Wink NA LPG Question, EA dash question

Hey guys, just a couple of questions I've received that I would be more confident putting in your capable hands:

"Hi Jack_Travis
I've got an NA Fairlane on Gas and and am after some help,
i am wondering why my cold air intake has to be blocked off to prevent the car from stalling.

Thanx"

And Q2:

"hey JT,

I have a '92 EBII and i was wondering if u know, can i take a digital dash
(the dial section) out of an EA Fairmont and swap it with my standard analog
dash?
Thank you 4 your time, much appreciated mate"

Regarding the second question, I would have assumed that the answer is yes, but I'm not 100% on it.

a) Is in factory fitted or aftermarket gas; I know gas engines need to run a little hotter but this sounds strrange.
b) Not that easy at all as the digital dash has a different wiring harness and top of that you are talking two different production series. It would be a challenge and you need the wiring diagrams for both cars.

Regarding the second question, I suggested an NC II digital dash might be easier to work with - plus it has the necessary automatic power mode, etc lights...

??? and Yep

Well it depends if on the system.Some use a balancer tube to push air on one side of the convertor,thus keeping the diapharm central when it has positive pressure applied from the ram air on the other side.The ram air,cold air can cause a lean concern which will cause it to stall or go the other way rich and cause it to push or suck ,as the gas comes in with air flow and the more air that is pushing past the mixer the more fuel will be applied and thus stalling can happen as well.This depends on the system used too.I would be taking away the cold air or ram air and then seeing if makes a difference.The best bet is to take it to a qualified gas tec and he can modifiy(if he know his stuff) the LPG system to run with the cold/ram air.

Brent 79 has done that exact swap he might be able to shine some light on the subject.
