Question Best LPG Converter ??

What is the best LPG Converter to use for a straight LPG application for the Clevo. Especially when it is mated to the IMPCO 425.

Also , what is the best way to mount them , flat or vertical against the firewall.
I'm assuming there are gains to be made by choosing a really good converter.

I've been told the E series ELKO is a good unit as it flows 425 HP

Re: Best LPG Converter ??

I have always used Impco gas gear, the current setup i have now on a mild 351 is the 425 straight gas carby, mounted on a thermoquad base, and an "L" gas convertor, from memory it was the biggest they made years ago, but i wouldnt go any smaller than "L".

Re: Best LPG Converter ??

i used to run the 425 carb bad idea they are but you can all decide for your selves, anyways impco makes a converter dubbed the Impco E its a big boy, the flow rates are not much higher than the model preceding it but it was built for the colder areas of america so it has much higher rate of water flowing through it.

Ok so you wonder how this helps in our 40 degree heat right? well it means that when you rev the crap out of it the converter wont freeze no matter how long how hard or how cold the ambient temperature is.

Only prob with the converter is it uses a very heavy spring and you will find it takes a fair bit of cranking to start as u need heaps of vacuum something modofied motors dont have, your other option is to use a primer switch mounted in the highpressure chamber on the converted fed directly into the baseplate.
