But before you start.


Firstly consider what you have already and its suitability to LPG conversion

Added economy & efficiency advantages are always & certainly attainable Using RPi LPG upgrades, such as Optimax ECU re-programming (Efi models) and RP4 cam upgrade. Plus Mallory and Electronic ignition upgrades. After all economy comes from both cheaper fuel and increased economy, or at least curing the efficiency drainage of what little efficiency your engine may have now, especially if its in "High Mileage" & less than perfect shape. "See where to look to find out more".

The following possible V8. LPG Conversion plus engine upgrades would normally Yield minimum 15 - 30% Minimum efficiency and power/torque over a Std factory new or existing engine and vastly more from a less than perfect used engine, (you can use info on our "General info page above" to assess your engines condition, & available improvements.
