Default Best/Easiest Valve lube kit to retrofit?

Hi chaps

It's not relevant to my Volvo i'm afraid, don't shoot! Relates to my Lexus V8. It's got a Stag controller, Prins reducer, Hana injectors.

Bought the car with the LPG already fitted, but whoever installed it didn't bother with a valve lube kit.

Just wondering if anyone could recommend a decent (and not too pricey) lube kit to retrofit?

Is electronic or vacuum better? The engine is NA and I read that electronic is essential for forced induction but is electronic better/more accurate in dosing for all engines?

Any input appreciated Thanks guys

The electronic is only really needed with forced induction.

I only recommend the basic vacuum systems for na engines. Use the KISS method. The kits are all similar so go with best fit. Oil wise flashlube is the only time proven oil.

Thanks for the advice Dai, appreciate it. Do you know if it's time intensive to do the job or quite simple/quick?

Cheers

Drill and tap 1 hole normally.
Screw in teh nozzzle
Mount the bottle
connect the feed pipe
Fill the bottle, start the engine and play with the adjuster untill the flow is right.
