landybehr Posted May 29, 2006 Share Posted May 29, 2006 Hi there, a friend owns a 110" 2.5D and is biased to drop a V8 into it for the reasons mentioned in the other current thread and for the sake of comfort/silence/power. And it will be with automatic gearbox then! Point is, that conversion does not make sense without having it running on LPG. Fuel costs otherwise would simply be prohibitive. Preferably the costs for the whole installation recouped by selling the 2.5D (which might be realistic without considering LPG. An old 3.5 Efi RangeRoverClassic can be bought for 600pounds over here. Mileage is 150.000 then). Now we have a few questions: 1) there are a few different LPG-Systems around. The cheapest is the venturi-type. Is that ok to use ? (the more sophisticated systems are pretty expensive over here and the MOT/TÜV will only accept systems that were installed by a garage ). 2) should the engine be Efi or carb ? 3) should we seek for a 3.5 or 3.9 ? 4) where did you put the tank ? (it is a hardtop-110, ex-MOD) MAny thanks in advance !! Hendrik Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
