greasecar vs. BFT V3?

Whats the difference between the Greasecar kits and the Vegistrok V3 kits other than about $1000? This is for a 99 7.3l

Thanks

The difference is that the V3 works.
The greasecar kit is an under engineered embarrasement. I purchased one back in 2004. It uses the stock super duty pump! The theory behind it is this: it sucks oil thru the filter. That will never work with a vane pump. In addition, it re-locates the stock FPR, which is highly intollerant to VO. The tank, filter housing and TIH system is as good as anyones though. So to summarize, Greasecar does have quality components, however, those boys know exactly nothing about how to make the PSD run on WVO. Believe me when I tell you, there is no comparison.

I have installed a few V3's as well. Significantly better engineered, but not quite percect. However, there is a new feature introduced last week for the V3 to combat the biggest fault in the V3. It can now be controlled with a logic board, and that will likely make the V3 even better.

I highly recomend that you completely forget the Greasecar kit (at least for the powerstroke) and further research the BFT V3. YOU WILL REGRET purchasing te Greasecar kit. It is a laughable piece of sh!t!

Omg by far the V3. Grease car uses a copper heatexchanger vice aluminum or stainless. Copper reacts with wvo and causes polymerization. BFT is far superior. Jump on the forums and read. I love my kit and recommend it to all others
