What I can tell you is that after about 7,000 miles on oil(since I've had it) and a hard winter I am very comfortable with the 6.4 platform as being robust enough to support being converted. However the drawbacks are that fuel, or rather oil quality will be of utmost importance. There is no way it will be as tolerant as the 7.3. Another potentially bigger problem is the EPA. I think we are all aware by now that engine oil and WVO don't play nice together. It is also no secret that the untuned 6.4 puts a lot of fuel in the crankcase through the nature of the REGEN process. Recently the EPA has cracked down on Tuners essentially halting the sale of all tuners that disable the OEM emissions controls. So, moving forward- can it be done reliably: reservedly Yes. Will it be worth BFT's time and resources to mass produce a kit that requires breaking the law using only black market available parts?- Don't know

Thanks Jason!

Looks like I'm going to have to go to the Dodge Dark side.

Well that's depressing.

The new Duramax design does not put the unburned fuel in the cylinders, it's got a line that goes to the DPF directly. That sort of setup could be engineered around without tunes easily enough. But who wants to do all that to a truck under warrantee? Besides, they are using muffler juice (diesel exhaust fluid) on the newest diesels now too, complicating things even more. And if you are in a state that does emissions testing, you are screwed from the get go. With the new clean diesels, I'd be very surprised if they don't start testing newer diesels like they do gassers.

They are making this crap too hard.

Well, forward Progress sounds like it's being made! I'd still be very interested in Beta-Testing the '08+ Ford setup. Got the (mostly) Warm Weather testing environment here in NC... I've got the SCT Livewire tuner, but a lot of guys around here don't much care about running around with the red light on the dash...that's what electrical tape is for. Contact me or not, but keep on with the development Gents! Kinda like NASA and Velcro... your R&D is helping push civilization forward. At least a small corner of it anyway. DD

The lack of progress rests sorely on my shoulders at this point...

FordNut got his next design of the fuel-bowl to me some weeks ago (standing on the shoulders of the designs from Clay and bboomer)...

... and I've have been 100000% percent swamped with my normal/software 9-5 job since April/May.

I don't expect my schedule to change until my software project is done, somewhere around mid/late August.

(Any free time I have right now is spent being shoved out the door for weekend family trips)...

Once I get that software project out the door, I can breathe just a little easier and spend additional time in my man-cave.

Would you be willing to share that? I would like to see it.
