propane and water meth injection

i just set up propane about 2 weeks ago and love it, better mileage and noticeable power, but want to try water/meth injection can you run both propane and water meth together?

You could end up throwing a rod out of the block.... drugs do that to these motors. I have not seen too many people run both of these at once. I guess you could.

Is your chip set up for propane and/or water meth? I run water only for cooling purposes...

Is propane really worth the money and does it give you that much power.

You ought to get something other then the standard TS tuning.

Why not get a set of injectors? I mean, nitrous is safer to run then propane...

Propane is cheaper than injectors...... It can also make more power without smoking too bad. Water with up to 10% meth is all you can do while running propane unless you dial it back. The meth can give you better control than the propane, its also cheaper to run. The guy from powerstrokehelp.org........ Yes i know, we(the forum in general) don't like him much ran both with nitrous in his shop truck and it did pretty well for 60+ thousand........

for 300 bucks for the kit i'd say it was worth it, my buddy has a 99 with intake ts chip and exhuast when we race im a little faster than him without propane, by about 1/2-1 truck lenght in a 1/4mile, with propane it's about 2-3 lenghts, my mileage went up, my drive to work is 50 miles one way with almost all highway, when i leave my chip alone i'm pulling close to19-20mpg, without its around 16mpg, but i have seen 20.3 on one tank last fall before i did propane and really babying it
