    How about a D15 in a 1989 Suzuki Alto that came from factory with 35bhp F8B 3 Cylinder? The car weighs approx 680 kgs :Grin: :Grin:
    must be a dog in the corners with that much weight in front of the front axle!

    haha yeah must be mental in a straight line. but as far as I remember only FX (82-88) came without the servo (i believe it was like a large black circular disc behind the brake oil reservoir. It was a popular upgrade to get for us FX owners. This one doesn't seem to have it!
    found some photos of the actual engine bay and I can't find it in them either..

    Carburetted F8B from 2012 (last year) with factory CNG kit.. :Grin: SpeedyGee you might find the installation a bit *ahem* inspiring.

    Well, upon seeing that, my thoughts were "Damn that's so primitive and simple man ! ... Wish my LPG systems were that simple to install !"

    Yeah they are surprisingly simply.. just a regulator or whatever the large thing is, from there on a pipe goes and sandwiches between the air intake and the carb and that is it! :Grin: I needed to tune mine every month to make sure it idles properly. *sigh* good old days.
