Scoot, there is a TCTO that sets out the basic guidelines for this conversion, although it was issued for a specific Air Force. Lots of additional manifolds, valves, wiring etc must be added. It is a major mod and the time required for implementation are ruled by parts availability and labor skill and availability.
This conversion would require US Dep. of State approval under ITAR.
We may be able to assist, depending on who the end user is. You may contact me at armando@dd-aviation.com.
Cheers
