Do a search and you will find that it has been asked.There is no problems fitting LPG, but you will lose power because of the restictor ring unless you shell out for the more expensive SVI LPG.Tickford motors only have slightly driffent cam and larger valves, other then that its a normal I6 motor!!!

no problems at all.
but do try and get the gas injection if you can find someone who will fit it.
my Ef has done 358000klm with gas since it was new.

I think I brought a car Ford 2000 Fairmont AU 2 ...hope by the End of the week

So I won,t have to worry about the Tickford Engine any more.
:roll:

By the way I seen the IMPCO System it is HUGE ...nothing like my old
Sprint Gas system. Looks like a Turbo system .anyway???
Rick.....gas injection is out of the question just cannot afford it

So only one thing remains to get the BEST DEAL With the LPG Installation
But also making sure ....QUALITY..... is still there.
I am In the west of MELBOURNE....... Melton

Any Input on Good Installations Places would be a Great Help.
