SPE 6.7 Powerstroke Disaster Prevention Kit + Exofilter The “Disaster Prevention Kit,” it does exactly what it implies; it prevents the disasters of a CP4 pump failure from destroying the rest of a very expensive high-pressure fuel system. While this is a very simple concept up until now all the other systems on the market were incomplete in our eyes. SPE has rewritten the book and designed a kit that has none of the installation downfalls or shortcomings.
CP4 high pressure pumps are considered problematic for the 6.7L Ford Powerstroke engine due to them being more sensitive than other high pressure pumps. They are more susceptible to contamination due to tighter tolerances and higher operating pressures. When the pump fails It sends debris into the rest of the system and requires a several thousand-dollar replacement of injectors, rails, lines, etc.
Function The CP4 pump is internally lubricated by diesel fuel. Diesel fuel is pumped up via the lift pump to feed the CP4 lubricating the crankcase area of the pump first, Then fuel flows from the crankcase to the MPROP (volume control valve) once the valve meters the fuel it allows it to flow to the pump heads. It is then compressed and pushed out to the high pressure lines, rails, and injectors. The weakness of the CP4 pump lies in the crankcase area where a set of roller lifters/buckets ride on a camshaft. When the failure event occurs the fuel becomes contaminated immediately and is sent out to the rest of the system.
The Cure Our kit bolts to the CP4 pump and changes the routing of the fuel flow so that lubricating fuel is divided, feeding the fuel to the MPROP from the fuel filter and not from the crankcase of the pump. This makes sure that the crankcase fuel that's contaminated during a failure doesn't make it out to the high pressure fuel system.
This is where every other disaster prevention kit falls short and sends the contaminated fuel back to the tank contaminating the return side of the system including lines, fuel cooler, and tank.
The ExoFilter allows the customer to monitor their system when maintenancing their vehicle. When the ExoFilter clogs during a CP4 pump failure it helps the truck give signs of an issue so you can shut off sooner, rather than returning debris to the tank and passing it through the fuel filter at the lift pump & engine. This can takes a lot of time to plug, if it even happens, and add even more labor and cost to an already costly repair bill.
The ExoFilter is designed to allow the customer to open up the filter & check for debris. It includes a 20 micron, washable metal filter that fuel passes through. The Exofilter gives you peace of mind when checked during every fuel filter change so you can catch a problem before catastrophic failure occurs.
The SPE kit also does not require the customer to cut any fuel lines like the other kits on the market. We also do not use hydraulic hose with compression fittings, or cheap rubber fuel hoses with T fittings and crimp clamps like our competitors. Beware of kits with rubber hose there is a reason automotive manufacturers don't use them anymore. Our kits come with an American made Fragola PTFE stainless braided PVC coated AN fuel Hose. The biggest bonus is that there is no cutting, thus making this kit 100% plug and play.

50 STATE COMPLIANT kit that requires NOtuning or modifications after installation.
**The SPE 6.7 CP4 disaster prevention kit cannot prevent the CP4 pump from failing. What it does do is help prevent the failures contamination from entering the high pressure fuel system causing more damage and also returning to the tank. It even offers the ability to monitor fuel system health.
After reviewing the options to protect my entire fuel system, I concluded this was the best on the market. My 2012 6.7 has 182,000 miles. I couldn’t risk that pump contaminating and damaging the entire system. When I pulled the control valve on top of the pump I was so relived not to see a bit of metal or rust, it was pristine. So I have beaten the odds by installing this kit. Yes the pump will fail but it’s $2000 to fix instead of $12,000-15,000 for an entire fuel system. Thank you SPE.
WILLIAM B K.
Overall, the SPE DPK is very well built. I performed the install along with a EGR/DEF delete. I also installed new fuel filters at this time. After everything was assembled, and the truck was tested, I kept getting the Low Fuel Pressure error. Since I made a ton of changes to this truck at one time, I was not 100% convinced that the DPK was the root cause of the low fuel pressure issue. I methodically tested each change and found that the SOTF switch was the root cause of the low fuel pressure issue. While installing the SOTF switch (which was not a SPE product) I didn’t think it was a good idea to tie the wires from the SOTF switch to the fuel pressure sensor harness as the instructions called for. My advice- and take it for what it’s worth, if you get a low fuel pressure alarm after installing this kit, check your SOTF first before removing both intake manifolds again and removing the DPK. Doing this solved my low fuel pressure issue.
Everything went on as planned. I think there should be a video made of taking the truck intake off the engine (time consuming).
Also, I think the plastic line fitting on the small screen filter should be a little shorter on account of the return line being shoved up against the brake booster.
Nice kit otherwise!
Made very well and looks great. Knowing there is some protection gives piece of mind.
Suggested improvement, in instructions explain the filters with 2 ports vs 3 port. Also identify the return line by size and factory color of connector.
While installing I found my return line was damaged. These are 12mm/1/2" plastic fuel lines.....would be nice to have the sizes of all fuel lines listed in instructions, just in case repairs are required.
Fyi, standard plastic lines are 3/8, 5/16, and 1/4 so part stores don't carry 1/2" and none of them knew what size my line was in order to find parts. Every parts store in my area told me it was a dealer only part. Call the dealer and you can't buy repair kits or parts, only $600 complete fuel line as long as the truck.
Sure-r makes plastic repair parts for plastic fuel lines. Go to thier web site to fund a parts store that is a registered reseller in order to buy individual pieces. Thier quick connects are as good as factory, high quality.
Products is well designed and made. Instructions are some of the best I have seen. Detailed with great pictures!
Kit installed really easy directions were easy to follow as well.
It should be known when you buy the deserter prevention kit you also need a ccv reroute kit so you can install the return catch screen. Another 200.00
Installation did take a quick minute of the whole kit. Instructions suck BTW. Here are just a few suggestions to help that only takes a quick minute to add to them. 1-add a complete parts list with pictures of the parts.
2-I got the two retainer ring clips/covers mixed up. Which in goes on the return/exit? 3-Have a picture with each step and arrows. I was able to figure the kit out but adult legos with fuel system parts isn’t that fun with crappy instructions. 4- add the torques for the upper and lower intakes and other bolts removed. That extra step will save some of us that don’t have a shop manual to reference. 5-have a side note or call out for you to look at your intakes/throttle valve for possible blockage/baked on carbon. I had to soak both intakes and butterfly valve in purple power for 24 hours to dissolve the buildup. (I haven’t deleted my EGR). 6- Recommend vacuum out under the lower intake once removed and wipe of any debris around CP4 fuel pump/valve before disassembly. Mine had sand/grease and other items when I removed the lower intake. 7- that Allen bolt for the retaining ring cover on the ExFiler is a bitch to tighten or start. That should be the first thing you should put on when everything’s completely dissembled.
Other than that, solid product. Fits nicely and looks OEM.
System is extremely precision and a very good design. The only complaint that I have is the difficulty of installing the return filter screen housing on to the return line. A quick connect at that point would be great. Very difficult to get the plate and Allen screw on the bottom without dropping them. Otherwise great job.
Best kit on the market! Very robust and solves many issues!
Great quality product, instal was a breeze definitely recommended for a peace of mind for when your cp4 fails saves you a ton of money. Installed on a 2014 f250
Went on flawless and saved me a ton of money in the long run
I have a 2019 powerstroke and the only complaint I have is both the reroute and the filter come in contact with the ccv and takes a little finesse to get it to fit in. But if you had the ccv reroute aswell it would probably fit perfectly.
Very good item. Best on the market. Will order more items in future.
I found the product as advertised and instructions good as well . It would have been nice to show the customer how to open the actual plastic return line clips , some of them proved tricky . Also when the product is shipped to Canada they change an extra $120 to get the product from the border to my house , since this product would fit in my mailbox it could have been much cheaper on shipping to use Canada post instead of UPS . On future order would this be possible as I am looking at some other SPE products .
I think the product quality is great. I only had one issue with the ccv pipe not working with the distribution block that mounts on the fuel line. The block would not fit with out the line spacer but with the line spacer the ccv tube won’t fit
All the right parts and easy install. Fit perfectly.
Everything fit great
AWESOME product! The quality is top notch. Installation was a breeze!
All my up grades will be purchased from SPE. Very well made parts and and very good instructions. If you are Mechanically inclined you can put this parts in, there will not be another company I buy from for my f250 very pleased.
Easy install and fit great
It took nearly four months to receive my order. Never again
Fast delivery hopefully I will never have to test if it works but I’m extremely happy and pleased
Work or play, these trucks are the best
Everything was perfect. Instructions were clear. Only two “complaints” first the fitment of the filter to the existing fuel line was goofy. Second the instructions should mention some stock lower intakes might not fit, I had to grind the casting seem off then it was fine
Excellent product! Don't listen to the rumors regarding low fuel pressure. Simply not true. Get this product and protect your fuel system if/when your CP4 pump decides to die. SPE is a legit company and takes pride in their R&D in order to provide its customers with solid products that last. Keep pumping out these great products Dan and company. Can't wait to see what's next.
You should include the thread sealant. Wasn't bad to install and if it saves a $12000+ repair bill you can't go wrong.
Installed on my 2015 6.7
Better angle to miss clamp on coolant line
Great product!!! I did change the angle 90 degree an fitting. So it would miss the turbo coolant line clamp. And it fallowed the other fuel hard lines better.
Easy install worth the money
Very doable for a weekend DIYer. Definitely do your homework with the videos that are on YouTube in preparation on the specialty tools you might need and just better familiarize yourself with the steps you Gotta do before tackling.
Hardest part for me was honestly getting the O-ring off the metering valve to install the new one . That along with the back right bolt on the passenger side was very tight to get to with a sensor in the way , even with the right wobbles and extensions . also I recommend sliding the fuel lines coming from underneath the truck a little bit to give you a little slack on the return line so you do not kink it for the mini keg . Installed it with no leaks . As soon as you receive the product definitely put it together to give the thread sealant some time to cure I waited a day before I started . Didn’t receive the thread sealant that they recommend but I made it work with what I had access to . Helpfully no issues in the future love the way the finished product looks
Last thing loved how I got the upgraded stainless steel nut flange on the fuel line I was really able to tighten down knowing that I can’t over tighten it and break it like some the older ones definitely does not need to be super super tight.
Spe for the win !
So this kit was properly and well explained by Mr. Snyder and the website. After learning of the CP4 pump and the problem that it potentially could experience and what the consequence of that happening could be, down without vehicle and the fuel system total replacement cost +/- $10k, I conclude that the SPE disaster prevention kit was what my 2014 6.7 power stroke needed. It was fairly easy to install. Thank goodness for YouTube videos which are linked on there site I believe. You do need some mechanical back ground for this install. I have one suggestion that the instructions provided have narrative to each step. I gave it a 5 star in anticipation that the kit will do what it is designed to do and I hope I never have to find out! Thank you SPE for quality products!
For perfect but had to wait 4 weeks.
Easy install and seems to be working but now if I’m in tune 4 or 5 and I get a p0087 fuel rail pressure too low anyone know why
Very happy with this product. Easy install and gives me piece of mind.
This product is great quality and fitment was perfect. Installation went smoothly.
Took a long time to get and it was missing a part, they did get the part to me alot faster, the fitment was really tight if you have your ccv system intact
This kit seems to be very high quality. I am confidant it will do its job if I encounter a CP4 failure. The installation instructions however, were not the greatest and left room for major improvement. Fortunately, I found a video on YouTube that was very helpful on getting this kit installed.
It was easy install and it just saved me 8k in repair bill on my 16 f450
This is what happens when you don't have the disaster kit for your high pressure fuel system.
Super easy to install. Only took 45 mins to install
The install was pretty straight forward with the kit. The working space under the hood was a little troublesome at times but SPE has no control of that. Customer service was great. I had a missing O-ring with my kit and SPE got it to me within 3 days. Attached photo is of my 3 year old son Wyatt helping me with the install. He was super excited to work on “Daddy’s big truck”. Great experience with him putting it in.
Took about 4-5 hrs to install hardest part was removing intake manifold while I was at it also replace cold and hot charge pipe also from SPE top notch when it comes to overall quality thanks again Amy and Chance for all the help
Easy to install. Just hope my pump never goes out.
Installation went well. I like the quality of the SPE parts and hopefully this will protect my fuel system should my fuel pump fail in the future. I purchased the SPE kit over others due to the quality of parts and option to check the filter screen as an indicator of a failing pump.
The only bad thing about this kit is setting the bottom bolts on the mini kegs was time consuming and very hard to install
Install is pretty straightforward but had to watch a couple install YouTube videos as the directions were silent. Where the original volume control valve screws are to be replaced with supplied cap screw per direction 6, there was only one. Had to improvise with a non-stainless bolt at my expense.
Awesome product. Wasn’t hard to put on. A little patience and time. Had it built and on in about 4 hours by myself, just working off my deck. Now I can rest easy knowing I don’t have to worry about cp4 pump causing thousands of damage.
A great product and a great price. Will save me Alot of money and time if fuel pump fells.
I have not put it in yet but, love how fast it got to me. I will write another review after it goes in. Thank you
Products are the best quality
They seam to know a lot about my 6.7 powerstroke
Will buy from them again for sure
Quality parts. Very happy with this product
Installation was done by my company’s head mechanic that is responsible for keeping a fleet of 60-70 Ford 6.7 on the road and working. He installed this on my personal truck and had never seen this kit but has installed a lot of the other popular kit available. He was very impressed how complete this one was and how well it was engineered. Absolutely no problems or leaks and took hours less time to install than the other one he’s been using. I was impressed also as checking the exo filter will be a breeze. Excellent location and very accessible. Installation was done on a 2015 F350.
Haven't installed yet but really looking forward to! I love that I don't have to cut or modify anything to install the kit and just the piece of mind alone that my fuel system is protected is worth every penny!!!
The disaster prevention kit was great. The only problem is the directions were terrible. For the price they really should be step by step. And separate instructions showing you how to put the kit together
Absolutely great product, excellent quality and fitment, would highly recommend to anyone that owns one of these 6.7 trucks. Super easy install, and very easy to maintain. Customer Service has been excellent as well! Keep up the great work and the great product line!
This is the best kit on the market today....I would not purchase another if your serious about protecting your sweet ass ride...
Performance to match your power desire.
Easy-ish install. Glad there are videos to help along the process though, like Results May Vary have on YouTube. Initially I had a massive leak off the block and MPROP. I had older directions that didn’t talk about the extra supplied O-ring to replace on the MPROP. The oem one can swell and it won’t “click” into the SPE block. I thought it was tight, well it was not. I had a pond of diesel in the valley in front of the turbo. I tightened the 90 degree fitting and redid the Loctite 545 I used. Also replaced the o-ring on the MPROP with the supplied one in the kit after I looked up the updated directions on SPE’s website. I bought this in January. Older directions didn’t mention the extra o-ring. The MPROP made the distinctive click noise this time. Can say no leaks now. Happy with product other than that slip up.
I watched their YouTube video just to see what was involved on how to install it and they recommend also installing the CCV reroute kit, I now understand why... not just because of the oil but that fact that it was a real pain to install with the CCV hose in the way! All in all I got it installed with no leaks and the quality of parts was great! Definitely a nice peace of mind knowing that my fuel system is protected from the CP4
Clean, easy install for my Diesel Mechanic. A small investment for peace of mind. Totally worth it.
Great Quality will be adding more SPE parts in the very near future.
I would have given this kit 5 stars but two things I didn't like. 1. Missing parts. Not all the parts were in the box that was sent to me. 2. On a 2105 6.7 the return fuel line is at a 90 degree angle and where it attaches to the manifold should be at a 90 degree angle as well. You have to install the manifold to the return line first and kind of tweak the manifold in place on the return line. IMHO not the cleanest way to have the manifold and return line connect together.
Otherwise works as advertised.
Install wasn't to bad. Only wish the directions were in color like the videos i watched before doing the install
Amy and Chance are get. Chance answer my questions and Amy makes sure I get everything I ordered. products fit like described, instructions are provided and there are great instructions on their website i have bought alot from snyder and waiting on some additional products that are custom. Would like an egr test plate for my valve cover with spe on it. Hint
Great fit once everything was removed. It would be helpful if more detailed instructions of disassembly were included. The upper plastic intake was a nightmare getting out. FYI if you have to remove the auxiliary heater supply tube like I did go ahead and get a new o ring for it and lube it really well and go in straight as possible. Its really easy to roll the o ring. Other than the difficulty removing everything out of the way the kit went together great and looks really clean. Great product! Thanks.
Nice and clean look to it.
Shipping was fast.. I had one issue the 45 degree black line kept leaking. I had to bend it a little for it to stop leaking overall love it
As I was working I had a great Company/ “Unlimited Vehicle Solutions” here in San Mateo, California install the disaster kit and few other items and I couldn’t be happier with the installation. All of you there at Snyder Performance Engineering make a great engineered product. Thank you!
Love that I don't have to cut anything, waiting for some new gaskets to show up so I can install it
Great kit to protect yourself from thousands of dollars in damages if pump done go out
If you got the exo filter put it on first!!! Easy kit especially for a guy like me who doesn’t do mechanic work. Plug and play.
Well made kit, good fit. Good to have no worries for when my CP4 fails that my injectors are safe and don’t have to clean the complete fuel system out.
Works great no problems Thank you
I did not install this kit myself. I had it professionally installed and the install company said the installation was very easy to do and that the kit is very well thought through. Highly advise you to purchase this kit.
Easy install, plug and play. Little time consuming due to existing parts needing removed to install. As in running I can’t really tell anything but it’s there to save my fuel system not for performance.
Received item fast and in good condition, I opened box and everything seems to be there and in good condition. I have not installed the kit on my truck but based on other reviews I expect it to work flawlessly.
This is our 3rd kit to install on trucks in our fleet. Can not really say how well it works until the pump fails again. Hoping that is not any time soon. Quality of the components in the kit is excellent. As for the fit, it is good but can be improved. The fitting that is screwed into the MPROP Adapter needs to be changed to a 45 degree and the end of line that attaches to it changed to a straight fitting and lengthen the line by about 1 inch. Currently we are having to grind the edge of a bracket to keep it from chaffing the line. We plan to install 8 more of these kits on ambulances in our fleet.
Super quick shipment, owners remained in constant contact throughout the shipping.
Installation was fairly easy. Taking apart the truck was the most time consuming.
100% plug and play. SPE has more than delivered
Pretty easy install very happy with the quality
Fit and finish is very nice very straightforward install with no cutting. Only complaint is it took 6 weeks to receive even tho it was in stock.
Fairly easy to install. Like the fit and finish. Looks great.
Exceptionally well made product. Easy to install and everything fits great.
That kit is premium! Had no issues or leaks. Thanks a lot really like your products.
It took a few months for me to get this on because of a busy work schedule, but finally got it on. Pretty easy to install with some knowledge of mechanics. 2 bolts that hold new plate on top of fuel pump were wrong but no big deal, just ran and got ones to work. Initial thought are great, finger crossed that I don’t ever have to find out if it works, but it gives me some piece of mind.
Clean and easy install
Service was good, product is very good.
When i ordered, their website said in stock, however there could possibly be a 3-4 week shipping delay. I live close in Maryland and my order got to me in less than a week. All the parts appear to be included and in good shape. My diesel mechanic recommends SPE for all my diesel parts. I will also be switching over to their tuning shortly. Thanks guys!
The kit itself is awesome. It’s built well and it seems solid. The instructions were about zero help but I watched some YouTube videos and that helped. The little bolts that held on the retainer ring thing were a nightmare for my big hands to deal with but it really is a nice kit.
Got my order and everything looks good. Says in instructions for the Powerstroke Disaster Prevention Kit *Note- For sealant SPE recommends the included Vibra-tite 44050 on NPT fittings. I didn't receive any, so I had to order. When I get it, I'll install the 3 different kits I ordered.
We maintain a fleet of ambulances, 11 of which are Fords with the 6.7L. We have experienced the disastrous fuel pump failure on 2 of those with repair costs of $5,000 + just for parts. We are in the process of installing your kits on all of our 6.7L engines because they are a bargain compared to the alternative. Installation is simple and clean.
Kit took a while to install but it was well worth it. Kit went together well and was fairly easy to install. Hardest part was removing the upper intake manifold. There is a bracket holding the coolant lines that blocks removal of the intake. It does not look like much but once you take the time to loosen this bracket the intake slides right out. Allow yourself a few hours to compete this project. Not something you want to rush on. Some videos on Youtube show people installing it and putting everything back together right away. Follow the instructions and check for leaks BEFORE you reinstall. I had two small leaks that needed to be tightened a little bit more on each fitting. Would have been terrible to take it all back apart. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS!
I’m waiting to install, piping kit is on the way hopefully soon so I don’t want to get into it twice.
Took forever to get because it was back ordered. Quality is second to none which is why I waited. I understand this a small business, if you want it fast you’ll probably be disappointed. If you don’t mind waiting for quality order now! The exofilter was the big selling point for me.
From ordering to arrival in Canada was quick! Will install at a later date as it’s raining here !!
Thank you Amy and family for fast service !!! Will send install pics later on !! Rick
Everything fit nicely and install was easy with the instructions
