From what i've heard propane is not the way to go. Your better off with water/meth!!

yea, propane is extremely dangerous. Too much pane and you could be buying a new motor. From what I have read, mater-meth is a much better alternative but even then the meth is dangerous in large amounts. I'm staying away from drugs with my truck I dont have the money to build a new motor.

well that is enough for me, the overwheelming chance i can blow the motor I stay away. My other question is, Jake I have been looking at getting the roosewood single shot stage 2 injectors, and it seems that everyone is having problems with single shot? Should I wait to see if this programing works out, or just go a head and do it, can the truck still be used everyday without the right programing?

Single shot injectors are very very common for aftermarket upgraded injectors in fact almost all aftermarket injectors are single shots... so it's not the injectors that are the problem, it's the tuning and the chips that that the tuning is being put on. I'm pulling my hair out with trying to get a TS chip with Wildman burns on it to work in my truck, but I'm truly not concerned, Tony and I will figure it out.

As far ar Rosewood Diesel and DIY-injector kits... one word AWESOME! The kit is absolutely great, and the injector build is pretty easy to do once you do the first 2 or 3 injectors. Do your homework on an injector swap if you have never done one before, it's much easier and faster to do the job if you have a solid understanding as to what the job is actually going to entail before you do it. Do lots of reading and look at pictures so you fully understand what your about to get into. I would do the DIY kit again in a heartbeat, I am fully 100% satisfied and impressed with the entire DIY injector job. Now all I need to do is get my tuning straight. Rosewood Diesel gets 2 big tumbs up from me!

thanks, I got to get a bit more funding so I can get the chip when I get the injectors, then I will let you know how it goes. Im pretty close to rosewood, so its going to be intresting for me to do it, first time with injectors.
