The only other thing i can think of right now is maybe neoprene seals that were grounded up. But i dont think thats it either. God luck on trying to find the problem there.

First, Trusted Performance had nothing to do with my problem. Their oil filter relocation kit worked as advertised, unfortunately, they were given a bad Filter by the company that they bought their filters from. Their kit fit the way it was supposed to, and the part that they had to do with had nothing to do with the destruction of my motor. The filter that was on it somehow came apart. The black crud we found throughout the motor is in fact the filter media that came apart inside the motor. I found chunks of it all over the place, and a large part of it was missing from the filter. When I tore into the filter, I thought I had hit it with the blade I used to cut the metal outer casing. It turns out, I had not. The reason it wasn't filtering is because it had come apart in a section you could put your finger through. Why????? I cannot say, but when I called Trusted they got on the phone and contacted the manufacturer, and they are getting with me tomorrow. so a simple oil filter has destroyed 20K worth of motor, turbo's and injectors, not to mention the time that was put into it. I still don't have it tore down all the way, and I am gonna wait till I get finished talking with the oil filter company. I will not use their name just yet for legal reasons.

Sorry if this caused Trusted any hardship.

It was a Fram filter eh? Try a Motorcraft or Royal Purple filter.

No it was not a Fram filter. I had never heard of them before, but apparently they specialize in racing applications on auto's and motorcycles.

Royal Purple is garbage. It is to fine, and filters "to good", and it clogs really easy, and becomes useless.. Royal Purple oil is full of paraffin, and its a junky oil that breaks down really quick. So avoid the oil. and oil filters from them. Stay far from the K&N oil filters as well. Those are junk. You spend a wad of cash on them, just for you to have to replace them with your regular oil change...

6.0PSD is a great motor. I love the way it sounds.. I recently got a new toy. I got rid of my main truck, and got a 2011 PSD 6.7L King Ranch FX4. Still loving my little ranger though!
