Smile Propane Injection Systems

I have been trying to reseach information on Propane Injection System for a 6.0L Diesel. Does anyone have any experience with these systems and any suggestions?

This was under your post when I opened it. Why do you want to try blow up your motor or tranny? I just don't understand guys who want to drag race a 4 ton towing vehicle, I guess. My truck works fine w/out all the stuff that shortens its life.

I was looking into the propane injection systems. I wanted to look into the pro's and con's of the system. This made me stop looking.

There are plenty of ways to add power to your rig a lot safer than propane. If you do install it...you may look like this----------->

Thats the beauty of it. You don't have to understand it. Just respect that its thier choice.
My (7.3l) PSD is pretty much bone stock, because it is used for our small business. If it has any down time, it is a serious inconvenience to us.
However, for some people they want a vehicle that is different, and they aren't as worried about longegevity or reliability - I know, I have been there (not with a truck mind you).

How different is a 7000lb diesel truck that is quicker than a Mustang GT?

Ya gotta remember, you'll be burning 2 types of fuel so the MPG needs to be figured with gallons of propane burned too. Propane is a much cheaper fuel too! I don't know if the cost of initial setup will ever be paid for by a propane system...and longevity could be an issue as well.

Maybe PSD 60L Fx4 will chime in and I haven't seen Choctaw Bob or Bighoss550 around these parts in a while.

Propane injection/fumigation when used properly is a very safe and effective means of increasing torque, horsepower and fuel ecomony.

commonhack,

We are MSD digital propane distributors. I feel it is the safest available and has the most capability to get you MPG without causing the engine any problems etc. They are set up with countless safety checks etc. Check it out at their site, MSD.com if I remember correctly.

MSD is a GREAT system.

I have been testing it recently, and it makes great power on a totally stock truck (with great drivability) and stacks for ridiculous power with the CORRECT tune.

What's the CORRECT tune to stack it with. I have the SCMT 1704 and had been looking at getting either water injection or propane in the future. I believe you mentioned before that the 1704 was made for stock trucks and I'd need a custom tune if using water or propane injection.

Correct.

The 1704 will not be ideal with propane.
It may make more power, but propane requires a different injection timing curve (and fueling rate) to make max power.

That's "proprietary information".

LOL

My best advice is to go through an SCT dealer with propane experience on the 6.0L

Get yourself a custom burned flip chip for the propane. Go with a Jody Tipton or a Tony Wildman chip. Those that don't understand propane are usually scared of it. Do your homework and you will be fine. I have been running Propane for awhile and not have any problems.
As far as racing a 4 ton truck, there is just something about the looks on the faces of unsuspecting people when you leave them in awe because that 4 tons truck just smoked your A--.
