no it doesn't hurt....

I did mine myself, in my driveway, no shop, with the usual hand tools....
you DO need some specific parts, and good instructions....

there are several good write-ups, both here and on the Nation...

do a search for "E-Fuel" and you should find them...

I re-used the Banjo bolt that hooks into the factory mechanical pump, and the lines that feed the rear of the heads, and it's working out fine

used an Aeromotive Fuel Pressure Regulator, and a Stock Replacement Super Duty Fuel Pump ( mounted in the stock SD mounting bracket ).

it helped the starting, Idles much better and just runs better down low....

I did not do it for those reasons however, I wanted to get all the CRAP outta the engine Valley...you will eliminate the factory pump and the factory fuel bowl and all related HorsePucky.....
one of the best mods I've done.....

If you would just like a kit with no parts hunting then Jake's (Irate diesel) kit is the way to go. Not sure what you want to spend but the kit is pricey. Nicest kit I have seen though it is complete from the tanks forward and will set you up for bigger injectors down the road if you wish.

Yes, the Super Duty's use an electric fuel pump instead of the mechanical lift pump that the OBS trucks use.

Then could you take the stuff off a 7.3 SD and use on a OBS?
