Propane Injection?

Hey everyone,
I have 04 F350 6.0 with the Bullydog power pup downloader. When i floor it black smoke justs pours out of it (which is good). My question is if i get propane injection will it make the black smoke go away or just get heavier and darker. I know the propane will make it faster.
Just wondering want would be the affect of it

Any help would be great, Thanks greg

Seems unlikely that adding even more fuel will make it smoke less, though some have said that propane makes for a cleaner burn. Maybe somebody running it will chime in.

I have a Diablo flip chip and Powershot2000 (propane) system.

If I get on it hard with the chip set to performance setting and pane turned off I make a lot of black smoke. Repeat the above with pane turned on I make less smoke.

Propane workes by improving the efficiency of the burn. Since black smoke is mostly incompletely burned fuel it stands to reason that burning more of the fuel will decrease the amount of smoke.
