Re: Alternative fuels
On the Topic of Alternative fuels, i'm getting my EB II Fairmont with GT kit and aftermarket 17's fitted with LPG soon. Yes, ToranaGuy has a ford as well! Only bought it recently. The Torana was hit in the rear, and it's going to take ages to repair it. So i bought a EB Falcon. I've always liked most falcon's over commondoores.
I'm getting a vapor injection setup. Basically, the inlet manifold get's drilled to place 6 new injectors, my EB II is I6, and then they hook up a gas tank, mixer and regulator, plumb the reg to the injectors and fuel line, and stick in a computer that works in conjunction with the factory EFI ecu. It's pretty neat and tidy, and goes well.
The car will start on unleaded, then switch to lpg when the water temp is high enough. Usually about 30sec's to 1min before it switches over. I have a feeling it's possible to program it to switch over earlier. As soon as i can afford it, i'm going to buy the link cable and software so i can play with it, ermm i mean tune it :D The system isn't very well known to the public, not a hell of a lot of info online about it either. Parnell is the supplier and fitter, about $3k fitted, and almost 2 day's work. I've got a tech book on the kit here i've been reading, very interesting. Waiting time is about 3wks till i can get the car converted, so i better book it soon hey....
