It will not as the GLT has mechanical injection and the tank will not fit.

The front end could be used on late model 240's with LH2.4
Will fit all LH2.4 740's
all 940's
1.6, 1.8 and 2ltr s/v40 (exluding GDI engine)
all fuel injected 400 series with a change of tank
360 with B200E engine again changing the tank

Thanks for answering that so well for me!

Summary...

It works with cars that have an electronic fuel injector for each cylinder.

It has a torroidal gas tank that fits in a horizontal spare wheel well. It hasn't got a hollow in the centre, so any fixings/humps etc will need to be removed, leaving a flat bottom to the wheel well.

Bump!

This is still available, and this is one of, if not, the cleanest fuel to run in an a standard internal combustion engine, and the fuel is much cheaper.

Iirc, I have a 60 litre tank (filled in torroidal type).

It is for a 4 cylinder petrol car up to 250 bhp, which is why I have not fitted it to my V70 :-(

Is yours a 5 pot also?

Another BUMP.

This is still available, I am open to offers.

It is suitable for multipoint fuel injected 4 cylinder cars turbo or non-turbo up to 245/250 bhp.

At fuel costing only 59 pence per litre, this will pay for itself in well under a year, which is a lot better than solar panels!

Not sure about the brains, but you can fit it to 5 cal if you get another injector. Those look like valtec. They not long lasting ones. Around 20k

No it will not fit a 5, 6, 8, 10, 12 or 16 cylinder engine

It will work on engines with 1,2,3 or 4 cylinders
