    Default CNG Installation in 2004 SE Saloon

    Hey friendz, I want to get CNG installed in my SE Saloon 2004 model (approx. 50,000 km driven, 3ZZ-FE Engine).

    I have done some research and decided to go with following choices:

    01) CNG Kit: Landi Renzo (Italian Made)
    02) Cylinder: Faber
    03) ECU/Emulator Advancer: ???

    Please advise if the above choices are good or would you guys recommend something different?

    Moreover, please also tell me what's the ideal cylinder size for SE Saloon and which ECU / Emulator is best recommended for this CNG Kit?

    And last but not least, how much this CNG conversion would cost me? (in Rawalpindi / Islamabad)

    @hash4u

    so basically this is what you are recommending:

    01) CNG Kit: Landi Renzo (Italian Made)
    02) Cylinder: Inflex (55kg)
    03) Emulator / Advancer: Zoltrix

    And this setup should cost me arround 43k.... that sounds very reasonable as someone told me it's gonna be over 50k.

    @All member

    Now tell me is there anything else I need to know when I take my car for CNG conversion... like any special instructions for the CNG conversion person? By the way, someone has recommended me to goto Auto Zoo (by Commercial market in Rawalpindi) for CNG conversion. Any word about them??? Are they any good... both price wise and quality wise???

    another member @waqasMk asked me for the price few days back thats why i know. They will ask for standard setup or express setup in which the cylinder brackets is installed directly over the shocks without drilling holes. they charge a little extra for that.
    why pay extra and put direct load on the shocks constantly?
    if u r going to commercial area side do check Kundhan cng, its the first CNG center and installer in pindi.....dont know about auto zoo
    good luck

    @hash4u

    Thanks for advising me about the different types (Standard Setup / Express Setup) of installations. I appreciate it.

    Yeah these kinda things I wanted to know about... these little secrets that will help me save some money as we all know these installation guys usually try to rip of the clients one way or another....

    Acha regarding Kandaan, if I am not wrong there are two different Kandaan CNG stations... one on 6th Road and one almost inside Commercial Market.... which one are you referring to???

    For SE Saloon I would recomend Advancer STAP 100/2 of LandiRenzo and not of Zetronics.
    Also Emulater of LandiRenzo is far superior in quality than Zetronics.
    In most of the case Zetronics is used in Civics and cities. whos Advancer and Emulaters by Landirenzo have recently started floating in the market.

    Weight of Fabre cylinder is around 10 Kg Less but its price is also more than 10K compare to normal cylinder.
    If you walk away from your car and don't look back, you have bought the wrong car.
