XDP Duramax PCV/Crankcase Breather Re-Route Fittings Install


Over time, the factory PCV system on the 04.5-10 6.6L Duramax can contaminate your intake system, intercooler and turbocharger with oil. Those looking to avoid this contamination can use our (XD183) PCV/Crankcase Breather Re-Route Fittings to re-route your crankcase breather to a location or catch can of your choice.

Step 1: Disconnect Batteries

Step 2: Locate your OE resonator under your hood.

Step 3: Remove all mounting screws/fasteners holding the resonator in place. Using a rocking motion, lift and remove the resonator plenum from the intake tube.

Step 4: Follow the PCV tube until you reach the valve cover and bolts on both the Passenger and Driver side. Remove the bolts mounting the crossover tube onto the valve covers. Pull the tube up out of the ports. Save the bolts.

Step 5: Unclip the PCV tube from the intake using pliers to loosen the clamp. Disconnect the PCV line from the intake tube and remove from the vehicle. You will have to plug/cap this open area of the intake. (XDP offers the XDP Billet PCV Re-Route Plug XD185 for a perfect fit!)

Step 6: Using clean motor oil, lubricate the O-rings on the PCV/Crankcase Breather Re-Route Fittings.

Step 7: Install the fittings into both valve covers using the bolts you saved from Step 4.

Step 8: You now can re-route your PCV to a location or catch can of your choice using 5/8″ heater hose. (Hose not included)

icon_1yearwarrantyXDP’s VP44 Injection Pumps are remanufactured using 100% Genuine Bosch parts. All remanufactured XDP VP44 Injection Pumps are warranted to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of twelve (12) months from the date of purchase.

Why did my VP44 Injection Pump Fail?

Common Failures:

  • Fuel Delivery (Lack of fuel pressure from the lift pump will starve the VP44 of the fuel it requires to be cooled and lubricated. This heat and lack of lubrication, most often, leads to either a pump failure internally or electronically.)
  • Fuel Contamination (Corrosion of your pump internals, caused by contaminated fuel or the use of alternative fuels, will cause drivability issues and lead to a failure of the pump.)
    • Always purchase fuel from trusted sources and run a high quality fuel additive, such as XDP’s Diesel Power Plus, to help avoid contamination issues.
  • Electrical Failure (Excessive heat and heat cycles over time will cause the electrical component on top of the VP44 to fail.)
    • There is little you can do to avoid the heat of the engine, but our best recommendation is to run a good aftermarket lift pump that provides the best flow of fuel to keep the pump cool.
  • Seized Rotor (Lack of lubrication from either running the pump out of fuel or the lower sulfur diesel fuel being used today.)
    • Running a high quality fuel additive, such as XDP’s Diesel Power Plus, increases fuel lubricity and helps extend injection pump and fuel system life.

XDP Ford 6.7L Coolant Filtration System

The XDP 6.7L Coolant Filtration System (Part Number: XD192) is an excellent add-on for any stock or modified 2011-2015 Ford 6.7L Powerstroke. The 6.7L’s primary cooling system is responsible for cooling the most vital components on your engine, which includes your engine block, cylinder heads, oil cooler, turbocharger, and EGR cooler. Because of the cast engine design, contaminants such as casting sand and sediment are commonly left over after the engine is manufactured. Keeping your cooling system free from such debris is crucial to the life and performance of your engine.

The XDP Coolant Filtration System comes with everything needed for installation. This system is built around an easy to find parts store filter and can be installed easily with your basic hand tools. No modifications or cutting of your factory hoses required!


Step 1: Remove the driver side coolant overflow tank cap.


Step 2: Drain approximately 3 gallons of coolant from the primary cooling system. (This coolant drain is located on the bottom, driver side, of the radiator.)



Step 3: Using the supplied thread seal tape, go over all of your threads to ensure the kit has a proper seal.

Step 4: Attach the mounting bracket to the XDP filter base using the supplied hardware.


Step 5: Install the supply hose, return hose and hex plug into the XDP filter. The hex plug is threaded into the side of the filter base closest to the “X” in the logo. The supply hose, with the 90° fitting, threads into the front of the filter base below the “XDP” logo. The return hose, with the tee fitting, is threaded into the side of the filter base closest to the “P” in our logo.

Step 6: Install the fully assembled filter base to the driver side cowl where the ground strap is located. Remove the factory bolt and ground strap. Mount the base using the same factory bolt, supplied lock washer and nut. Be sure that the ground strap is reattached. xd192_xdp_10_web


Step 7: Thread the aluminum tube into the hex block and tighten.


Step 8: Using a 19mm deep socket, remove the Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) DSC_4944sensor from the coolant crossover. The sensor is located on the driver side of the engine in the coolant crossover. You will find the sensor above the coolant pump and next to the thermostat housing. XD192 - Sensor Location


Step 9: Thread the hex tube assembly into the area the ECT was located. Using a wrench, tighten the assembly until one of the three open ports is facing directly towards the rear of the truck.DSC_4947


Step 10: From the front of the truck, thread the hex plug into the opening facing the rear, thread the barbed fitting into the opening on left and thread the ECT sensor into the opening on the right. Reconnect the ECT sensor wiring.DSC_4981

Step 11: Connect the supply hose, the line from the front of the filter base, to the open barbed fitting on the hex block. Secure the line using one of the supplied hose clamps.


Step 12: Route the return hose from the filter base to the front of the overflow tank. Remove the factory hose from the tank and insert the tee fitting into the factory hose using the factory clamp. Install the supplied short section of coolant hose in-between the tee fitting and the tank using the supplied hose clamps.


Step 13: Lubricate the seal and install the Donaldson P554685 Coolant Filter onto the filter base.

Step 14: Refill the coolant system back to Ford Specifications.

Step 15: Inspect for any leaks and top off the coolant as needed.

XDP’s Ford 6.0L Basic EGR Delete Installation

XD186The Ford 6.0L PowerStroke’s relationship with its EGR system often doesn’t lead to a happy ending. Many owners would agree that the EGR system was one of, if not the first concerns they had after purchasing their 6.0L. Due to the failing reputation associated with the EGR systems, XDP offers multiple types of EGR Deletes for this application. Our newest addition is the XDP 6.0L Basic EGR Delete Kit with Coolant Block-Off Plate (Part Number: XD186).

Using the same proven design as our standard EGR Delete Kit, the Basic EGR Delete is built with ease of install and value in mind. The specially designed Up-Pipe Block-Off Plate simply clamps in place to block the cooler connection of your factory up-pipe. This saves time, money and the hassle of working between the firewall when removing/replacing the factory passenger side up-pipe.
