My conversion on Eb included ICE lpg leads. These are not cheap so for Lakeside to fit these they must be good. Other people have recomended them also.

Top Gun have a reputation for ends falling off or connections failing, not good for LPG.

as far a I am concerned, THE best gas leads are made by AMR in Oakleigh. They are stainless steel wound, and offer almost ZERO resistance per meter.

I have put them on two cars so far, and idle has improved, and starting.

The best thing is that they are actualy MADE IN AUSSIE!! :D

They are a bit more expensive than other leads, but well worth the money

Well I now have TOP GUN's on mine..... The bosch ones I have had on for a few years finally started backfiring so I tried all outlets I could and the only ones I could get were Top Guns. When I enquired about them the guy agreed that the boxed sets have a problem and they are no longer stocking them but had a behind the counter trade pack of leads that are made by TOP GUN but are not labled..
Time will tell.

i've had a mega gas aust.system installed on my au3 never changed the leads but was told by the installer its very important to run gas plugs,i've never had a problem,i only change from petrol to gas and viceverser when the cars stationary,but using gas leads would be good insurance.

ICE seem to have a great name & a lot of guys use them with a non resistor plug as recemended by ICE .

AMR Make Gasmaster Leads & they have a long term great name

QLD Ignition leads are great but carry little stock , however they can make to order whatever you want in a range of types & colours .

Thought Bosch were ok , then found on one of our cars the leads showed evidence of crossfiring after just three months !!!!

If you need em fast Repco have Champion LPG leads that will sort out most .

Hmmm but then if the old leads were so bad they overloaded the coil pack , sorry more $$$$$$

Yeah I have gone off the bosch product.

I tried to get them to replace a set that lasted only 20,000 k's and they would not.

Right on the mark i know shane and richy well down at lakeside they also did my car. I also had Micheal from ICE at trade school for an ignitions sytems lecture. ICE are the way to go! 8mm and also make sure you get a set of non resistor plugs due to the combustion level of gas being a lot harder to reach than regular petrol.

Does anybody know who the distributors of the ICE leads are for NSW. I found the website for ICE ignitions, http://www.iceignition.com.au/BODY.htm, but there is no contact info or any other way to request more info on the website :?
I too have been having a few backfire issues and I think it's time to replace the old 8mm top guns I'm currently running.
The ICE seem to be the way to go, but I can't seem to find where you can get them.
Cheers, Mick :D
