You can try searching around, but i dont think anyone on fordmods has done it, or they just havent told us. I tryed asking this aswell and didnt realy get an answer. So i went for a Gas Reaserch Australia set up.

Turbo Taxi, he's been on ehre before, but seems to be a big poster on fordforums, as his name suggests he turbod an lpg running extaxi.
i've got a guy who comes into work with an NC fairlane with a supercharger off a mustang V6, DIY job on duel fuel and he's got no issues.

i am under the impression that all i really need to do is to put boost pressure into the converter and all will be well. any other considerations ?

Depends how much boost your running, might have to get duel converters if your current set up can't provide enough fueling.

downloaded the impco catalog the other day ( thanks luke ! ) and had a look in it. there are somemixers that are madefor turbo setups, and can handle 75 psi ! the other option is a simple mixer. they will cop asmuch pressure as i can provide. :P
