good luck, while in theory the vapour injection system may work, well it will work, its just the ultimate power output I feel isnt up to the task.

Because he knows nothing about LPG.

If the system is set up right you wont see any difference between it and petrol, hell you might have more power.

the only concern i have is the capacity of the lpg injectors i dont know how much they can take

I think the size of the injectors is what LTD351T is getting at. The first set that was tried on an XR6T resulted in it automatically switching to petrol at anything more than 200rwkW cause the injectors simply couldn't flow enough.

The injectors used on some cars like this in the states run 160cc injectors... They are used on alcohol engines also...

Just sit around waiting for some bigger ones to be developed. Keep in mind that 200rwkW can result in more than enough fun on a public road. Power like that is easy to use and even easier to abuse.

The bigger ones are coming. I have yellow dot Kehien's on my XR6T - they are currently the biggest.

Bigger ones have arrived and they began some backwards testing on a 14lb boosted XR6T, it didnt cope with 14lb's however are hopeful that it will work at 8-10lbs. I am going in as soon as I get the green light for the upgrade.
