Gas Reaserch install Questions!

Hey guys n gals!

Got questions about the Gas reaserch gear.

I have a throttle body and a b2 converter off a VLT to chuck in my vl

Now i am running an impeco setup at the moment
im going to try the install my self,

Is it just a straight foward swap over?

And if anyone has any pics of the throttle bodys close up soo i can get an idea of the vac hoses ect.

Cheers!

Is it a steel top b2 converter with the gas reasearch red sticker on top? Don't use the plastic top ones, there a little difrent to set up as u need a balance line ect Aslong as ya lines are the same then u won't have a problem swapping them over, as for vac lines they come satandard with 2 vac lines joined up with its self if u get me u don't need to add any more unless it needs a primer

Thanks man now i have a good idea how to chuck it on!

Last question. The water line tht goes threw the original throttle body. Now do i just plug that up or grab a hose and go around the throttle body?

LPG can be tricky to get going which is probably why most people avoid it! Tunnel vision has proven LPG cars including johns mustang which went 8.98 @ 155 and mine 9.73 @ 140! If you want it to work properly? Take it to the experts

Wow those are some crazy times GAS747
I tried it but couldn't get it to work!
i took it down to a place here in western vic suburbs to get it done by a "pro"(not going to name what shop) cost me an arm and a leg to get everything setup straight gas bigger lines computer ect.ect. But in the end after 3 weeks got the car back still not even tuned and with no oil in the car idk what the hell happened there and stupid me didn't check before i paid and took it home (which by the time i drove it home the turbo fried!) car was pinging off its head! Lucky the motor survived!

I'm guessing all the work was carried out by Rapidflow?
