ATS Turbo Systems also has a great propane injection system called the Torque Pro 2000. It is more expensive at the tune of I believe 997.00 but it is totally adjustable and can be turned on and off from inside the cab with a lit toggle switch. Also you don;t need to shut it off with the engine it automatically turns off. There really is no downfall whatsoever to propane injection. It increases the lifespan of the engine by making it more efficient and lets the engine burn 100% of the diesel fuel. Therefore a little better fuel mileage will result. Typically a diesel engine only burns about 80-85% of the fuel but with propane it burms 100%
I don't own one yet but this is going to be one of my next purchases after a Tymar intake and from what I understand they are fairly easy to install without having to be a mechanic. Hope this helps out a little bit.

Propane Injection

Our reliability people have recieved 3 engines back from the field that appear (to me) to have had a propane injection system installed (they have the propane fitting in the air crossover). One of them fragged a piston and chucked a rod out the side and the other two have bent rods (the pistons should protrude about .028 above the deck but they are about that distance below the deck, indicating bent rods). You need to be careful -- a chip is cheaper than a replacement engine. If you exceed the design parameters of the engine, you're going to have problems.

Propane Injection

Powershot 2000 is the safest kit that I know of and at a price of only $549, it's alot cheaper than the ATS kit.

chipping a truck isnt exactly easy on it. It makes for high trans line pressure and burns cluch plates quicker. It also makes the engine run hotter by pumping in more fuel. It gets better mileage, but also wastes alot of fuel.

LP makes the engine run cleaner, burn the full amount of fuel it puts in factory and gets better mileage, keeps your trans line pressure at factory, and im most cases - drops EGT's.
