What brand Gas injection did you fit and to what car. I'm getting interested in gas lately and trying to work out the best setup.

Gas injection seems to be in its infancy. I wonder whether there is a Gas Injection kit for E series or BA series falcons. Gas on cruise and gas and petrol on boost could be good. Just two sets of injectors per inlet

I think $7k is cheap compared to what it would cost for an N/A engine to make 160rwkw to 170rwkw. The bonus is that my off boost economy and driving experience is very good.

The SM+P convertor cost $221 delivered to Dubbo.


Sorry mate im pushing 180rwkw and paid $5500 :D

That is really good for you. It seems you saved more money that I was able to.

I suppose the question is are the modifications to your car legal (have they been approved by an engineer) because as you would be aware any changes to the performance of a car, camshafts, headwork, ECU enhancements etc... (especially if they affect emissions) need to be engineered to be legal and to ensure that insurances are honoured.

If they are mods to an N/A motor what is the cost in driveability and or fuel consumption? I get 450k's for about $40 (depending on how enthusiastic I am) I can drop that a little.

I make in excess of 470nm's of torque at the wheels, I dont know how that compares to the rest of the world.

If it is a Turbo motor that is running and legal for $5500 (regardless of fuel consumtion) I take my hat off to you as that is a fantastic achievement.
