Yea Kwik I saw that. Printed out a few pics and keep them with me in my folder at work for some "inspiration" to keep working When you posted the link to it around Christmas i checked out his entire website, pretty sweet set up. I am in the process of making lader bars like his, also. like the idea of being able to preload them, and it's a dirt cheap set up.

Quad, Totaly makes sense what you are saying, I still might play with the housing, but the more I look at injectors I see the same thing you are saying, once you get above a certain size injector they recomend the stock housing also.

Thanks for the insite, once the propane is on I will resurface this and need some assistance on tuning. I was playing around with a 20lbs cylinder the other day, even at idle you can tell a HUGE difference in the way the motor runs, I just cracked the valve and let it flow out the hose, set it next to the air filter and it was crazy, it definetly is a noticeable difference.

Quad...

The PS2K system will be here today or tomorrow!!!! . and It will be installed this weekend so I kinda want to get a head start on the tuning of it. Like what is the base psi setting for it, when to have it start flowing, pretty much everything there is to this set-up. trying to find instuctions off the net, but not much luck.

powershotone is starting off with a positive reputation.
Factory/Stock setting for Powerstrokes is 5psi start time. The flow setting to get close is close the fuel screw completely off, towards the minus, and go back out 4 full turns to start. From that point you can increase it in 1/4 turn increments till your satisfied. Quad will be along to help you I'm sure. Email the manufacturer to get a copy of the installation and adjustment instructions.

The advice Powershotone gave you is dead on. From there, you can fiddle around with adjusting both things: increasing the flow 1/4 turn at a time until you hit detonation when hammering the throttle in 3rd with OD locked out; or lowering the boost "trigger" from 5psi to something lower. Again, the limiting factor is detonation.
If you're happy with the additional power at the default settings, don't push it, but if you want to get as much out of the system as possible, here's where mine is set right now: since I run at 3.5psi @ 2000rpm, I've got my "trigger" set at 4psi. I've got my flow screw out 4.5 turns from lightly seated. At WOT in 3rd with OD locked out, I don't detonate. Moving the "trigger" to 3.5psi, or backing the flow screw out another 1/4 turn, and I would. I'm living on the edge. I wouldn't recommend that, but it's your truck.

Thanks Quad. Exactly what I was looking for, real world tuning. Will have to wait now till it is on and full of 'pane so I can test it out next week

Enjoy your tinkering, but proceed with caution. As it was stated to me by Dale Isley when I was first starting to mess around with my system:
'With propane, there are no little mistakes."
