The only issues I can see with that is if the spark cut (rev limiter) cuts in early, and the ignition map will be all wrong too, but that's ok because it's not right for LPG anyway. Both of those issues can be solved with a DIY J3 chip.

And as JAsE asked you on the phone last night, will the 4L EECV cope with running the BTR 95LE as well? It should (if the pin outs are the same), because the shift points are taken from road speed, and load is taken from the TPS.
