The propane system was put together by a tech at Suburban Propane's Conversion Center in Portland, OR. Basically I told him what I wanted and what it was going on and he gave me all the parts. I am using the Impco 200 carb with a bolt pattern that fits the Weber base adapter, the carb is oversized a bit, but the only thing that does is cost more. I wanted one that would work with a turbocharger or without. It runs really smooth and the propane conversion was actually the easiest part of the job. The conversion center I went to had a huge collection of used tanks so I had plenty of options for mounting.

At least if ya get stuck ...next time you can use the tank for cooking up some grub!
We fabbed an adapter , so we can fill up 5gal tanks for our bbq's...(when we transer LP gas into a spare tank so we can change fuel pumps/filters).

Guess you don't need a heater down in So-Cal eh?

Gd the power is good, I'll let you know more after I take it out for the first time and give it a real test! Ha Ha, yup no heater.
As far as the 225 goes, I think you can mix and match parts to do whatever works for your application, housings, fittings...that's what I did.

We'll have to get together sometime and wheel.
I am sure there are plenty of places between LA and San Diego to have some fun.

Well done on the project, It feels good to get it all together and running.
That thing will be unstoppable,
Is it dedicated Propane or are you running a liquid fuel system as well?
Thats going to change a few ideas of what a Subie can do an where they can go.

Wind it up rich Bugaru, drive it a month and then lean it out a little.
Ease the old girl into it.
