high pressure oil line

has any one else had problems with high pressure oils lines that feed the heads. i keep blowing the line from the hpop to the passenger side head. is there a better upgrade out there or something i could do? should i try a cross over setup so the pressure in the heads even out? any ideas or suggestions would be great as im going crazy here. oh and the first time i was not programmed either

A crossover would even out the pressure between the two heads, but it should not decrease pressure. If your blowing a HP line off either the head or HPOP outlet then you may need a new line/outlet. Those are quick disconnect style lines that press on, as I am sure you know. If you have a scanner it is possible to look at ICP and ICP DC as well as IPR DC to get a better idea of your HP oil pressure parameters .

BTW, I have the HPX Crossover. It really did not give me anything in terms of performance, but you will be certain that both heads / Injectors are running at the same oil pressure. I don't know if I would do it over again, but it does not leak and I am not taking it off.

its not just popping it off the line its bursting the line cutting threw the stainless steel braiding. nothing is touching it. it is always the same line and its random. the last time it did it was 5 months ago and then last thursday it did it when i was out in the city. the line is not touching any thing else.

So each time the line burst you replaced the line?? Did you get the line from Ford? I have not had any problems like yours and I am sure those lines are rated for higher psi than you should see on your stock pump. You may want to call someone like BTS or TerminatorEngineering to see what they are using in their dual pump and / or big oil applications.
