Re: SCA ?? WIX ??

There are two types of SCA, DCA-2 and DCA-4. But Ford does not specify any particular SCA for your PSD. FW-15, FW-16, and VC-8 are Ford's Motorcraft part numbers, not specifications (just like Ford's FL-1995 oil filter). Although Ford would like to sell you their Motorcraft DCA-4 (and their oil filters), any quality SCA will work wonders and meet your specification.
I like DCA-2 SCA because it doesn't contain the phosphates of DCA-4 SCA that cause scale when mixed with H2O. Plus it is Nitrite-only based. Nitrite is the primary cavitation inhibitor. DCA-2's don't need to rely on the Molybdate "synergy" that the DCA-4's must rely on. DCA-2's are easy to find (the most popular and widely used in the world), the most easy to test (any Nitrite 2-way or 3-way strip will work, and no hassle trying to balance the Molybdate/Nitrite scale to optimize protection), they deplete slower, plus they are harder to overdose. But if you're a hard-core Blue Oval, you can certainly fuss with finding and using the DCA-4 and 3-way strips.
BTW, the WIX SCA is excellent. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
