I have Bosch leads on the XR8. I put them on 10,000 klms ago when the LPG was fitted. After 5000klms I checked the plugs and one of the leads fell apart.

I have never heard of AMR? Anyone got details.

Previously I have run ICE leads without issues.

Thanks for that JETEB6, I'll have to give them a call as I need a set ASAP.
Last night when driving home from watching the State of Origin at a mates place, the Lane had another backfire. Normally doesn't bother me too much as I have an Occy strap holding down the airbox lid at the moment for just this reason, but last night the bang was so big that the strap let go with such force that it actually put a ding in the bonnet :evil: :cry: I didn't notice it until the missus showed me this arvo when I got home from work. Damage done now and i'm not friggin very happy about it. As I try to see the positive in most things, I now have an excuse to get the bonnet resprayed. Paint is in pretty good nick but there are a lot of stone chips and now with a big ding added to the equation, it will be just as easy to get the whole bonnet re-painted. :?
Don't suppose anybody in Newcastle knows where I can get my hands on a set???

Found these Top Gun HD Max 300 leads on ebay. They say they are specifically designed for LPG. Anybody using these?

Or these Top Gun Premiums which also have the LPG stamped on the box.

Not worried about paying the extra to get the Heavy Duty ones as long as they perform better than the premium. But premium generally refers to the top of the line equipment in most cases :? Anyone got a clue on the Top Gun leads?

OK. I looked it up for myself, and I think i'll go the Max 300 set.
Here is the info I found on LPG engines.

I have been happy with the performance of the top guns but not the quality. I.E. the caps came off a couple when checking plugs

A few on here have mentioned that they have used a certain brand of leads for years and that their cars started backfiring, well i don't know about the rest of you but with the older LPG systems (OMVL90) it's a good habbit to change your leads/spark plugs every 6 months or so, this ensures that you have no issues and have a top notch ignition system. Now 6 months may be a bit overkill for some, you may find that the leads are the ones that should be changed more regularly, the spark plugs maybe once per year, i have found though only after 6 months that my spark plugs have carbonised a fair bit.

Of course with the newer LPG systems like SVI this is not necessary at all and backfires are almost non-existant.
