efuel and wvo, regrets?

For those who have both, looking back with what you know now, what would you have done differently? Regret any decisions you made in your build after running/fixing/TSing it?

Even if you don't have both and just one or the other, I encourage yall to share your wisdom!

I want to learn from the mistakes of others..... this time.

The only real regret I have is I didn't start running WVO years ago. I did a DIY conversion which is based on the V3 CV design. Very happy with that. DIY is alot of work & if I had to do it again as long as I could get a kit for a reasonable price then I would go that route.

Overall WVO has been a great experince.

Boost, EGT, Tranny temp gauges. 04/10 DIY check valve VO conversion. 20 plate FPHE,Fass HPFP set at 70 PSI,TIH, 10 micron spin on filter with coolant wrap, 150 micron prefilter, hrydraforce purge valve, 40 gallon greasecar tank with hotfox, SS braided hose to heads, Oil temp, pressure & fuel level gauges. 110K miles on grease.

Its an OBS term, "electric fuel conversion". Our motors have a cam driven mechanical fuel pump.

A simple "bump" or "TTT" would probably have sounded better than this.

Also the first time I've ever heard the term efuel.

I used to make the Electric fuel kits for the OBS and never heard E-Fuel. Sounds like a Newly coined term, and not really a bad one at that.

I was laughing while typing it. Look at it as sarcasm, a joke. Bump or TTT (idk even know what that one means) isn't as funny

I've always called it that and always read it like that. When speaking I say electronic or electric. I think I got it from google when I would be searching for tutorials. Go to google and search "OBS efuel conversion powerstroke"

edit - and it fits nicely. Electronic mail = email. Electronic commerce = ECommerce. Electronic Fuel = Efuel. haha

I'll take the credit for it though. Especially since you don't think it's a bad one.

On a more real level, I was asking this because I'm collecting pieces to do a full conversion. Putting a 29 gal front take, titan rear tank, fuel bowl delete, diy wvo and e(lectronic)fuel.

I'm basing it off a diagram I have that someone did the same thing to in an OBS. FASS motor for wvo, heated filters, walboro for d2.

I'm trying to work out the fine details now and while I do that I also wanted to have a discussion about the "If I went back and did it again I would've done it like....." or "After a while I decided to go back and do....." so that I can start planning for those hiccups as well.

Planning doing the same conversions to my rig in the very near future as well. I have a leaking stock fuel pump as well as a leaking hpop. I figure if I am tearing it all apart then is all gonna get upgraded.

I will be usin a 6.0 pump for my D2 though, they have a bult-in filter assembly and can usually be found relativly inexpensivly on the net. I had a custom alum under bed 50gal wvo tank installed back where my spare tire used to be. I can say this... Research, research, and more reasearch!!! I have been gathering parts for almost a year for my e-fuel/wvo conversion. Also before you do the wvo side I would make sure you have ll the supporting pieces, one of the most important being OIL!! I have approx 400gal stock piled, plus most of the parts for my filtering setup.

Check out Aaronberk here on the org, he did a really nice write-up on his e-fuel/wvo conversion... Good Luck!!!
