Ford updated all that with a good fix that I haven't seen fail yet, BUT, only the reman engines received the upgraded heater core hardline. There's a picture of it in one of the Haynes or Chilton manuals....If you own one lol.

BTW, -the HCHL by-pass by the firewall is there for the trucks that have the Cold Climate system package.
Thanks JBrew. From where it's leaking, sounds like the bypass is leaking; at least that's the general location

Cats are clogged so they're being cut,I've got an sct tuner ordered so the o2 sensors won't be an issue. Performance wise will I lose anything by not having cats?

That's awesome man. Just liked your page. If you don't have plans for Oct 24-26, come on down to the Iron Horse Mud Ranch in Perry Fl! We have some good bogs down here too!
