Well, I have driven close to 100 miles since the update yesterday morning. So far, I have not had a hard cranking problem. But, then again, when I first took the car home from the dealer, I had it happen on every other restart of the engine. I was pretty upset, called my SA and he scheduled another appointment for me on Monday. He asked me to drive it and keep an eye on it, though. I told him I would do that. I will check into the pressure relief in the oil filters myself, over the next few days. I will check with each manufacturer, including Ford, to see the actual specifications.

I'll let everyone know.
