I put the converter where the washer bottle is and moved that to the other side. Keeping the vapour line short for max throttle responce.

Air intake runs through the mixer, not the converter.

You have a venturi mixer. It sits inside the air ducting where the vapour hose is.

This is my engine bay.

I think you will find that you are using a different LPG setup than Flash and myself.

Our IMPCO LPG gear uses a simple converter and a complex mixer, where I think you have a complex converter and a simple mixer (gas ring).

On the right hand side of your engine bay is your Converter.

If you look at my pic up above, the converter is mounted on the strut tower and the mixer is in the air intake piping.

Cheers

cheer's guys so is this a shyte setup i have? it doesnt lack any balls between gas and petrol it seems to be a bit more rev happy on gas and same amount of torque.
relocating the converter to the left hand side under the airbox and putting a shielded pod on might be the way to go in terms of looks

You can start by running the water (heater type) hoses around the back of the motor...

They are from the picture. You probably have replaced the thermostat. The original needs a hole drilled into the bottom section to allow flow at all times.

This looks like the old poliouto converter used as dealer LPG installations. so if this is the case, its very old. Older converters sometimes had a tendency to play up like that. I would update the converter as its recommended to do so every 5 or 6 years anyway.
