Buying an aftermarket IPR.

I just want some opinions. My truck is having IPR problems. I ordered a Oring kit from dieselorings and took apart my ipr.

During disassembly, I could not get the part that sits farthest towards the back of the truck that the IPR Coil sits on to come out. I tried spraying brake cleaner but it is stuck, I assume this was the problem because it is stuck. So I am debating if I should keep wasting my time trying to get the piece to come out or if I should just go buy a new IPR and have the piece of mind that there is absolutely nothing wrong with the IPR. So my question is I really want to fix my truck, and I do not want to wait for parts to come in. Napa has a IPR in stock, but I am wondering if I should avoid going aftermarket? I am pretty sure the Ford dealer here has it in stock, but I am sure the price is crazy. The Napa one is crazy too ($260) but I am wondering if the Napa one is as good of quality if I were to just use the ford one.

Price one at https://parts.autonationfordwhitebearlake.com/ and take their price sheet to your local dealer and ask them if they can meet the price. They'll probably say that price is below their cost. Can't hurt, and they may give you a discount just to keep your business. At worst they can say no and want to charge you list. AutonationWBL will send you one for $186 plus shipping if you can wait for the mail.

If you can't wait, the NAPA unit probably comes from the same factory as Ford's.

Injection Pressure Regulator. It regulates your high pressure oil, which fire the injectors.

Yea I fixed it back on the 10th of october. I broke down and convinced myself to just pay for 2 day shipping and wait for a motorcraft IPR (Got a motorcraft one for $150) It was the right choice. Runs smoother and does not have a hot no start/stalling issue anymore.

That was a good decision!
Just a suggestion for the future -- a genuine penetrating oil type product is superior to Brake Clean for loosening up seized parts.

CRC 5-56, Kroil, PB Blaster, etc....

For future reference, that part of the IPR is supposed to be stuck. The stem that the coil sits on is welded to the hex part that you use to remove it from the HPOP. No amount of brake cleaner or PB or Kroil, etc. will allow you to unscrew that piece. The stem where the o-rings sit does unscrew, but you have to be careful about crushing it, which would restrict the internal parts that should slide freely inside it. There is a tiny needle valve in the rear portion that is moved by the magnetism in the coil and it should come out the front of the IPR. If it's stuck inside (likely from sludged up oil), then something like brake cleaner could free it up to allow it to come out.

Sorry I missed that part earlier till ArcticDriver posted about using something besides brake clean for stubborn fasteners that are SUPPOSED to come apart.
