Did a search but couldn't find an answer.
Question.
An I6 EF fitted with factory tickford LPG.
Can you fit pacemaker extractors or is there no room
to clear the LPG convertor??

Cheers

is yours a facory setup? the factory converter is real low down and has different mounts, even if it fits, it'll be just and you'll have the issue of heat and stuff...

What's the standard power output of a Ticky LPG?

Are they anything spesh or were Tickford just responsible for the conversion?

Fair enough, nah mine isn't factory.
It'd prolly be worth getting a new mounting bracket from an aftermarket set up and having the pipe rebent/set up for it and mounting the converter higher so a. it's away from the heat, and b. can get the better extractors.

if it was anything special tickford probably would have actually had it optional on their own cars lol. couldn't get it on ghias and xrs.
just as gutless as anything else, but you get things like an lpg button and it measures the lpg on your fuel gauge when you swap to gas.

All the Tickford LPG system was is a factory optioned LPG setup, I guess it was just Tickford who organised the R&D on it or something. But it wasn't a performance option or anything.

the lpg system install was done by tickford engineering.
it is just better than a aftermarket install/system, well most.
R&D was done by vialle/omvl AFAIK.

an as said you will have to get the lpg pacies as comps are too big.
