propane injection kits from ebay?

Ive been lookin around on ebay and found some propane injection kits that are on there. They sell for around $195 if i remember correct. I was just wonderin what everyone thought about these? It would be going on a 2000 7.3L superduty PSD. I know theres better kits out there, but biggest bang-for-your-bucks speaking it doesnt look too bad. Watcha think?

Could you post a link so we can see the setup you're talking about?

There are several guys in this forum that are running propane that might be able to give you some feedback, but first we need to see which setup you're looking at.

you need to make sure the system you get is set up and regulated correctly or you will get a very big BANG for you buck

Well they may be inexpensive , but are they safe? Do they use the correct parts, designed for propane in automotive use?? I saw one that didn't even come with a fuel lock off solenoid and used plastic hose that would be eaten away by propane in just a short amount of time. The biggest downfall is it will be only an on/off type flow without any way to control it and the parts you use will be modified to serve your purpose and then may not perform propely and malfunction. You may get pinging, which is detonation, and the warning sign of too much propane flow with no way to adjust it and damage your engine.

The Powershot's regulator and design is patented. The variable flow rate, controlled and proportionate to boost pressure, makes it safe and very driveable and very different from anything else you can buy or make. You can adjust it to your particualr driving style or for performance or towing. So while a manufactured system may seem to be expensive, it will work, right out of the box and why would you take a risk with your engine or safety ?
