hey guys i recently bought an xf ute that has had an eb motor conversion and been put on straight gas, i have been told by a few people that when i turbo it id be better off leaving it on gas but i have never dealt with that before. if anyone could shed some light on power figures cost reliabilty and what i would need to do to do this would be greatly appreciated.
cheers James

No. I dont think so. Have to get twin converters and pump to keep up flow, and you'll always have the extra restriction by the ring in the intake

depends on how much money you wanna spend really, seen some awesome cars on LPG but it cost them a bucket load to get a good reliable setup and tuning also depends on what type of setup you want, power figure and what kind of boost you want theres pleanty of ways to go but the ways you would want would most definately be stupidly expensive, they'd prob ditch the setup you've got anyway so might aswell go back to ulp :D

Get gas research put on it with 2 converters.

I loved the setup on my maverick. Never had an issue with it running 10psi.
