Incidentally, i have a scissor door kit (Also called the Vertical Door Lift System) for the indian lancer.

I just put in a K&N filter into mine, but i was wondering for it

i am not Kidding Dude ...
My car is fitted with an ECU for the gas kit .. that ECU is tapped into the Car ECU 's TPS ... and it has a stepper Motor which delivers Gas into the Manifold depending on the throttle Pressure .. and that Makes the car go real fast on LPG ... deppending on your settings and throttle input

i do not find absolutely no difference in my car ... My corsa has already Ran 30000 kms in 2 years on LPG ... I didnt have any Repairs arising due to the usage of LPG ...
FE depends on your LPG kit settings

Not sure whether this is the right place to ask this question... How's the GC of Corsa/sail? The dealer claims 190mm, fully loaded does it scrape the underbody on bad roads and speed breakers?

Hey,
I have one of the first few corsa sails. Shes now 2 years old and shes running great! The ride, cushioning and just the way the car completely isolates u is beautiful.
The GC though isnt so good. She does scrape at almost all the speedbreakers. I dont know whether this fault has been rectified, u should check this out. Though i must mention, mine has scrapped about a 1000 times and no problem so far :P
Otherwise apart from the slight sluggishness at low revs I wuold completely recommend the car! I love it!

yeah man the car is just too awesome....and trust me nothing happens ever when this car touches the ground or breakers....you got to be pretty slow at high speed breakers..but there wont be much of a problem as the body is too hard...
yeah sluggishness at low revz is the only screw up...getting a stock filter...might help...
till 3000 rpm its simple cool lovely car...but then you get to feeel the power and catches speed like crazy...

the underbody scraping the brakers has a lot to do with the soft suspension setup in the corsa .. it does have a tendency to scrape the underbody when fully loaded ....however slowly apparoching the bump reduces any chance of underbody contact with the tarmac ...

Haryan, can you publish the make and model number of your LPG kit on this thread? Is it the "permanent" cylinder type? How much did it cost you? Would you recommend it to other Corsa owners? I have a 1.4 SAIL.

Thanks,
sAP
