Help on MTU Natural Gas Generator with GM 5.7L

Hi, i've acquired an MTU Onsite Energy 50kw with a GM 5.7L Engine made by Power Systems International (PSI) currently using natural gas. I wanted to convert this to LP but wasn't sure where to start.

Welcome to DieselPlace
That is a 5.7L gasoline engine.

I've moved your post over to the "GM Gassers" section for more appropriate responses to your questions.
