15-18 psi? holy smokes! That must be mind bending.

Do you have direct injected on your el and how is the engine coping?

How many km's have you done with that much boost, how is it wearing, is it reliable, have you had to do headgaskets, rings & pistons?

Converter you choose depends on the gas mixer/injectors you are going to run.

IE, if your running a gas research gas carby, you might want 2 aussie b2 converters setup to fuel it.

Cheers

I'm running 25 psi every day on a 4.0 au head and el forged bottom end no issues with twin b2's and a gra. Probably the most tried and tested system. I wouldn't bother with anything else really. Nothing has the r&d to back it like this kind of system

In regards to the R & D, yep, plenty of fast bbq fuel cars out there running the gear. Its why I've choose gas research gear for my Turbo Torana project.
