its an 03/04 and the reason i say 75/100 injectors is because i tow a 12000 lb boat +fuel and supplies and i heard i shouldn't be towing with sticks over 100hp. and i am getting propane injection anyways because i know a guy that will sell it to me for cost

If that same guy could get a natural gas injection kit for cost it would be much much better for many reasons.

i was just saying if you were going to go with twins then you wouldnt really need the propane. and with it being a 03-04 truck they run great with big injectors and a 150 hp injector with twins isn't that big. towing 12k with a good set of twins (62 over a 480) you wouldnt get over 1200* with 150's.

I would strongly discourage you from buying a propane kit. Propane is more expensive than diesel fuel per BTU. It makes absolutely no sense to do this. You WILL get a small increase in combustion efficiency with propane but not enough to offset the cost of the kit and the more expensive fuel.

thats good to know, isn't propane supposed to be like nos, just a shot when you press the button, or is it like water/meth when it comes on at set points

as far as propane goes thats one of those connection things, i get propane for a bit above cost because my dad works for a propane company so i get it for his price about $0.25 per litre

You can do it however you want. I will be doing natural gas injection which is similar to propane. I will actually have it come on at idle and increase with boost.

CNG is still cheaper. And propane is going to get more expensive. CNG will not rise in price for about 5 years.

The only advantage propane has over cng is that you can store more of it in the truck.

I would also consider getting rid of the juice in favor of a pressure box - mp-8 or EZ or Dr. P

because its a waste of time and if you want advise maybe you should listen instead of saying im "buying it anyway"

i have thought about that but i like the on the fly adjustments
The timing of the edge is not as good as that of the smarty. If you want to keep the edge, I would STILL suggest getting a pressure box.
