Smile anyone using Gas Reserch on xr8 220

HI All,

Well the decisicion is made the AUII xr6 is going after about 11 months and 75,000k's and I have ordered my new xr8 ( can't wait) any way I will be putting gas on it and am just wondering if anyone uses the gas reserch system. while a little more expensive I have heard they are the best for this type of car.
also If anyone is running this system have you done any other mods and what sort of r/w power do have?
Thanks in advance

Ed

Ive got a better, less restictive system if you are interested?

Ive been running my EECIV 351C XE ute with dual fuel for the past 8 months now. Ive made my own mixer which on back to back runs on the dyno only lost out 7hp at the peak compared to petrol and about 7-9 hp in the mid range. I use a dual feed OMVL mixer.

I have finally(waited 3 months!!) been supplied the stainless feed tubes and will soon test some smaller versions (60 and 65mm) for milder applications before machining an initial batch of ten. They are made from solid 6061-T6 aluminium and fit inside 90mm tubing.

Pete.

Tickford Gas

What is Tickford Gas then? Is that the official Ford Gas system, or does the normal Falcon get a different one? My AU1 Fairmont has Tickford Gas along with the bodykit etc. I only have a normal V6 so does it differ from the normal Falcon Gas systems?

Do you really have a V6?:bwhoa1:, that would be an interesting mod. Or did you mean an Inline 6?:oo1:

the gas conversion system as fitted to all falcons is performed by tickford, that is why your gas sysem has tickford compliance plates

My I6 is a non-Tickford system (grrrr) unlike the Gf's EL which is. Funny thing is she gets awesome economy and I get SFA hehe. I must say though, the Ticky LPG system seems more integrated IMO - ie flicking the switch from LPG to petrol and vice versa in the GF's car is seemless - can't even tell. With mine, it's like it's giving it a big bott up the arse - I've also heard loud bangs, which I think is something to do with the airflow through the airbox perhaps. Might even be the balance line or something - I doe no !

Cheers,
Steve

Your girlfriend gets awesome economy on her EL? Does she drive like a typical woman though, hehe, no offence? I agree that it is good how it is integrated, with the trip computer as well, I get the word LPG light up next to my km's remaining. I get the worst economy though, around 18-20 litres per 100km's, so I only get around 350km's from a tank. I guess driving in traffic for work doesn't help, but it's lame how they claim it to be lower.
