Damm, wish I'd known :twisted: :twisted:

Andrew, the only real difference is the XM TCT cat is 2" too long at the tail for an Activa. A good welder will be able to shorten it for you...

A road test shows she runs lovely and an annoying stumble on gas when on the over-run or very light throttle has now gone and she's quieter :-D Excellent!
Brilliant work :-D I bet she is feeling much better now!

Good luck with the MOT 8-)

Thanks Chris :-D Only problem is she's not idling well on gas when hot now. I wonder if that was why the cat and oxygen sensor were removed.

She's lovely on petrol so I reckon the gas ECU may need a tweak. Something else to get my teeth into.

Off idle she runs really gorgeously on gas :-D

Any time Mike :-D

I've been spending my time this evening studying how LPG works and how it uses oxygen sensor signals. I have some checking to do now as have discovered quite a lot... Got a circuit diagram of mine and now understand what all the bits and pieces do...

Just mulling over if I should spend £35 on the diagnostic software and cable now...

Mike, what make and model of LPG kit is Jgra's?

If it allows you to change the mapping Jim then it will be well worth it to get it running perfect :)

Me being positive and MOT-time are mutually exclusive terms Chris :(
