LPG injection system

LPG injection system

LPG injection system

(OP)
I have a 1990 Ford F150, with a stock 5.8 EFI Windsor running on LPG and petrol.  The engine is currently very tired and ready to
expire, I would like to rebuild it as a solely LPG engine looking for around reliable 400hp - I use my truck as an
everyday work vehicle also towing   and playing off the traffic lights.
 
Questions?
 
Is it possible to use an LPG injection system linking up to all the current sensors and ECU. If yes can you
           lead me to the specific product and supplier. Close to Australia if possible!!
   
   2.    Can you offer possible combinations using as many parts from the original engine, again please supply specific            
          
         products.From your article sounds like the heads have to go!!

RE: LPG injection system

15psi on an 8.5:1 motor running LPG will net you a whole lot of power. :D :D :D

This book doesn't hold much information, but is more of a picturebook on what can be done. A bunch of the machines in there are LPG with either superchargers or turbochargers on them. There is a nice 250cid Ford inline six pushing 450+hp out of a daily driven falcon, so getting 1.14hp/cid will be no problem. They also have some names of shops in australia (sorry, I don't know the geography well enough to say whether they will be close or far) if you're looking to have a shop do it instead of a DIY project. When I get home tonight, i'll try to remember to look them up and post them.
