Aye LPG is ideal for us Scots
. I'm not running it in my present Jeep, however I did have it in a XJ I hd a few years ago.
Come to think of it, I don't have any pics of my intake and I've had it for months! I'll need to get some up. The TB was easy enough to do. I used a honing tool and used that to get rid of most of the material and thenused a dremel to get an edge on the plate. I then polished it using a kit, that contains bars (look like plasticine) and various mops and heads. Brought it up nice and shiny. If I recall correctly, you can get pretty extensive kits from a site which I think is called 'perfectpolishing'. You can of course pick up cheaper kits on ebay fo about £20, which is what I did (Scottish, remember
You could of course, take it to a shop and have them do it. Shouldn't cost more than £50 max. I probably spent more doing it myself, by the time I'd bought everything I needed, but I got much more satisfaction doing it myself. Plus, all the polishing stuff I've got left has been put to good use. I made £30 polishing a set of carbs for an old MG BGT! And I plan on polishing bits in my engine bay too.
For the intake, I scoured ebay for the correct size of pipes, silicon connectors etc and just bunged on a filter. I know I'm tight, but I just couldn't jusify the £250 for the K&N set up. The difference in sound is amazing and once I've got my exhaustdone it'll be even better!
I've definitely noticed a difference though, much more 'peppy'.
You should check out 'flyin Ryan' on here, he's the guy to talk to. He has a post somewhere, showing how to do the TB. That's where I got my info from
