Think anywere to from the $1500 to 3g mark. I mean the GRA underbonnet kit retails at 1,400, so add tanks, lines and labour and your well over 2g's already!

This might be a fools hope but someone on here said the Aussie liquid injected system could be available within 6 months for a similar price.
If true this would be well worth waiting for as it is superior in almost all regards.

my old man and his boss having been using this injection system on there ba futura for quiet sometime, all i know about it was that they werent going to release until they had the mapping right.. also when installing it the injectors are modified. Anyways, with those new epa laws that came in last year every installer has to get certification for an engine series (well lpg kit) when they did this it got dyno'd and the results where pretty F**k good i must add. mmm i cant remember the figures exactly but the usuage on lpg was only like 1lt above the petrol, and the kw's give or take 2 they were pretty much on par. But guys, when you put the foot down it goes! im fairly sure that alot of other companys would have already released this already! btw the have also done this to an i6 au fairmont, worked like a charm so i was told :|
