Word has it that fuel will rise to $2 a litre, I like my cars a nice size eg:BA FUTURA, now im thinking converting to gas, but they make a pig out of your performance, (ASK NSW POLICE FORCE WITH THERE BA XT GAS GENERAL DUTIES VEHICLES)

If its possible to turbo a gas 6 cyl I6, then why havnt we been chatting about such an IDEA ?

I think GAS has a lower BANG rating, but it would be a nice setup, even just a mild setup just to give a gas I6 a bit more oooomf,

Thoughts and ideas appreciated

Ever fdriven a BA Egas? I reckon they pull harder off the line than the petrol ones!!!
There's heaps of turbo gas Falcons about.

lpg actually has a higher octane rating the fuel, and can be a very efficient way to turbo a flacon due to not needing bigger injectors, fuel pumps, and even aftermarket ecu i think.

i think gas runs a bit over 100 octane... so that's always good. Gas turbo would be a good project.. might be a bit of a pricey setup tho.

yup retarded base timing. nah only had the 4psi spring in there but only because i was having heating issues because of still having the original radiator lol and no thermo fans. will be sorted by xmas tho. pics are hard for me to get but the converters sit exactly level with the motor and the lines are hidden in electrical condute. looks neat as.
