Propane + Super Chip =

Can you run propane and a SuperChip at the same time? I was reading on Superchip.com and they said you cant run propane with it. Please tell me ya can b/c if not that will break some dreams of mine Propane+SuperChip=about180more HP!! Right now i have the SuperChip microtuner and am thinking about buying propane injection.

i wouldnt think about running a chip. they really hurt the tranny in the long run. take it to an international dealership and have then reconfig the comp after you add propane.

How can this be? I don't dispute that Ford could have built a better tranny for the SD, but the same tranny as a Lincoln - tell me it ain't so!

I was shocked as well when I first figured it out

You're going to need a very expensive professional rebuild on the tranny to beef it up for that kind of power. Plus an EGT gauge. Also, a full 5 inch exhaust and intake kit. Even with all that, its not going to long last before something breaks.

I run propane and a high hp chip, and am still plugging away without any tranny problems. You won't see that much power improvement, though. The propane is worth an honest 80rwhp, but the chip doesn't add that much on a dyno. The combination chip/propane has added a little over 100rwhp to my truck.

If this is the case, then how come did my 98' f150 (5.4L Auto) have a five speed auto, 4+ O.D.? my 99 350 is a 3 speed + O.D.

Come on man, the lincoln would bareley keep the thing off the ground.

No, your truck has a 4 speed auto with an elec. overdrive.

I think you should have the 4R100.
They have had 4 speed auto's since the first E40D was put out.
