Is anyone running propane injection?

I'd like to make a propane injection setup for my 97. Most of the kits look like they are a few hoses, a 12v solenoid and a vaporizer regulator component, I think one line runs from the map sensor line to the regulator/vaporizer, so that once you get 5 or 10 psi the propane flows to the motor. My step father works for a propane company, so I can get the hoses made and order the parts if I had some sort of a part number. The cheapest kit I can find it $270 on ebay

No, it is retarded. Propane is a fuel, it is old school, you can't supply enough fuel you add propane. You have a huge selection of injectors so you don't have the lack of fuel problem. You would make more power bumping up to a bigger injector than you ever will on propane. It is really useless and isn't worth the risk anymore. I knew a cumminGs guy that ran propane and had a runaway becuase of the propane wouldn't shut off as it was supposed to and just kept fueling the truck. Imo, propane is the dumbest thing ever for a diesel.

I've talked to few people that were running it, they seemed impressed with it. I think I once read that propane somehow makes more use of the fuel that your using, like 97% efficiency instead of 80%

I haven't run propane on a powerstroke yet but I did on a couple of Idi engines and it makes a pretty significant increase in power. If I ever get the chance to build a hot rod powerstroke I plan to have propane injection. BTW propane acts as a catalyst that helps diesel fuel burn more complete.
