Hi Gav, that's tidily tucked in there ain't it! I know bugger all about these things, having only had a BOA for 8 months or so, but virtually everything I know about it came from the guys on here.
Cheers,
Jake

How are you doing the LPG? Injectors? I had LPG on my landy V8 for years, but that was a really simple single (Well, twin, but mixers not injectors) point open loop. Since deciding to go down the Megasquirt route, I'm thinking of using a pair of BLOS carbs, as they're supposed to be only a shade off the performance of multipoint, but without the complication. I've had mixed messages from LPG installers about doing these engines.

Another lovely looking 4i  :mellow:

My mk2 XR4x4 was BOA powered until I took it all apart, it was much fun but hoping  2wd BOA will be so much more  :lol:

Your rear camber is a bit mental isn't it!

It looks so very tidy though, more pictures please!

 I'd like to do a direct comparison between the blos carbs and an injector setup one day. I'll look forward to seeing how yours runs. Good luck!
