    I just ordered propane injection for my PSD today. I will keep you up to date on how this does for me. That will make my little sentence at the sig line all the more true. :D

    The upgrade numbers are as follows.

    80 HP
    66% more torque (150-250 lbs)
    40% better fuel mileage

    along with cleaner oil due to more complete fuel burn

    Bring it on. With the upgrades already done I will have in the neighbor hood of 385 HP and some where between 850 and 950 lbs of torgue. I will have to go dyno it when it is all on so I know for sure.

    That ought to tow just about anything. I hope it does not shorten the engines lifespan though. Keep us informed on how it goes.

    You'll find that with 385 RWH which I doubt you'll see with just a chip and gas. you Will be in the 700-800 torque range at the rear wheels. remember this is a v-8 not an inline. I would go with injectors next. The gas will not shorten the life of the motor as long as it's not mis-used
