Yes, I used a chevy hydro boost that I bought at a swap meet. Some slight adjusting for the mounting, shortened the rod on the booster and hoses. If I remember the cost was around $100.

In the late 80's my dad ran a chevy that had a spacer between the carb and intake. Which allowed it to run gas or propane.

I used the ez wire in my truck. The quality was great but I think for the extra money I'd go with a complete plug and play harness. I never got my gauges to work. Admittedly I'm not the best at...
