Propane Injection for Gas Engines

I want to get more power from my beater '89 Grand Prix or blow it up trying (either way, I don't really care). Would a line run from a small bottle to just before the TB make a difference? (Think of it as redneck NAWZZZ) Hell, would it even survive? I know propane injection really raises exhaust gas temps on diesels. Would my 2.8L hold together with a little "spray"?

Do research, google etc. Propane has been used on gasoline engines before...

Yeah, all I'm finding are golf carts, forklifts, and those natural gas/propane cars.

From the research I've gathered, propane in a gasoline application will really only increase the "octane" level of the engine. It'll let you run an engine that needs 110octane on like 92 octane or so. Mostly used in heavy nitrous applications or high boost applications.

propane on diesels is common.

Ah, so nothing gained from having additional combustable gases in the chamber?

Nothing much more than a heavy rich condition.
