I would go a different route... Turbo, maybe save for injectors... Just say no to drugs unless your drag racing.

Maybe Water injection? I love mine, almost free to fill up, give about 40hp with 40% meth... I should let you barrow one of my chips. You might be happier with a new chip rather then the bully dog... Give me a call next week if you want and we can get together... I really love my water injection.

CSIPSD, thanks for the input, a new turbo is on my list mostly because I tow alot and that dam surge kills me, when Im climbing a grade and have to get out of it because of the turbo, I get a little pist. What chip have you been most impressed with, I am mostly concerned with towing.

I run Tadd's tune's at Elite Diesel, Have run everyone else and his stuff works best for me... I have a DI chip you can try for a bit if ya want. Let me know!

I dont like pain because it is hard ON EVERYTHING... Rod's, bearings, pistions...

You cant control the injection timing...:Thumbup: Not to mention it costs about $2.00 a gal or better...

Propane in my opinion is not a good route:badidea: , things that come to mind is that cylender pressures are really high and will stretch head bolts also put alot of abuse on rod and crank bearings, the other thing is that propane is over $2.00 per ganllon and diesel is almost 3 in some areas so when you use it you just raised the cost of operating more than a good set of injectors if you dont go extreme, for the same price of the Propan kit you can get the turbonetics torque master turbo with a 91mm compressor wheel BWD sells them for $1200, or better yet the stealth HPOP will give you good realiable power for alittle bit more, i was reading about 4cstr, a member here at the garage put that on with stock injectors stock turbo and some good tuning made 333 HP and 697 TQ, look around before you commit, call and ask lots of questions.

What documentation do you have to support this statement???

Elkhuntr.

Do a search on propane injection, and once you sort through the opinions of those who have "heard" of things but dont have any actual experience using a product, you will find that those who have propane injection, love it, use it all the time and have used it for many years/miles successfully. It is not for everyone, but for those just looking for extra power (around 80 hp or so) for towing and fuel economy..........it's hard to beat for the price. The cleaner oil due to reduced soot is an extra bonus. Then again, you could spend in excess of 10k for other items and their supporting modifications.

I would get a custom tuned chip first.
1 It will add more power than you could with drugs
2 Its always on
3 Its proven safe technology

OK Boss... It is a Known Fact that ProPAIN raises CP's, as does NO2 and Water-Meth... No guess work there. No one is talking about spending 10K, Who's making things up now? What I am saying is get a well tunes chip, maybe water injection and you will be MUCH happier in the long run.

As far as the soot comment, I have seen many trucks with proPAIN come in for oil changes with oil as black if not worse then a truck running a set of injectors.
