What is this listing for?

A brand new OMVL Lambda Loop LPG conversion front end Kit. This listing contains the correct under bonnet (front end) components to convert your 1990 to 1999 Land Rover Discovery Series I engine to run on LPG. As standard this vehicle was fitted with a 3.5 or 3.9 litre V8 in the UK, however this kit is still completely suitable for you if you have changed the engine capacity as long as you are still running with the same engine management system.

We can supply LPG conversion kits fitted or self fit for all Land Rover/Range Rover models and have all variations listed in our eBay shop. Please enquire if you can not find what you are looking for. yabe@v8engines.com

Please note that it is a requirement of all self fit LPG systems as supplied by RPi Engineering that once fitted, the installation should be checked over, set up and certified by RPi or by an LPG certified fitter.

Switch Unit

Once fitted the LPG switch has two operating modes which are changed between by a simple push button.

  • Petrol: As the name suggests this mode is to run the engine on petrol and the LPG system is inactive.
  • LPG: This activates the LPG solenoids and allows the engine to run on LPG, with the petrol system inactive.

This switch also has a gauge in the form of 1 Red LED and several Green ones that indicates the level of LPG in the tank.

Why this kit?

Although many would tell you that a more expensive sequential injected kit is required this is not the case. We have converted hundreds of Land Rovers using this Lambda Loop draw through type of LPG conversion and there are no issues when converted and fitted properly.

Magnecor Plug Leads

For the best results we always recommend Magnecor plug leads which you can find in our eBay shop along with a detailed explanation of why these are recommended for LPG. Additionally you should always ensure your coil packs and spark plugs are in good condition and of the correct type.

Dual Ignition Timing Amplifier
As LPG needs a different ignition timing to petrol and this style of engine has a distributor it is necessary for best results to upgrade your original amplifier to our dual timing amplifier. This will allow you to set your ignition timing correctly for LPG and then will retard the ignition timing back for petrol.
Bespoke LPG K&N Air induction kit.
For instant power improvement and increased air flow to the engine we designed this unique K&N, LPG induction Air Filter kit. Especially for LPG, to ensure maximum engine power without engine hesitation or backfiring as would be normal from using a K&N type filter alone. It uniquely includes our bespoke Stainless Steel filter shroud offering the minimal partial restriction to air intake. This combination gives excellent performance gains on both LPG and petrol along with improved fuel efficiency and throttle response. As you can see it not only works perfectly but it looks great too.
