Propane Attack!! (thanks Quad)

1st off let me give Quadzilla a BIG "thank you"!!! for all the help and info you provided in helping me set-up my Propane injection system. Man I love this stuff. I thought the truck ran like a bat out of hell before, but now it is awesome. I installed the Power Shot 2000 system with a 28 gallon tank. I had to mount the tank in the bed due to it being too big. I really did not want to do this, but I could not pass up the deal I got on it. Real simple to hook up and install. I still need to tweak the settings to ensure I am getting out of it all I can. It is getting a serious grin factor now. Cruising through town I can only think "who's next"

It states you can gain 2 to 3mpg. It does this by giving you a complete fuel burn in the cylinders. I really don't know yet due to just having installed it. You have a couple of ways to set it up. You can set it up for towing where the Propane doesn't start to flow until around 10psi or you can set it up for performance where it comes on at 2psi. Guess which one I have it set on. . I am learning a lot about it now thanks to Quadzilla. I think transmission upgrades are next.
Hope to get pictures in the gallery for those that are interested.

Your definately going to need some tranny upgrades to hold the increase in power, also if your running a chip, then you will want to be very careful on how much pane you introduce, because more than likely the chip will have some advance in the timing, and with propane, that automatically will advance the timing, so you want to listen for detonation very closely, and don't let the drugs flow to freely until you are sure of the programming.

Any new news on the programming I spoke with you about?
Thanks

I will get it worked out for you one way or another, I am runnig a real sweet tow burn, I have tweaked it a few times and it is just about there, one little shift issue to work out and it will be done, and from there building the extreme is not a problem.
