How much did you put in? I've read that perhaps a quart on a tank full?

Using 2-cycle oil doesn't harm anything else? I've been adding Power Service each time I fuel up. I used to own a 05 Dodge with the quiet diesel, and this 7.3 PS is really noisy in comparison, so if 2-cycle oil quiets it down some ... I'm for it but also don't want to cause any long range problems down the road a couple of years ...

I used it for quite a while with no ill effects. I think at the dilution it is, it shouldn't cause problems. I look at this way - It's used in 2-cycle engines all the time diluted with gas....should diesel be much different? That's just me thinking. I'll stop before I get a headache...

It does quiet things down 'a bit' - Don't expect it to be super quiet, but it's noticable. I, too, use DK most of the time.

because the ULSD our trucks are forced to run out lacks alot in lubrication.. so therefore it helps...

anyway yes they will be because most upgraded injectors are all single shots.... quite noisy lol
