Hi All

Can I get some thoughts on the best LPG system, re performance for my AU Ford. Currently it's an after market dual fuel system, though with a new top end upgrade, I've disabled the old dual fuel till I can source a better system.

My mechanic recommend I look at GRS, and I've read a bit about Orbit. It would be good if I could use the my old LPG tank and other bits to keep cost low. Money is also alittle tight at the moment

finally - top end upgrade is TF 170 cc heads, street burner manifold, stage 1 cam, 70mm Holley TB, 24lb TF injectors, 76mm pro-m Maf. Custom CAI, performance extractors with 3 inch pipe.

Thanks guys

Experienced feedback very welcomed

What mixer and converter does your current setup consist of? If it's an IMPCO 225 mixer and (L series) converter, i'm fairly sure you'd need to change the converter as the GRA systems use a complex mixer/simple converter configuration.

The other option, abeit expensive, is a proper injected system, which means there's nearly zero loss of power/torque between petrol and LPG.
