Propaine Help

I have this dam Bully Dog propaine kit. I can't seem to sell it, so I thought to give it a try......Why doesnt anyone run it anymore?

I have two trucks 2002 with int/4" exh/superchip programer. The other is a 2000 all stock with a K+N. Which truck would work best with it ?
Also any sugestions on install and adjusting it to run properly.

ProPAIN is a drug, and cause's cylinder pressures to spike very badly. This causes Rods to exit the block at extream angles...

If you use it, put it on the 2000 as it has forged rods.

Folks are more apt to running Water/Meth over Propane. I've heard some horror stories about propane...(pistons making holes in blocks, HG going to the moon, car-go-boom type of stuff.)

Water/Meth is a much better poweradder, and it lowers your EGTs better...and it's cheaper!!!

They are forged up to 2000 or 2001. It was cheaper to manufacture the PMR's.

Propane didn't hurt my rods at all. The block however cracked in 5 locations!! Cost me $13K for a new set up...
