LPG conversion on 1.9i?

Postby mattydubster » 26 Aug 2010, 07:33

Hi people

Seriously considering an LPG conversion but have trawled these pages and not seen anything on converting an injection.

Anybody know of any drawbacks/problems??

Cheers

Is it a USA market vehicle? ie "Vanagon" or Swiss? Engine code please :wink:
No issues, same as converting a 2.1 MV/DJ injected engine...

Its not quitethe same as a 2.1, the AFM is a much smaller diameter at 60mm along with the throttle body, we have to make custom fittings for the 1.9FI as they are not available off the shelf.
