    Hi there

    My vy 04 run on petrol and gas(non factory).
    Just thinking to rebuild the engine as the reading is 308xxxks. And I'm wondering if I want to go with crow cam, is there a difference between engine running on petrol and duel fuel?

    What parts I'm looking at to get a bit more power? (List please)



    Cheers

    First, have it converted to lpg injection if it isn't already. Secondly, you'll need to have it dyno tuned to suit. Mixer systems often add a significant restriction in the intake.

    You're much better off buying a car that's a v8 on vapor or liquid lpg. You'll be ahead in terms of cost and performance for sure. And economy won't be too much different.

    There will be no issue with camming a car that's on dual fuel, just keep in mind it won't make as much power on gas.
