Re: lpg converter

I think that you need to get a converter to suit your mixer. Gas research sell their B2 mixers for under $200. What kind of setup do you have anyway? Duel fuel or straight?

Re: lpg converter

The only real tricky thing to check is that your LPG in (the copper line) is in roughly the same place.. The OMVL convertors I use (the 5.0l Windors use the same ones) are around the $180 mark
i get mine from here,

Re: lpg converter

I have found B2 converters are supposed to flow up to a Big Block with no probs. If your using a 6 cyl converter as an everyday A to B driving style, dont expect it to be too good when you do mods to the motor. Best to up the type of converter than to under size it.
