Propane Injection

I am looking for some information on the use of propane injection in the new 6.0L. I would like to use it in conjuction with my power module (when i get it, it should be here soon) and was curious as to if anyone knows if there are any downsides to burning it in the 6.0, and just how much power will the Torqshift withstand without overheating or slipping (i only plan to use it unloaded) I would appreciate anyone's input on anything dealing with propane injection.

The 6.0 and the Torqshift handle the power beautifully. Some have dynoed at about 450 hp with a module and propane. I would think that is close to pushing it Variable/boost proportionate systems come in smooth and steadily increase power as the boost increases, so they are very drive able and really great for towing. As long as you have a module designed for towing, or at about 80 hp they will work very well together and be very friendly to the drivetrain, as it is not a big jolt of power all at once.

I would do a search on this forum, some have said something about it before and decided it was bad Ju Ju with this motor. IMHO
