Yes the Sprintgas system is what the 'snorkel' there is off. I have had this fitted to two V8 Holdens and they work well.

Yes, they are a verry good mixer, ive got one on my 253, and it works well, plus it looks good too, the only thing is, you need a vacume solenoid, and from that it goes through the grommet in it to the diaphram, then manifold vacume on the other side, and you hook the solenoid to the fuel lockoff, so when you flick to petrol, the diaphram opens for full airflow, and if you dont have the air filter and need to know what sort, is a F*** Sex F (XF) lol

I have the sprintgas system on my warm 308 and according to the mechanic who dyno'd it, its not a good system for a big engine like this. he siid where the system is made they dont really have engines that big and so it is really working hard trying to keep up.

I got 160kw at rw on petrol but only 111.5kw on gas.
that is a huge difference and he has told me to fit an impco 300a mixer and impco l or e converter and that should grt it closer to the power that i get from petrol.
although i have since talked to someone else who said i should put a 425 mixer on it but i dont know if i can fit it under the bonnett without cutting a hole.
Dose anyone know? and would it be better?
