    Default Look where I found a 8.1 hiding today

    I guess if you toss on a turbo and dump the EFI they work OK for this application. Seems GM didn't exactly cease production altogether. This thing is a brand new prototype and this is a in the field test unit. PERFECT APPLICATION, and no Raylar Package. Imagine that.

    What's that in? Is it on propane?... hard to see on this antique computer... I'm in wine country here in Canada and they use wind mills that move air over the grapes to keep frost from settling... most are 8.1's on propane but never seen a turbo on one!
    If you love someone set them free, If they come back with the cops...RUN!!!

    Its an emergency engine generator and its natural gas. Its a "prototype" because where its located it would NEVER pass the emissions certs. But because its a test PROTOTYPE its exampt. Of course you have to be somebody that knows somebody to get passed that little issue.
    Using them for turning a aggie fan is a perfect use as well

    Thank goodness the thing is bolted to the floor. Because without EFI it could get into serious fuel distribution issues from the G loads.

    Would be interesting to see what kind of power you could make boosted to heck on propane/NG if there was a high enough flowing regulator...

    propane v-drive....
