How many miles on your svo conversion?

I am considering doing a svo conversion on a 99 psd. Has anyone been running svo for over 100k or 200k miles. I am concerned about the long term effects that svo will have on an engine. If you are running svo/wvo in your truck can you please post how many miles/years you have been doing it for. Thanks.

SkySkiJason has 130k or so in the past couple years. He does not post on this forum.

I am about 36k now and 18 months.

The key is to do it right. Start the truck on diesel, switch to HOT oil and purge the oil out with diesel at shut down. The second key is good clean oil. you WILL NOT get this with filters..... you NEED a CF.

I don't want to argue that a CF is better than a still, but there are a lot of folks out there who successfully used a still for a long time. I believe Clay used a still for over 90k miles before going to a CF.

Filters without a water heater is a different story.

119K on the same injectors and havent touched the heads. (my F350)
100K on the 03 Jetta
130ish K on the GF's dads F250

I removed my stock injectors a couple weeks ago for Stage 2's.......They looked and performed GREAT! I would re-install them in a minute.

Here is the secret:
1) 160*F minimum before the fuel ENTERS the head.
2) DRY oil
3) Clean oil
4) #2 & #3 cannot happen without a CF

.....This just my opinion, I could be wrong.

I believe skyskijason still rocks heat and settle (my method). He posts over at frybrid's forum, so check in with him. Super helpful guy.
