Sourcing feedstock will likely be your biggest headache.
You have a good start on making your truck "bulletproof". I only asked that question because when I was doing a lot of VO conversions, I required a complete check up done on the VW's by my VW mechanic friend. WHen doing PSD'd I drove them, and checked them over as thourough as I could for two reasons: 1) Mechanical health should reduce "phantom" problems that inevitably gets blamed on the change in fuel 2) I would require anything found out of standard to be repaired so I didnt get the blame for causing it!
In addition, have you given any thought about which wash method you are going to use? As big of a PITA (and slow) water washing is, I recomend it for the 6L. In my opinion, nothing cleans B100 like a good tripple hot water wash and dry. With that said, I would recomend that you strive for a perfect 27/3 test and water washing followed by a thourough drying process. The 6L is not a resiliant fuel delivery system, and the above would make me sleep much better at night.....
And BTW, my next one will be a 6 leaker (so not to be called a 6 leaker hater). I will, however, make it completely bulletproof before changing its diet. Including Bulletproof's complete kit with Black Onyx head gaskets, Casserly remans, ARP's studs, Egr from Bulletproof, and air to air oil cooler, performance HPOP, etc.....the bow to stern, top to bottom treatment. That makes for an increadible power platform when its done....its just pretty damn expensive!
