The best option IMHO is to buy a Vegistroke kit. If you want to do a DIY it can be done but it is alot of work & time involved.

First thing you need to make sure of is can you find at least one source of oil? Also you need to look at how you are going to process your oil. I would highly suggest a gravity feed centrifuge. You need to have really clean & dry oil for your 6.0 & a centrifuge is the best way to go.

What is your budget & how much time do you have to devote to this lifestyle per week?

Funny how what you just typed is easily $5,000 worth of merchandise. I cant wait til the day a "kit" can be bought at Walmart.

Didn't we already go over all of this with you??

new to the vegie

There isn't a "handbook" or anything. Converting to WVO takes a lot of research, more research, a lot of time, ALOT of $$$, and oh yeah YOU NEED OIL!!!!

If you want to "run veggi" as you say then the fastest way to convert your truck is to give BFT a call and pick up a V3. If you don't want to shell out that much then do alot of research and do some more. Then develop a schematic, come up with a budget, come up with a parts list, and then rework your plan. Then post it all up and we will be more than happy to give you all the advice we can give. Just asking "what do i do to convert my truck to run veggie" will only get you more responses like mine....

6.0 conversions aren't all over the place. It is not the industry standard. If the op had asked about a diy intake, or perhaps some other common 2 cent mod I would understand.

But your "search feature" comment is pointless and only adds to your post count. And the search interface on this site isn't the most user friendly any way.

So if you really have noting of value to add to the thread

97 F250 ext cab lwb 4x2
AirDog2 and FASS HD (it's a WVO RR setup)
Simple Centrifuge filtering method
203 degree Mod, DIY homegrown intake, CCV mod, battery relocation,
215amp Ambulance Alt.
EBPV gut, Pedestal gut & cut
Diamond Eye 4" (3" dp) turbo back straight pipe no kitty, no muffler

The OP is trolling for the 6.0 guys, which didn't contribute to his previous thread. So this "rethreading" seams valid to me.

And your outline in red is spot on

start by reading the "How HEUI works..." thread. understand exactily how your current fuel system works first. IMHO, this is something you should know whether you buy or build a kit.

So what's your point? I know it's expensive that's why I asked what his budget was. If he wants to a good DIY how much do yah think that's gonna cost? Not as much for sure but I bet 2 grand & a DIY is a big job.

easy tigger
I dont have a point its just that the price/cost will drive 98% of people away because they dont realize at first just how much they spend on fuel (2000$ per year on average) and how fast they will make their money back.
