I found when ever I made a change to the air intake I had to have my LPG retuned.

Also to consider is the fact that LPG backfires. If you have a pod on then the backfire has to travel through the pod possible roasting it.

exhaust then extractors are the next "best" mod to do...

you might need to just re tune your gas a bit after you put a full exhaust system on, but it wont destroy the engine or anything

When it happens you will know, believe me! I have blown a few air filter boxes with backfiring which was caused by a dodgy air/fuel ratio.
