Powertrain Integration (PI) will showcase propane engine products March 4-7 at the National Truck Equipment Association Work Truck Show in Indianapolis.

Display engines in the company’s booth (5295) will allow visitors to see its General Motors (GM) 6.0-liter LC8 propane autogas engine and the recently released PI-GM 8.0-liter LPG V8 up close, with a cutaway of the 8.0-liter intake manifold.

The long runner intake mounts CleanFuel USA’s latest liquid propane injection system, while a Powertrain Integration engine control module with SAE J1939 communications makes the equipment work together, PI says. It can produce up to 339 horsepower at 4,100 RPM with 495 pound-feet of torque at 3,100 RPM and validation for up to 33,000 pounds (gross vehicle weight rating) with approval for on-highway use, the company adds.

Show attendees can experience the on-road feel of the PI-GM 8.0-liter V8 LPG in a Freightliner S2G as part of an autogas ride-and-drive event. A Freightliner chassis also showcases a Signature Truck Systems Linebacker aluminum body featuring a tank crane and other custom equipment tailored to the service and installation needs of propane retailers. Freightliner will display in booth 4947.

The CleanFuel USA booth (5291), adjacent to PI, will host a Chevrolet Silverado 2500 equipped with a propane autogas engine for which PI has calibrated the engine control unit. PI’s newest propane autogas engine package for the medium duty market will be evident in the Propane Education & Research Council booth (5103).
