Vegistroke vs all the others

Can someone please explain to me the difference between the vegistroke kit and all the others like frybrid and plantdrive? Through my research they all seem like they do pretty much the same thing and the vegistroke kit is at least twice as much as the others? Whats the big difference that makes it so much more expensive?

"....they all seem to do the same thing"

You can also use a shovel to dig a hole instead of a backhoe. They both do the same thing.

Seriously, the quality of build is what did it for me. Ask Frybrid or Plantdrive about their warrenty. Last time I checked it was 90 days. Vegistoke is two years.

BTW, Frybrid now sales the vegistroke. Ask yourself why.

I have to agree with All...the quality of the product and the way that DFA stands behind their product is what sold me on the Vegistroke kit. I don't know much about Frybrid or Plantdrive, but I do know that the Vegistroke is a truly engineered kit.

Good luck with your choice!

Thanks!

I did some rechecking on Frybrid and they indeed have a great warrenty on manufactured parts... four years. I can say that if I had another vehicle other than a powerstroke to convert they would most likely get my business. With that said, in reference to Powerstrokes, their website says:
7.3 PSD DI Turbo 94.5 - 99 no pump Not yet available
99-2003 7.3 DI Turbo electric fuel pump Specific kit required
02.5 PSD 6.0 DI Turbo Not yet available

...and recommends the vegistroke for 99-03 7.3 PS and 03-08 6.0 PS.

Refering to what id said above if another WVO company is suggesting that you use a competitors product, both they are impressed, and you probably shouldnt use there parts. I look at my vegistroke from an engineers standpoint and I still cannot come up with anything more than tiny minor things that I would change on the system. Its that good.

PlantDrive offers a five year warranty on the Hotfox, Vegtherm & Vormax. One year on other components. Look at the yellow box. The only "other" components are the Pollak 6 port valve and the FPHE, both inexpensive enough to replace cheaply off of eBay.

I think the vegistroke web site says it best....

This 13.5" long billet aluminum block incorporates a 95 gallon per hour pump for the highest horsepower applications that pulls fuel through a heated cleanable stainless steel 100 micron prescreen then sends it out through a replaceable fuel pressure capsule, pressure switch, temperature switch, check valve and 2 micron heated Donaldson water separating filter to the engine. The block has a built in air bleed that will now automatically purge new filters and bleed any air from the system, returns a small amount of hot fuel to the tank to keep the return line clean in severe cold climates. And the entire block is heated with coolant with no possible cross contamination. This module has spent the last 6 months in R&D, has 20,000 miles of testing with ZERO problems, and without a doubt is the most sophisticated state of the art WVO fuel system money can buy for your Ford Powerstroke.
