Impco 225 are not bad on a stockish 6cyl. 425's flow a fair bit more fuel, might be a bit much for a stock 6cyl, were used on v8 car's usually.

Impco converter quality, I have never come across a bad one, but like all mass produced items, there will be the odd failure.

What is a mga mixer? Is it anything like a 225 or 425? Or is it just an amos ring?

Cheers

mine has a wade cam, extractors, hi flow cat, mandrel bent exhaust, K&N filter, XH snorkel, Tickford motor. i think it the most powerful the setup will get. don't get me wrong, it goes well. but the petrol goes alot better

You can always make a gas car more powerful, and most of the same mods you do to a petrol car work in the same way on a gas car. However, as WildEB says, the gas mixer is always going to be a restriction.
