wanting to convert

hey guys, i have a 2000 E-450 shuttle bus with the 7.3L and 202k miles. I am wanting to convert it to run off WVO or SVO for the reason of being a traveling band, fuel costs are outrageous for this bus, but the run it has inside is amazing! Now i pull a trailer with this so i have room to haul equipment for this process around with me. I just dont know where to start even looking besides here on the conversion, so any info would be awesome. Are there kits you buy for the conversion or is it all piece together? and is the job a DIY or is it a shop job. I have pretty decent mechanical knowledge so installing shouldnt be a problem, just wondering if you guys have done the work yourselves on it. Anyways, thanks for reading and helping out!

I installed the vegistroke in our F250. Pretty straight forward. It was a lot easier than the greasecar in the Mercedes.

Try GoldenFuelsytems.com . They have some great kits specially made for your vehicle. You can install it yourself or they have dealers nationwide that will install it for you, they priced my Excursion out at $3000 .
