You'd need the computer for things like the coil packs
There are so many people out there who will tell you that you can't. What you've got to do is turn around and say "watch me"

Hi Mate,
you will need the wiring and original computer.  Doesn't matter what fuel you use it still has to run first. 
Just gone through it in mine and almost finished.  V6 Conversions in Moree make a sub harness and BCM simulator that makes everything work.  However, couple of warnings.  The gear is good-no issues there.  Instructions are a bit hit and miss and need updating badly as there is a bit of it that is assumed and not spelt out in the instructions.  To do the wiring you will still need to know what you are doing as there is a lot of additional bits that are needed.

Happy to help out with any advice from my experience if that is any help

Neil

There are 2 looms going from the computer, engine and other (i think) but you'll need both as the other side goes to things like temp and fan and oil lights etc, and things like cruise control etc are controlled by the dash. things like crank angle sensor and coil packs, and even the trans goes through the dash/computer.

Best bet would be to get a running engine (car), do the lpg mod, unplug the injectors and fuel pump and see if it goes, if not you'd need to bypass those two things, but if your going to run the commodore dash you'd always have the engine warning light on as the computer would register at least the pump not working, not sure about the injectors.

Wonder if you could do lpg injection? they do it on trucks

I believe that the newer the donor vehicle was the harder it gets because of the wiring and sensors.  I used a VT V6 just because it was the one that came up at the time.  Go to V6 Conversions site and have a read.  He spells out what you need for each swap.  IE Bedford or Torana etc.

The engine harness is complete with the removed motor and computer.  All you do is change the electrical wiring to remove the V6 battery cables etc and use yours.
