Clay and i think Snake have a 6.0. they will chime in soon.

first and foremost be positive you can collect oil. even go as far as to collect 100 gallons to be sure sources are willing to give it to you.

the 6.0 has tight tolerances on injectors that the 7.3, so you will nee to be anal about your oil, clean and dry. anyone should be actually but the 6.0 is more sensitive. but yes, it iwll work in a 6.0. i think BFT has kits unless you want to do a DIY.

Step 1. Make sure you have reliable oil sources (like RN said at least 100gal)
Step 2. Do a search on this forum for veggi conversions and get as much knowledge on it as possible. To my understanding the 6.0 is not a very good conversion candidate until some updates are made .
Step 3. Make sure it something you really want to do, its a serious investment, in $$ and time.

I am yet to begin my conversion but have been collecting oil for about 6 months now and have approximately 200gal stock piled. I also have been collecting the parts needed for my DIY conversion, as well as parts for my oil cleaning and filtering setup.

My point is that it not as simple as just getting some WVO from your local FF restaurant and dumping it in you truck so make sure you really want to make the leap into the lifestyle.

Oh and you must always consider the "WIFE" factor in your decisions!!!

I have been saying this all the time and people tend to just jump over how much really goes into the life style. There is so much to it and you will end up changing your mind and setup many times during the learning process. Oh and no matter what you do you WILL make a mess!!

Yea the wife factor is the most important... "you want to spend how much to save a few bucks?!?!"

Do it right, get a cf to filter the oil. There is no easier and better way to do it. Believe me, I have tried them all!

Just a basic 01 F350 CCLB SRW -Good from a far but far from good

i know. been busy, very busy. i have not had time to correct the CV failure i had a week ago. i have the replacement valves and just need to put them in. as well as fix a veggie leak at the filter housing. with any luck, and as long as someone is around to watch the kiddos i hope to finish tonight. thats the biggie. i cant leave the youngest one alone yet, and the older one isnt responsible enough to watch the oldest one. and the dog, well thats a different story.

gas is 3.62 here, and diesel 3.89. i gotta get this done! and fitler oil! i have a lead on a NEW 3400 rpm motor for $25 that i want to pounce on that would be great for a fuge, that alone may make buying cf supplies justifiable!
