frmo what i've read the kits seem to be pretty modular, so it would be good to look into it.
i wouldnt mind spending $600 on a vapour injection kit!
i just spent $500 on gas research stuff lol

Being a sub $600 kit - it has it's limitations.
Being in Melbourne, you can speak to the installer in person - for me, he was very helpful with support.
He obviously must be giving compliance with his installs.

It would require a fairly big converter to handle that sort of power.

no single converter will handle that much

I thought the prins stuff did 250rwkw? Anyway, it would be much easier to achieve it with 2 smaller converters, and possibly easier to put them in the engine bay.

Hey Guys.

I found this on Ebay. What do you all think?

[urlhttp://cgi.ebay.com.au/BRC-PROPANE-CARBURETOR-Replace-LPG-Mixer-Like-IMPCO_W0QQitemZ160410133213QQcmdZViewItemQQptZAU_Car_Parts_Accessories?hash=item25593062dd]BRC Propane Carburetor[/url]

Looks interesting.

It looks good for a smaller engine, but only supports "over" 200Hp the add says. The Impco is rated at 237Hp, and to 5psi of boost. I wonder how much "over" 200Hp it can support?

I think it's a little too small for a ford 4lt. Maybe 2 of them would be ok, and they look like they would take less space then 2x impco 225's.

Cheers

yeah ive seen them before.
they also sell a venturi style gas ring that really isnt a gas ring lol
its basically like the centre bit out of a gas research throttle body that you add into the intake before the standard throttle body and its 3" in size.
you just need a complex mixer or a good stepper motor system.
i was going to buy one, but my main battle was being able to handle boost and doseing ( i just cbf fitting up a BOV lol)

I have seen a couple of mixer ring lpg setup's being turbocharged with success, but i think there is less margin for error with one compared to a GRA or impco setup.
