Gas research on XE 4.1

Hey, i have a couple of questions about gas research gear.
First of all, what kind of converters will work with them? I heard you dont have to get the B2 ones, but the one in my XE is from the 80's.
second of all, What size would be recomended? This is a hard one coz its a turbo motor, will be running a T04 on it when its all up. But could i get an oversized one for the moment to suit the turbo or would it run dodgy?
Thanks to any replies

Re: Gas research on XE 4.1

B2's are usually chosen for their massive flow ability.

I wouldn't trust a 10+yo converter either.


If you have a competent gas installer they should be able to restrict one of the big throttle bodies down to a usable level.... but i'd say it will still supply way too much fuel.

Best off emailing GRA directly. I've found them to be very competent and willing to help find solutions... which is more than most places are willing to offer nowdays.

Just like a Tsunami.
