I've had the Powershot2000 system on my truck for over a year, and am impressed with the amount of additional power it provides. The installation is relatively easy, once you determine the tank size/location, etc. There's a true 80hp increase on a dyno. The cost of propane itself is well under $.01/mile, so the expense of operation isn't too bad.
The downside is if you have it set too high. Serious damage can occur if safe limits are exceeded. Bent rods and cracked pistons are a few of the potential dangers.
If you decide to install a system, let me know, and I can walk you through the initial "dial in" procedures.

I've looked and never been able to see Quadzilla's truck. All I get is this little square with a red dot in the middle.

Thank you very much for your input guys.
I will probably get propane injection after i get injectors and sell my edge products, and get a chip that will work with the injectors.

Thanks again,
Ford Power

Just so you'll know what to expect..... If you add propane injection to a truck with stock injectors, you get a big increase in power. After adding aftermarket injectors, the amount of incremental power from propane is lower. Most of the people I know see injectors and propane as an either/or proposition. Few run both, though it's been done.

Before you invest in another chip find out if yours can simply be reprogrammed. Save a few $$$

From Quadzilla: "If you decide to install a system, let me know, and I can walk you through the initial "dial in" procedures."

I have driven ford diesel trucks since 1983 and made many modifications on them. I have never used a propane injection yet. Due to my business, I tow RV's very long distances. I have a 4" exhaust, cold air intake system (K&N), Superchip Trimode Tuner and a full gauge system on a 1996 F250 4x4. My mileage is only 12 mpg towing and 15-18 mpg empty (automatic, 3:55 gears). I have access to a complete used Bully Dog system for a 7.3 PS. Would this be a good addition to my towing package?
