Propane?

So maybe I am oblivious or not, but does anybody have a propane set up and if so, do you like it? If not, why not? It seems to me that would a great way to get some power. Sounds real logical to me. GIMMIE some feedback.

Propane has a reputation of breaking motors in strange ways. Lots of power can be added with more fuel (injectors) and air (turbo) with the right mixture (custom chip).

Pane causes cylinder pressure to spike really high... I have seen some people do ok with it, but have seen alot of other problems as well. Mostly bent rods. I wouldnt recomend it myself....

id run water/meth or nitrous first....

first thing to understand...water alone will just drop EGT's and allow for a little more fuel to be added...or the same amount of fuel to be added with lower EGT's.....

Water/meth (some say no more than 15% meth...others say 30%...others say up to 49% meth) will lower EGT's....add some power with the meth....and also allow for a bit more fuel to be burnt because the meth will help ignite and burn it...

Nitrouse is an oxidizer....which means nitrous burning will add air to the mixture basically, thus allowing for more fuel to be able to be burnt as well, and actually at a lower EGT temp because of the chemical reaction. Nitrous doesnt raise cylender pressures as much as propane.....

Propane is a catalyst.....which means it actually is going to burn oxigen just like your fuel does, only it will use it faster, thus spiking cylender pressures. The upside is ALL available oxigen will be burnt between it and the fuel, the downside is even though it will add a decent amount of power, it can lead to major motor problems........and will do so way faster than the above options IMO....although there are all kinds of different opinions out there...

Well thanks Marc that seems to be a very logical way to answer it for me.. And it makes sense. I wish someone would give me a free set of injectors and a new turbo!!!!
