Hey all,
I noticed that my converter was leaking the other day so its time to get it replaced. I will be getting a licensed fitter to do all the work - but would like to provide my own converter. Currently I have a mixer system (bought with the car) but as I gather funds I want to convert this over to a megasquirt controlled SVI system. Now, i'd like to buy a converter specially for the SVI system, my questions:

1. Will an injection converter work with a mixer ring setup (I have a STAG100 if it matters)?
2. What are good models/brands for converters?
3. Where is the best place to buy converters?

I've looked at http://www.autogas-lpg.co.uk and they seem to have very reasonable pricing, but haven't gotten much further than this at the moment.

Thanks, Thomas.

I can get you a price on Emer, Emma, Landi, Sprintgas under bonnet kits minus the ECU and wiring.

No you can't use an injection reducer in place of your current converter.

Don't have the info off hand. But Sprintgas will help you out with that one.

Ok thanks for that Tickford, I assume those kits your talking about come with converter, injectors plus all necessary fittings/hoses? Also, what would be the (rough) cost of each brand and which one would you recommend?

Thanks, Thomas.
