Default Convert an f250 6.0

Hello,
Has anyone successfully converted an 6.0 powerstroke? I have read on other sites, that it can't be done. I have a 2006 f250 powerstroke that I would love to convert, but since it only has 12,000 miles on it, I want to make sure it will last to 2 or 3 hundred thousand miles.

It's been done by quite a few people. I have a 7.3 but many members on this site have 6.0's.

Default Convert a 2006 or 2007 Ford F250 with 6.0 engine

That is good to hear. Do you know any specific user names of those who have done it?

12K Miles? Wanna sell it?

No, it can't be done, you would be better off selling it to me and buying a 7.3. Pay no attention to the 2 6.0s in my sig line, it's just internet BS.

Really, I have no idea where to buy a 12K 6.0 but if I did I would buy it and instantaneously put a V3 on it. You are good to go!

Yup, did my conversion a couple summers ago. I've been kind of hit and miss with using WVO, but the system is definitely the only one I'd buy. It's a cool hobby.
