Why go to dual fuel? Just graft a throttle body on the inlet manifold, 
rip out the petrol tank and pump, install an LPG tank in it's place and 
LPG control unit and evaporator under the bonnet and voila!

With injection ....
Don't forget all the extra control relays, injector ballast resistor box 
and fuel regulator ... Wouldn't bother with an OEM setup ... too many 
parts. If you must use injection, invest in a digital Motec or Haltech 

IMHO, the Holley carb would be a simpler dual fuel option.
