2004 powerstroke kit

Postby wyzzardozz » Mon Jun 13, 2011 1:14 am

Hello I am picking up my 04 powerstroke this week and hoping to do a WVO kit install on it almost immediately.

here is a list of things i am considering for the kit, please share your suggestions/alternatives u might suggest, and be gentle i'm still new at this... THanks!

oh yeah and any ideas for to what temp i should change the thermostat for better warmup etc... though i saw somewhere people were doing that.

I am planning on getting a plantdrive kit with
1) hotfox http://www.plantdrive.com/shop/product. ... ctid=16137


2) the triple valve setup (for "faster warmup and purge times")
here's their quote
And the advantage of 3 High Flow Valves over 2 is quicker purge times, which means less purchased fuel used, but also is of benefit with a VOController, since you may decide to opt for the all-automatic option when programming the controller (not only auto-switchover from diesel to vegetable oil, but auto-purging: turn off the key, lock the doors, and walk away while the vehicle continues to run until the diesel has purged the vegetable oil from the system. An unattended but running vehicle is a carjack target (even though you've got the key in your pocket and the vehicle will stall once the purge is complete) so a quicker purge time helps keep the idiots away. (And "quicker" is hard to quantify - it depends on the vehicle. But a typical passenger car will see purge times shortened from 2-3 minutes at idle to less than a minute, and a truck's purge can be 3-4 minutes at idle with 2 valves, and about a minute with 3 valves.

3) along with the VM2 (not sure why i would need vormax) kit.

4) I am planning on getting a 60gallon tank from amazon

and last but not least trying to decide whether a centrifuge kit ( i plan on filtering with coarser bag filters before running the CF unless one would suggest otherwise...)
roughly $580 think i'll just get a tank heater from amazon...

or maybe buying the greasecar in home filter kit from the guy on this forum he's asking $500 obo...

Check out Vegistroke kit

Do yourself a favor, checkout the Vegistroke V3 kit from BFT before you buy. Study all of the kits, ask some questions and then put your money down. I have a 99 7.3 PSD and I just purchased a used V3 Vegistroke and I am sure it will be the ticket. Let us know what you end up getting.

Ditto! I'm three years in, just over 100K on my V3 and couldn't be happier.
