I thought the spigots might have been the name for the ends of the cat on which the pipes were connected?

For the mods your doing allright.. just figures anyway... its how it drives which is 9% of the time compared to time down the quater or on a dyno.

Yep - I am happy with it - after driving it over the weekend a fair bit, I am getting used to the new sound and using the SSS to work through the gears rather than just being in drive helps reduce the droney-ness. Even in drive it's not so bad.

The power pickup is noticeable in both LPG and fuel running - so overall I am happy - and the extractors look nice ;)

What style of lpg system are you using??
It looks like a mixer ring from the photos. If it is you may be better to change it to vapour injection
and open up the induction path a bot more.

That's the plan - in October I plan to have an LPG injection kit fitted to remove all the old style setup

Up until the bottom of the 1st page i didnt know (or anyone else know?)it had a dual fuel LPG kit on.. Could explain the slightly low power gain?

LOL - certainly not a performance mod.

All the tuning was done in fuel mode - so hopefully unless LPG running has damaged the engine - it shouldn't be a factor.

I almost asked them to do a dyno run on LPG too - just so I could see the difference

if you're running a mixer ring type LPG setup, the mixer typically restricts the intake quite a bit which will also affect petrol performance

True - I wonder how much that would have possibly translated to in the rwkw department.

Oh well - once I get teh LPG injection fitted I'll get it dyno'd again and we'll see what difference there is.

What does it cost for just a dyno run?
