im seriously considering putting an LPG set up in my car
i was just wondering if the lpg will f**k up my K&N filter and injectors
also with people that have got it done to there cars is there noticeable power loss
i also heard turbos run better with gas, less detonation or something

i got basic lpg system on the EL and it runs sweet as with no real noticeable loss in power - trick is to get it tuned properly

but it will most definately f**k up your injectors if ur a lazy tight a** like me and dont run it regularly on petrol

I'm wondering how gas goes on supercharged or turbo motors.. pretty well I'd imagine since the air force would compress the gas as well and the over all mix would have a higher octane meaning you could advance the timing a smidge.. (also known as a bee's d1ck)

TurboTaxi swears by the basic mixer-ring LPG system on his turboed AU. Yes it was a taxi, now has 900,000+ km up. When I get my Raptor kit on & the LPG side sorted I'll post up results & pics.
