Hey guys,

I was just wondering where the best place in Melbourne is to get a straight gas reserach system put into my ef Fairmont 4.0L. Also approxiamtely how much have you guys payed?

I dont really want to do duel fuel as I want to try get the optimum performance out of the Gas as I will be doing a manual conversion soon.


Any help is appreciated and preferably in Sth Eastern suburbs

Cheers,

-Damon

The supposed "gurru" of Gas Research is Terry @ Smithy's in Boronia.

There are a few other places, but him I trust the most. He is always busy though.

You can actually use dual fuel fine with GRA, because they use a throttle body setup.

Yeah, I've had issues with Swift. GRA is now in Perth somewhere.

IMHO Smithys in Boronia is the best, but you gotta book weeks ahead, as he is always flat out. I used to do a lot of deliveries to Smithys for an autogas supply company.

Lakeside Automotive in Reservoir is gaining a good reputation with GRA products.


Personally i would just buy the parts and fit it yourself. I have lost track of how many i've done.

About $3k is reputed to be the going rate.
