Re: Convert from SU / CD Stromberg to Impco recommendations.

Hi C3H8 None of these cars are typical of North American muscle cars but some variants have racing heritage and are performance vehicles despite their size. None of them are slouches, so to speak, in touring car guise, and this is why they are sought after but with the price of petrol (anywhere from...

Convert from SU / CD Stromberg to Impco recommendations.

I've been asked lately if I would convert some classic cars to LPG while keeping the original manifolds if possible. I myself have a manifold and triple 1.5" CD Stromberg carb setup off a 186 CI XU-1 Torana (classic Australian muscle car). The 202 CI version had triple 1.75" CD Strombergs. So I am w...

Re: Lean acceleration and steady speeds above 50 mph.

I used a Jaycar mixture display years ago, they aren't accurate Please check the PCM and see if it is throwing any fault codes. Lots to ponder, Jaycar unit at least confirms what I felt. Advanced the interrupter wheel 8 degrees on my VN, it went quite well, would like to give the VY more timing, in...

Re: Lean acceleration and steady speeds above 50 mph.

3.8 Ecotec. Ok Kit, fitted by a licensed mate with lots of experience, car had been back to him many times over the years, has always lacked power on Gas. After 2000 kits had to be certified for the car they are fitted to so I am assuming the correct kit was used for the car/engine combination. Mos...

Re: Lean acceleration and steady speeds above 50 mph.

Hi Tom. A couple of questions for you 1. Is this a 3.8 Ecotec V6 or a 3.6 AlloyTech V6? 2. Is this an actual kit or was it a factory LPG setup? Either way, for both questions, being a 2002 model disconnecting the Feedback control is illegal in Australia (I'm assuming you're in Australia but you may ...

Re: 93gmc 7.4 timing

Alot of people don't realise that optimum timing provides the most power and the best fuel economy.

Re: 93gmc 7.4 timing

That is a loaded question and there is no optimum for such a general question simply because all engines are different. If you start with 14 degrees at idle, 14 degrees centrifugal advance (CA), and 14 degrees vacuum advance (VA) you'll be able to work from there. If you want optimum get a fully adj...

Re: intake design for propan vapor injection

Normally choosing an aftermarket (performance) intake means you need to consider the operating range of the engine. While this is still true, EFI in general (and also LPG) give you alot of leeway. In general theory, and real world testing (thus the types of design oem produces), indicate long runner...

Re: Is anyone familiar with HANA LPG injectors?

This is their homepage: http://hanakit.com/lpg/injector/?ckattempt=1 , there is some more stuff listed on that page. This is better, there is a lot more information here. The CUCV in my sig had both 12v and 24v onboard before I swapped the diesel to a 454. A 12v and 24v system will not be the probl...

Re: Is anyone familiar with HANA LPG injectors?

I'm still in the process of looking up info on their products. Their home age only lists injectors and injector accessories. And like I said, I'm interested in high performance, so 60hp/cylinder won't do. Thinking outside the square is the basis of high performance but to think outside the square f...

Re: Is anyone familiar with HANA LPG injectors?

The H2100 looks interesting but with up to 60 HP/cylinder available from the H2001 & H2002 you'd be hard pressed to beat them. Just as a comparison the big Prins injectors put out similar numbers to the small Hana's and come in kits with a reg, what regs do Hana recommend?

Re: Building a fresh 360ci engine for mileage & power

There is always 1 or 2 teething problems with these types of things, it's a pity you have an oil leak in such an inaccessible spot though.
Any pics of the engine in place.
