Blow through turbo set up with propane????

I know if you do a blow though set up with a carb'd gasoline engine you have to seal the carb up and replace the floats....but can I do a blow through set up with propane? ....Blowing boost through the mixer, will it handle the pressure?
Has anyone in here turbo'd their propane powered vehicle?

Blow-through turbo propane systems are quite straight-forward. In a blow-through application, the propane converter must be pressure-referenced to the propane carburetor. Some examples:

Turbo 1987 Ford Fairmont Ghia

Turbo Propane 1970 VG Valiant

Twin Turbo 1957 ******

1984 Nissan Skyline R30, Turbocharged & Intercooled

1983 Mazda RX-7 LPG Turbo

Please note that some of the examples do not meet NFPA 58 requirements (e.g., illegally using forklift DOT fuel tank in a motor vehicle, etc.).
