Default Its a steal.

If the kit comes with seperate ECU and stepper motor to control the gas flow its a steal, Lucky you. By the way BRC is in my opinion the best kit in the market and I long for one but at the moment I have the simple StARGAS kit in my GTX which is doing fine for the past three years.

Bye and wear your seat belts.

Well, thats an awesome machine and with a sequential kit.

The one im getting is not sequential...

Mine is a closed loop... something which is called "JUST" system from BRC, which is supposed to be better then a simple closed loop.

It seems the "just" system takes input from 2 sensors, instead of 1.

I hope all this makes sense and not just salesmanship bs that my dealer is giving me.

Please advice, Thanks

Sacrilege!! There should be a law against that. Please don't add an LPG kit to that beautiful machine. Just buy a cheaper hatch or a diesel car for the irrelevant high mileage runs.

Guys,

I have got the BRC sequential kit installed on my GTX. The kit with installation did cost me 55K in total in bangalore. I Did face lot of problems during the installation. the installer cut the fuel injection pipe during the process. Now am running the car with some alternate pipe. The "Engine missing" is also introduced after this due to the incorrect pipe(may be). It is unfortunate that I am not able to get the piece of pipe inspite of being ready to pay the amount they are asking.

There are special LPG kits for turbo-charged engines upto 250bhp in the UK.
A lot many Subaru Impreza owners have them since LPG costs 30bucks(~39pence) compared to the 85 rupees(1 pound) per litre of petrol.
Buttt, I would say steer clear of LPG for the RS. Please!

wouldn't call it sacrilege. Whats wrong in trying LPG in any car ? Only the price of LPG right now is unreasonable. Am sure a man who can afford to buy & keep a RS would not want to LPG it just for cheap fuel.
