    I am getting ready to put it on my turbo diesel.
    A friend put propane on his NA 6.2L and he really liked the power, the fuel economy and the lower engine temp.
    He had a very rudimentary system: a propane bottle with a hose to the air box, and he'd open the bottle after starting the engine and had about 3PSI flowing.
    He would get some pining at idle but when he is driving mid range to full throttle it was great.
    He needs to get the setup all complete with the switch and regulator and then he can keep it.
    It's not good for the engine to have propane while diling or just off idle, or at least not 3-5PSI.

    I am going to swap a torbo 6.2 in my rig so would be very intested in what you are doing.

    Piecing it together.
    I will try and find my old post but I posted about it a little more than a year ago and someone posted a setup that costs under $150 if you piece it together, it was on some RV website and he posted a link.
