buddy told me about SPE Diesel who has a stronger cold pipe kit for $250. I searched the forums but couldn’t find any threads about it. So is it worth it to switch to a stronger cold pipe? Max towing for me would be maybe 10k lbs.... Here is the link to the pipe. What does everyone think?

Eh...seems like a gimmicky thing but that's not to say this isn't an upgrade vs some cheap plastic. If you're really pushing boost and often it may be a worthwhile upgrade. I don't think it's a necessary thing though. I'm ignorant to the diesel turbo world, but not to turbocharged vehicle world. Maybe Ford's are notorious for cheap "cold pipes" (thought it was a charge pipe or intercooler pipe). Seems like it only matters depending upon what your risk tolerance is...do you think yours will burst anytime soon?

I honestly don't think you have much to worry about. I don't think it'll burst anytime soon. It's a marketing ploy, unless like I said Ford is notorious for making that part less than adequate...I don't know that, I assume it's fine.

This popped up on my YouTube feed this morning and then I come here and see this thread. Coincidence?

After my buddy told me about the cold pipe, I saw this video when I was researching the topic.
