I'll be watching this, as I may have to do this soon myself.

What I am being told is you jack up the engine, remove motor mounts, lower engine so the pan is sitting on the front crossmember. Contrary to that, I have been told that you can't do both sides at the same time- remove one motor mount, drop the engine, do that sides injectors, then reattach that side and do the same process for the other side.

I am also being told that some 6.0's have injector cups that you have to replace, and can be a real pain to get at.

I also have one guy that says he just pulls the engine and trans out to do this. I cannot see how that would be quicker, but I bet it would be a lot better in terms of sanity, lol.

Good luck! If you like doing this, let me know. I may let you do mine ;)

Just did the driver side today on an 06 e450. Its much easier than passenger side. no need to do any jacking . just remove the intake tube, and glow plug relay bracket and you can finagle the valve cover off. I have to crawl under the bus the get the center lower valve cover bolt off but otherwise most all bolts are accessable from the doghouse and hood. Since these are such a nightmare to replace I recommend using ford injectors instead of alliant powers . Our local fuel shop says aliant power injectors have a very high failure rate compared to fords. Get some nice firm pillows to lay on while your camped out in the doghouse .
