Dedicated LPG Intake from BA TO AU

Ok all. This being about LPG and no set area I decided to post in the Garage. What I want to know is . Im thinking of getting my hands on a BA dedicated LPG intake and taking away my current stock intake set up and replacing it with that. The intake is heaps bigger than mine with less restriction's. What I want to know is will my current hose running from the convertor that supplys gas to the intake fit the new intake. I would also swap the airbox lid with an EF LID because of the extra 15mm in diamater and connect the BA intake Flex hose to the EF LID. That should free it up a little but I am wanting to know if you guys think its worth the $70 or so.

From what i heve read most of the Petrol guys with Au's have benifited heaps but i have heard nothing about LPG. Im sure the intake would have to be a btter design being from the Dedicated LPG BA.

I want everyones thoughs and knowledge please i really need to know ASAP. Im thinking of getting is set up before heathcote if its going to benifit.

What about mixtures? If you go ahead with mod it might be worth having it checked.

Re: Dedicated LPG Intake from BA TO AU

have you got a under bonnet pic of a straight gas BA.. I'm intersted but maybe you'll have to throw in for a new mixer or look at getting the BA one.. The problem i see is that the mixer diameter is the same as your current intakes so if you increase diameter of the piping how do you mount the mixer?

Re: Dedicated LPG Intake from BA TO AU

If you are talking about the intake manifold, I'd be surprised if BA fits onto AU.

Re: Dedicated LPG Intake from BA TO AU

I dont think it will. as the intake ports are a different shape because of more valves.
