  • Holy Quiet Injectors! Is this thing running?

    Took my truck on it's maiden voyage with the V3 installed last night. I went to stop at the 1st stop sign after the system went into automatic, and my engine died. Instantly I thought to myself, "Crap, I just made a $4k mistake!" But then I realized my engine was still running and the injectors were just that much more quiet! I had read in a different post that running WVO makes your injectors more quiet, but I had no idea it was to this magnitude!

    With that out of the way, just want to give DFA a thumbs up on a well thought out system that integrated very well with the rest of my truck. Great job guys!

    Haha...almost doesn't sound like a diesel anymore does it?

    I too was amazed how much quieter it is when running on oil. Almost makes it too loud when it's running on #2...LOL.

      I have a 7.3 which really doesnt change that much, as far as noise output, But I cant wait to get my wife a 6.0 (V3ed super quiet) Excursion as our family truckster.

        $4,000 mistake?


        Buying the V3 would be the cheap part... fixing the motor would be the $$$.

        My 7.3 is quieter... but without an exhaust on the truck, it doesn't matter

              I agree. With my 7.3 it is noticable but not by much.

                  yes quieter, a little... but it smells different, a couple of days ago I was on a two lane blacktop in heavy traffic and I started smelling diesel real strong, I'm thinking great whats leaking now? A couple of miles up the road I see a stake bed dually pulling a trailer make a left turn and he's dumping fuel all over the road as he turned, I bet I was grinning from ear to ear.

                    Same here. My 7.3 is pretty loud with my exhaust and I love it. You can hear whistling and all that good stuff. Those new 6.4's are super quiet, so I wonder how they sound on oil?
