Default 06' 6.0 vegistroke !EMERGENCY!! wrong parts

Please help ASAP! I bought the V4 vegistroke and I spoke with Peter in CT. and he thinks I have the wrong manifold!!! but is driving right now and can't get to his computer. Is anyone on that can help figure this out?? I called BFT several times no return calls. I am also missing parts that I can probably buy locally with someone's expertise.. Thanks, Nick

There is only one V4 manifold. It can be configured for different applications. Give Dave a call

Yes, there is only one manifold, what is it that makes you question what you have?

I returned your phone call and got VM.

There is only one V4 manifold. It can be re-jiggered to straddle either a Cummins or a PowerStroke engine, but it's the same manifold.

What is it that's causing you to think it's the "wrong" one?

Welcome to the forum. I can remember when something didn't make exact sense in the veggie world sent me into emergency mode (I still get that way sometimes). A few things to consider/remember when looking for a response:

1. Not everyone is on the forum or even checking it every hour every day.
2. an emergency is " I'm on I95 with my family hauling a TT and my truck just died".
C. Jay is on left coast time and this is not his full time job..... so give him a little time to respond.

In the mean time we are all on here from time to time (some more than others) and usually are happy to help.

He called. Did not have instructions printed out. I advised him to do that. Then he sent me a photo of some of the parts he was having trouble with. Just not clear on what he was doing...Think I helped.

He called me thinking I was BFT and telling me about parts that would not fit. After explaining to him that he did not buy the kit from me he calmed a little bit.

He was very frustrated because BFT did not answer right away. Nick you can call back about the manifold...I will try and help....Dave
