SPE Motorsport 17+ 6.7L Powerstroke Fuel Filter System
SPE 17+ 6.7 Powerstroke Fuel Filter System
Yes, this is a completely new fuel filtration system for your truck. It replaces both factory fuel filters. The system relocates both filters under the truck directly next to each other where they belong. No more fuel mess on top of the engine when changing the top filter. Now, it's underneath.
NEXT LEVEL DESIGN
The SPE team designed the setup around some of the best filters on the market all while keeping them in the location of the factory lower fuel filter (DFCM). SPE utilizes CAT 256-8753 for the water and fuel separator filter. This filter has the same 10-micron rating as the factory filter but out-flows the factory unit by over 150 gallons per hour while still being efficient.
When your factory filtration system trips the water and fuel sensor light on the dash it's usually too late because it has already made its way into the water separator and possibly further. SPE has tried to remedy this by developing a pre-chamber that the factory sensor goes in prior to the water and fuel separator filter. This pre-chamber gives the system a better chance of tripping the "water in fuel" light before it even hits the main water separator filter. There's an additional drain valve on the pre-chamber, as well, for service.
For the main filter side, SPE uses the CAT 1R0749 as the fuel filter which is 2 microns as opposed to the 4-micron factory filter, adding 3 times more filter area/volume and flow. The filter sizing and type were determined not only by filtration but also efficiency at high volumes of fuel flow for performance applications. This is something that should not be overlooked when your truck is making extra power. Now that the top filter is under the truck SPE provides a Fuel manifold to go in place of the stock filter. Utilizes all the factory lines and connections. Zero cutting or modifying. The manifold also adds auxiliary fuel ports. Not to mention it cleans up the top of the engine and makes it look and function better.
Finally, there is no need to change your top filter to one for a 3-cycle diesel garden tractor like some of the other aftermarket kits utilize. There's also no need to bother with junky adapters or mounting brackets for universal filter heads. Why go through all that for a comparable factory filter in size, filtration, and flow? The SPE 17+ 6.7 Powerstroke Fuel Filter Systembolts in the factory location while providing double the efficiency and performance, all while requiring zero cutting to install. This system can be installed without dropping the tank. Give your truck the best filtration on the market!
The 1R0749 filters are 98% efficient at 2 microns. Giving it a 2-micron absolute rating, the Ford top filter is rated 4 microns and only 5 microns absolute.

Certainly a nice addition to the disaster kit. Installation on a short bed is doable. Long bed probably need lift or ramps or similar as there is v little room. Quite an endeavor on the long bed.
SPE killed it with this product! I had another manufacturers top side fuel filter and although it was made better than OEM, it provided the same filtration and the same mess when changing. Pass! Insert the SPE fuel filter system. Installation was straight forward after watching powerstroke Rick's video (highly recommend) and reading the detailed instructions from SPE. Very pleased with this product and now fuel filter changes are a snap!
I love this product!!!
It’s well made and works great.
No more mess under the hood and not having to unhook the lines that are made of plastic and potentially breaking. I would highly recommend this product!!
Already planning my next upgrade.
Thank you for the time and effort you put into all of the products!!!
This is a easy kit to install. Thank you SPE
Super straightforward install; the 3 lines on the back of the filter assembly are a bit tricky. Took 4 key cycles to prime before starting and fired right up. Very glad that fuel filter changes are easier than changing my oil now!
Nice to have both filters under the truck. Very clean look after install. Install was fairly easy with good directions, factory quick connect fittings were the only problem.
This review is for those who are wondering if this will fit with a S&B 60gal tank. Short answer is yes it does. That said be advised you will need a 1/2” long spacer and a 1/2” longer bolt for it to mount on the fuel tank. The problem I came across is the 3 lines that come from the tank into the top of the filter housing will not allow the mount to fully seat into place. And yes I did make sure there was nothing blocking the fuel lines from getting any lower. Also it’s worth noting access to the filters is tight but doable. All in all I like the setup, biggest advantage besides better filtration is eliminating the cheap plastic filter on the top of the engine. That alone was worth it for me.
Easy installation, better filtration than the OEM. Highly recommend!
Another great product by the SPE team! Fits great, looks great, and the truck is running great. Keep producing great products Dan and team. - Mike
Well , I have not installed yet but, everything looks so sharp and well designed can wait to install it,
Alway makes great parts that fit exceptionally well!
Best alternative to OEM fuel filters, others exist but not as comprehensive, especially putting both filters where they should be
