Fixes the problematic OEM heater inlet tube which is prone to corrosion and leaking at the thermostat crossover manifold.
Easy install— Simple instructions that even an amateur can follow.
Durable— made out of billet aluminum with the correctly sized o-ring rather than the factory thin-wall steel with a poorly fitted o-ring.
Cleans Up Engine Valley— Great for highly modified trucks looking to clean up the valley of the engine. Fitting converts over to a ¾” hose outlet.
2011-2022 Ford SuperDuty F-250/F-350/F-450/F-550 6.7L Powerstroke
The 6.7L Powerstroke has a thin-wall steel line running from the coolant/thermostat crossover manifold to the heater hose. It’s not uncommon to see coolant weeping there, specifically where the heater inlet tube meets the crossover manifold. This is due to both the metal properties, making it prone to corrosion, and the poorly fitted o-ring and tube design. Additionally, any time there’s EGR work, turbo work, or any other movement of the tube, leaking is more prevalent. This is mostly in part to the flawed design of the tube. With the SPE Heater Inlet Tube Fitting Kit we have resolved this issue.
This kit includes:
SPE designed billet aluminum fitting
Hose Clamps (2)

Factory tube and O-ring is junk! Removed for a turbo and oil coolant line replacement and upon reinstallation could not get this to stop leaking -replaced the tube and went through 3 replacement o-rings. In scouring the internet, this SPE part is the ONLY thing that I found that appeared to be a reliable solution. Upon ordering, the customer service and communication, from SPE, was outstanding. The part arrived sooner than expected, took less than a minute to install, and was an immediate fix! HIGHLY RECOMMEND - don't even waste time trying to reinstall the stock tube and O-Ring!
SPE was excellent to work with. Phenomenal customer service, timely shipping and thorough installation instructions. I would recommend them to everyone
This took care of my nagging heater outlet pipe leak. I was able to install it without removing anything although it is tight working quarters. Installed in a little over an hour. I just completed a 1000 mile trip pulling an RV and no leak! I highly recommend.
This was a quick and simply upgrade over the OEM part. I had purchased two OEM parts prior finding this product. I would highly recommend this product to everyone!
Fast shipping, easy to install and works perfect! Too bad ford couldn’t get it right the first time.
Truck kept having same issue of leaking coolant, used this fix and it fit much better and stopped my leak for good.
Great upgrade, definitely recommend it
installed this when i did my 15+ turbo on my 13. the stock piece would have surely leaked if i tried to reinstall it. very happy with the fitment.
Excellent product, exactly what I needed. Quick shipping and thorough communication.
Shipping was great with all the updates SPE would send me.
Install took all of 60 seconds. The instructions were simply and the product was great. I was hoping for a sticker in the box but no such luck.
Cleaned up my engine bay.
Awesome quality and has a perfect fit. Suppose to be used to clamp onto the hard coolant pipe but I deleted the hard pipe for a much better look!
I have not installed yet. I’m
Waiting to get all parts before I drain the coolant. Part looks like it is good quality.
The part fit perfectly. No issues with installation. I would greatly recommend purchasing this part with the emperor kit. It would have saved me a few days. After installing my emperor kit the only issue I had was a small drip of antifreeze. I drained the system a couple times bought new O rings and the drip never stopped. Then I decided to purchase the SPE part.
Great fit. No leaks and don’t have to worry about it rotting out. The factory metal pipe was already rusting at 5k miles.
This is awesome. Such a clean install. Looks and function.
Definitely better than the leaky stock one. Love how they designed this!! Pure quality and you can tell they take pride in what they make.
Easy 20 minute install. A good preventative mod while your coolant is already drained from other maintenance or mod installations.
My stock fitting is still in good shape so I have not drained the coolant to install this YET. That being said, it’s a high quality machined part and based on other experiences with SPE parts, I’m CERTAIN it will fit perfectly.
GREAT PRODUCTS, GREAT COMPANY,
GO SPE #1
Easy to read instructions, very easy to install, and fit perfectly!
Nice quality product!
Have been happy with all my SPE improvements!
Figment was perfect ! Had the truck up and running in no time .
Even with everything going on in the world right now shipping was fast and got my truck back up in the road. The fitment was spot on and I now have a worry free part in place of a troublesome OEM one. Thanks!!
Haven't installed yet, the quality of the part is excellent. Will install once turbo is pulled.
This part is very well made and takes care of the cheap setup that ford used on the metal coolant pipe. Install was extremely easy, and was a great way to get rid of the cheap seal on the OEM setup that was leaking on my at only truck at only 75,000 miles. Would definitely recommend this to anyone that has a 6. 7 powerstoke.
