Davo, one mob in UK wanted $240AUS delivery for springs. Another wanted $490 . I ended up paying approx $100AU from US via priority international. Struts were $140AU delivery.

I've noticed alot of parts on Ebay they try & hit you up for freight & that's how they offer reasonable prices on actual items. Gotta watch em

um..................liquid injection is only $500 more than vapour. I was given bullsh1t information from a-hole here where I live & also from another. Been like this for years too btw.....how do these nobs stay in business

Anyway, confirmed it all with installer who uses LPG warehouse gear (JTG installs), the "ants pants" of LPI "untuned" can expect about 15wkw more power than with petrol / "tuned" up to 30 economy near that of fuel & capable of higher CR's than fuel too

Only downside with the LPI is I have to use the piddly donut tank so, alot of visits to the servo unfortunately.

Fark there's alot to learn/know.......when I explained I am running aftermarket ECU & trigger wheels etc, he then confirmed it can be run via direct LPI, not duel-fuel bullsh1t!

Not much booking time necessary either! Only a week or two! I thought it would be months, so this is one huge plus.......

Again, until I get the turbo header & gear from OS, I can't do alot of the technical stuff. But when suspension & front-end gear turn up, @ least I can do the undercarriage.

Gotta work out where to put spare now??? Already fitted the amps......I may try & mount the spare where the scuba tank is? What craps me is I can't finish anything @ this stage. The LPI install will be the last thing basically.

Here's just a little something different to wet the appetite of performance folk, helping to explain what I'm really about .........

QUOTE from a recent article:

......Whereas traditional vapour LPG systems turn liquefied gas into vapour form before feeding it into the engine via a venturi in the throttle body, the liquid phase injection (LPI) system takes the gas in liquid state all the way to the injectors -- a more precise method that Ford says delivers improved engine performance.......

sheesh! Tryin to stay up with this LPI stuff.......

The JTG system uses it's own injectors that come with the kits. This means I don't have to fork out for LS2 COP injectors or even run EFI @ all, due to dedicated LPI set up. Just wish I didn't need to use the pidly donut where my spare should be but apparently this has the necessary pump needed.

Anyway, spoke guy in charge this morn & he's keen to have the car as soon as I get it all together, up to fitting the VEMS ECU & harness, then shop takes over. Cart comes home on all fours

Found couple of OEM suppliers in UK US for all the tidly OEM suspension parts like, ball joints, idler arm bushings, Strut boots & bump stops, boot rubber, draglink & tie rod assemblies, expansion tank cap, thermostat & other tid bits......all the pita stuff including the rear flex plate (driveshaft donut) for 1/3rd cost it is here &....heavily discounted expedited freight on most so hopefully gets here round same time as the springs. Bilsteins arrived yesterday

at least yours don't have the hydraulic self levelling rear end to bounce you down the road when the "eggs" fail

Yes, I couldn't bother with that stuff. Yerk! That's why I got the basic 300E.It's much more straight forward & lighter

Couldn't find workshop to assist with the go-fast installs etc. The LPI injection set up I wanted would've been way too exppensive to warrant using. Was between a rock & one hellova hard place unfortunately

Big learning curve though all the same.
