Just pulled the trigger on a Vegistroke...

Hopefully the kit will be here by August as they're (understandably) backed up right now. I'll post pics of the install once I put it in. I also just ordered a Dieselcraft OC-20, so hopefully I'll be able to finish my CF rig soon and have plenty of fuel ready to go by the time the kit gets here.

Vegistrokes have triggers? Did it "go off" when pulled?

I guess combining gun enthusiast terminology with veggie oil terminology doesn't translate well :lol: It's a common phrase on some other boards I frequent "Just pulled the trigger on (insert name of mod here)..."

Gun enthusiast here. Not understanding the analogy.

But we understand that you are getting a kit for the 7.3! Awesome and welcome to the board, feel free to ask crazy questions and come up with crazy ideas, as long as you're the kind of guy that shares information instead of being secretive, I for one will reciprocate.

Vegistroke its a nice kit with quality parts.. expensive but good none the less.

I have the V2 on my 2000 f350, a few minor hickups that were quickly resolved thanks to Jason.

Kind of goes along these lines. Pulling (yes I know "squeezing" is the proper term) the trigger is the act which initiates the sequence which results in a projectile being propelled from a gun... Nevermind...

I just received the module and fuel/coolant lines (tank is on the way) and I must say that I'm EXTREMELY impressed with the unit itself. From the weatherpack connectors to the machine work it's truly got an OEM feel. Needless to say I'm anxious to get the tank so that I can get cracking! In the meantime I'm going to begin to CF oil as I've assembled all of my parts. Pictures to follow soon...
