Hi guys I'm a long time member but this is my first post.
So I have a 122s with a couple of mods, first of all it has a B23ET running straight gas with a V70T5 turbo for a bit of added fun!
Its lowered with classic swede springs (60mm), gas shocks and adjustable pannards, large sway bars front and rear.
The previous owner Rick had posted alot on the forum with this build. He sold it about 14 months ago to me.
So I have done a couple of things to it, I replaced the superlites 15x7 with original 4.5jx15 as the superlites scrubbed on the sway bar and inner wings, installed original cluster, new dash with the radio deleted, gt dash top, reinstated all the side trim and a couple of other things.
Anyway the issue I have is being it's an LPG carb system I have a big issue of it bogging down under acceleration, I dont know enough about lpg and tuning also it seems to be a dying art over here in Western Australia.
So I have been squirreling away part for a fuel conversion, I have a B230f inlet manifold and white injectors 200cc?, MS2 ecu, tank and efi intank pump.
Anyway I have been reading alot of the thread regarding the conversion, what do people do with the inlet manifold and fuel tank.
As I mentioned I have an intank pump from a honda civic which is shallow enough to drop in once I cut a suitable flange for it, has anyone installed baffles in a standard tank? Forgot to mention that the engine is mounted upright and has a t5 gear box.

Cheers Gav
