Noticed these 2 50th's have been at RPI over the last few weeks, just wondering if you're on here what you had done and how you got on ... views?

DEF is mine. It's having a new LPG system fitted with Mark Adams chip set and 4 branch sports exhaust with some silencing so it doesn't completely deafen me. It's just been through a complete Simon Durant restore, but I didn't get chance to have the running issues sorted first.

I had issues with cold start racing,hot start stalling and misfiring on LPG. I took it to a local specialist who made it worse, so bit the bullet and did the 4 hour trip to RPI. I'm glad I did as they really are the V8 specialists. I hope to get it back in a week or so, but they won't let it go until it's 100% perfect, which is just what I want.

Hi Mike,

I'm talking to Ian at RPi. I've had my 50th since late 1999. She's got a Nicholson Mclaren SGi LPG conversion with twin underslungs, Mark Adams chip (which was set up on a rolling road by him), and the Magnecor leads - all fiited about or over 10 years ago. Currently undergoing a body rebuild at Avalanche Editions in Yorkshire. Next will be a trip to a RPi to get the engine set up tweaked and hopefully exhaust sytem fitted - hopefully for next year which is the 20th of the 50th. Be good to hear how you got with Ian and what you think of the exhaust set up. PM me if you want to.
