2004 plantdrive kit (plus extras)

I am hoping to throw a wvo kit on my 2004 6.0 asap. Has a banks kit on it (intercooler, exhaust, intake and 6 gun tuner) plus the engine was completely rebuilt 8000 miles ago, hopefully wont be problematic lik some people are suggesting the 6 liters tend to be...

here is a list of things i am considering for the kit, please share your suggestions/alternatives u might suggest, and be gentle i'm still new at this... THanks!

ps any ideas for to what temp i should change the thermostat for better warmup etc... though i saw somewhere people were doing that.

gauge pod suggestions and gauges (e.g. coolant temp? boost? eg temp? no ideas beside coolant) to get???

I am planning on getting a plantdrive kit with
1) hotfox PlantDrive™*Vegetable*Oil...

2) the triple valve setup (for "faster warmup and purge times")
here's their quote
"And the advantage of 3 High Flow Valves over 2 is quicker purge times, which means less purchased fuel used, but also is of benefit with a VOController, since you may decide to opt for the all-automatic option when programming the controller (not only auto-switchover from diesel to vegetable oil, but auto-purging: turn off the key, lock the doors, and walk away while the vehicle continues to run until the diesel has purged the vegetable oil from the system. An unattended but running vehicle is a carjack target (even though you've got the key in your pocket and the vehicle will stall once the purge is complete) so a quicker purge time helps keep the idiots away. (And "quicker" is hard to quantify - it depends on the vehicle. But a typical passenger car will see purge times shortened from 2-3 minutes at idle to less than a minute, and a truck's purge can be 3-4 minutes at idle with 2 valves, and about a minute with 3 valves."

and link... PlantDrive™*Vegetable*Oil...

3) along with the VM2 (not sure why i would need vormax) kit.

4) I am planning on getting a 60gallon tank from amazon
Amazon.com: RDS Fuel Tank - 60-Gallon, Model# 71212: Automotive Amazon.com: RDS Fuel Tank - 60-Gallon, Model# 71212: Automotive

and last but not least trying to decide whether a centrifuge kit ( i plan on filtering with coarser bag filters before running the CF unless one would suggest otherwise...)
roughly $580 think i'll just get a tank heater from amazon...
SCC20 WVO Centrifuge w/Pump & Motor at Fryer To Fuel

thanks for looking and your comments!
