Wow that sounds like what im looking for!
im gonna research getting the part and the costs.. in the meantime im open to lots more imput on the subject and other variations and vs. the "pro kits sold for too much $$ hehe
There is a reason that the pro kits sell for as much as they do. One thing to keep in mind is that using a lp gill tank is a huge saftey risk. It will also get you in huge trouble if you are ever in an collision(Geting the crap sued out ya can't be worth it). Bullydogs system is junk especially for the money.I talked to a local lp dealer and get dot approved stuff. I just got off the phone with my local lp dealers supplier. He basiclly said to make sure you have a pyro on your motor before you do anything and to keep it legal. Alittle more money spent today can save you alot more later.
I'd get a forklift style tank and brackets sounds cheaper and easier to change tanks about $150 and the lay down bracket is $82. I'd do the rest of the system by buying the parts somewhere else but I guess a local lp dealer could set you up pretty well mine told me around 600 total but the system is designed for farm tractor they called a mechanical red roster(acme is the supplier up in Minnesota). After my talk with him my plans on doing all of this are going to be put on hold. sorry to be giving all this info in bits but I have been pretty buzy and have too much on the the old mind.
Nogo, sounds good but thats to much for a tank and the ones that sit upright have much less risk of letting liquid propane from hose on down..
i believe most forklift use the liquid and have some evaporator / converter built in as they are !00% prop. no diesel..
well Dave, thanx for the info but yer gonna get sued no matter what if you have an accident. if its not the propane it somethin else.... besides i never said i would let the tank tumble arround unsecured or unprotected your assuming allot. you take risks far worse that that every day just driving arround anymore ( women drivin and talkin on cell phones is far riskier than propane setup) especilly the ones in highend SUV's!! hehe
besides i rarly drive the truck , a couple times a month and then its on freeway or off road. thnx
ya i keep hearing that 10 mile figure but dont know or never heard of any one that had a wreck that close to home.. anyway i was beiing sterotypical with the women comment a stab at humor.. and i havent seen or heard of a propane fire
If it was after the turbo, what would you set the propane pressure at.
3 pounds for no boost or 15 pounds for 12 pounds of boost.
Either setting would be wrong when the boost was at any other pressure.
If you do not have it in the "suck zone" the propane will wind up out in the air instead of in the engine.

Im dredging this back up for a couple reasons......
1.)Ive been following it and am seriously considering doing it.
2.)they are all advertised as being for turbo diesels, what Im trying to figure here is if it really matters if its turbo or N/A, bully dog emailed me back and told me their kit would work on my N/A diesel (non ford but that hardly matters in this particular discussion)
any input on this (the turbo ?) guys????
