You wont get much at all if any.Because they suit the setup the car whih it comes from.Unless you get bigger or similar valves, exhaust,fuel reg,etc.You are better off waiting for the capa eliminator switch when ever that comes out or even go a chip or a aftermarket computer.Trust me your standard computer will do fine unless you go forced induction.

only difference a lpg tickford ecu has over standard really is it has 4 maps instead of 2... eg

ULP - econ
ULP - normal
LPG - econ
LPG - normal

great if you have a LPG and can figure out how to switch the ecu over to LPG mode as shift points for auto are better suited to LPG

basically the tickford lpg ecus are stock ULP (normal ecu for gli etc) plus they have LPG maps as well that are switched somehow by the fuel selector switch.....

Tickford clain that on a normal aftermaket LPG EF-L Falcon 6 puts out 133 Kw on tickford LPG (factory) they claim 150Kw... on ULP they also claim 150Kw cos of the restriction with the added pluming on the intake etc.

I had an EL on tickford gas and there was no difference power wise between both fuels so was pretty good. If you could get the same advantage with an aftermarket system that would be pretty good
