Yeah the old EB trans struggles, but still behaves well enough - I have a spare from an EF with 129,000k on it.

Hi Froudey - I think I used to talk Dubbo and the Ford car club on AFF with you?. Was a long time ago tho! The guy there seemed decent, I cant really comment on the tuning, he only dynoed my car. The workshop was clean and well set up if that helps.

yeah i understand how boosted LPG setups work :)
but just never seen one with a mixer ring.
do you have any pics of the ring itself?

im wondering if i could get away with using the mixer ring with say a B2 or impco converter :)
would be much simpler and easier to setup

No I dont have any pics of it sorry - its the same ring that was in it as a taxi I think people call them "BBQ rings"it sits in the blue coolant hose just in front of the TB, I had to grease it to get it in there lol.

Is there a make/model stamped on the mixer ring anywhere? Don't tell me its a 225 or something like that... :lol: I've only really ever seen and worked with simple converter/complex mixer boosted setups.
