Hey guys just wondering i bought my VR today its got quite a bit of things i have to do to get it right but all the basics are fine,

I just wanted to know how i can check if it has a power chip in it? because the guy who sold it to me said it has one and im just wondering where to look just to make sure.

Also its LPG, how much would i be looking at to put it back to petrol, seeying as even though it would be saving me money im not really fussed and the fuel gage kind of plays up having it on LPG as well as not getting as much Kms and power as with just petrol.

And lastly just wondering what site I can go on to find parts as it will probly need a new auto transmission box, a new odometer as it just recently stopped, and probly a new dashboard in general as the fuel gage and the cold/hot gage is fried.. other than that the car has been serviced, has 4 new tyres, runs really well and has no noticeable problems except in the inside of the car, payed $2,500 but got 1 years REGO and the roadworthy its a 1993 vr exec, few pics below (sorry its night and dark but better than nothing!)







Thanks for your help guys!

haha cheers, nah isnt an x-cop car because i bought it off a mate who had it for 6 years then he bought it off some old woman who had it since it was brand new so there you go lol,
anyone know any cheap places to get the LPG taken out and completely removed, and also any places for after market and good looking tail lights? looking to get different lighting on it because theres so many commodores out there and i want mine to stand out :p also the odometer is fried and stuck at 235648 and wont move as well as the cold/hot temp gauge and the fuel gauge is a bit dodgy cause of the dual fuel system.
cheers guys :)

looks clean champ ,

in regards to your questions

1, no such thing as a "power chip" . you can get memcals with edited tunes on it , only way to check would be to open the ecu and see if the memcal has a sticker on it saying someone has tuned it

2, no idea , probly like $500-600

3, Try ebay or wreckers (depends on where your from)
