Have an 04.5, am wondering if replacing the Banjo Bolts is worthwhile? Have the updated blue regulator spring, usually run 58 psi, 56 under heavy load.
Would I need 4 or just the 2?
Am anxiously awaiting an SCT X4 from Ed at FICMrepair to run the tow tune with my Atlas 40 tuned ficm. He says I will really like it. Stock head bolts are holding good so far.:)

When I had my 6.0, I gutted the banjos of their check valves and drilled them to increase the flow. It can be done to the stock banjos, or you can use the 6.4 banjos. You only need two unless you have a rear crossover line, or return lines from the rear of the head.

I did them at the same time as the blue spring upgrade so I couldn't say if there was truly an appreciable gain from the banjos, but the truck ran good, and removing the check valves never proved to be an issue.

I had removed the check valves early in mine also without any problem. Same thing don't know if there was a gain, but it didn't hurt.
