Installing an HHO system in a 6.0L ford diesel???

Normally a vacuum tube is connected to the air intake and the cars vacuum draws the HHO from the cell as in the picture below.



Problem is that a diesel due to it's lack of a throttle body will not actually create vacuum to draw in the HHO. How would you recommend doing this properly? As you know these trucks have an electric vacuum pump to operate the HVAC and 4X4 systems.

Thanks for the help,

Patrick

shouldn't there be enough vacum from the turbo if you put the hose right in front of it?

stand in front of my truck at an idle and tell me it isn't sucking air big time. It sounds like it will suck you in if you get too close to the grill. Gotta love a good intake with the Zoodad mod lol. Stick the line in pre turbo as in the picture. You will be fine.
