2 cycle oil in an '07

Hey everyone, I'm new to the site and I've been reading over it for a few days. All I got to say is you guys are awesome. My question is can you run 2 cycle oil through a 2007 6.0L? I seen where alot of people are doing it through 6.0's but in earlier year models. Since it's an '07 I didn't know if it already came equipped to properly handle the ULSD. I just bought the truck about 2 weeks ago. It has 30,5k miles and came with a Bully Dog RFI Intake and 4" exhaust turbo back with a cat and muf. I'm sorta new to diesel's, I had a '06 d-max that I bought brand new but got rid of it during the diesel price raise of '08. Any advice would be much appreciated!

I haven't heard of any issues with any year 6.0L running TWC3 rated 2-stroke. 1oz per gallon has been the quoted ratio to run.

Re: 2 cycle oil in an '07

ULSD doesn't have the lubrication properties that helps maintain injector life. I found that the truck responded much better and seems to quiet the injectors somewhat. For $11 a gallon at Wal Mart it's cheap enough to try so you can hear the results yourself.

The OP asked about 2007 ULSD compliant vehicles...
