questions on a frybrid system on 96 psd

So I finally have my new truck 1996 cc long bed 4x4 powerstroke. I already have my in bed tank and have been reading up on the WVO conversions. I am able to make my own kit, but came across the frybrid kit and was wondering what the consensus was. Having it already figured out is a plus right now because summer is almost here and I would like to be ready. I don't have a ton of time and would like to be up and running by summer. Is there any problems with this system and what are the goods and bads? I will continue to try and find some info but it always helps to get feedback from real users.

The good is Frybrid makes great kits.

The bad is if you place an order with Frybrid you most likely will wait a long time to get it. Frybrids customer service is terrible. I have seen it over & over. I have seen people wait years to get their kit & when they do it's incomplete.

Buy your kit somewhere else or do a DIY.

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.

If I reacall correctly, the frybrid system uses a large part of the OEM system, including the fuel bowl. If so.....RUN away.

I have a truck to help a guy with that has used a large part of the OEM system. Needless to say, it all (VO and D2 side) is a waste. It likely needs a new electric D2 side, and the VO side done as well (electric). This guy seemed to know more than me, so in doing his kit, he heated the stock midship tank for VO by adding a heat exchanger and started on his way. Now he has a real mess. THe pollock is non-functional, the steel lines are obstructed, the fuel pump isnt working, etc.......its a mess.

That is somewhat like the older frybrid systems were like. Later, the frybrid system modded a V3 module, creating a regulated return set up V3. That makes sence to me, but if its the older style, proceed with extreme caution.
