turbo chargers

Hi all, This is my first time on the forum so I hope this is not a well asked question. I have a 1993 GQ Patrol,4.2lt petro; on LPG. It has done almost 300000ks and running like a clock but needs more power to tow a 1500kg camper.
I would like to fit a turbo but need to know which to fit,has anyone ever fitted one to a simalar vehicle and if so????????????

Yeah a bit too far LOL (didnt read your location) but might still be worth a phone call anyway just to see if they have done any and if there were any issues. I rang them a few times when I was thinking of getting my old lux done but in the end I didnt end up getting it done but was never a problem for them to answer any of my questions. I did ring them in the end and thanked them for there time even though I didnt get it done and sold the vehicle but appreciated their time on the phone to me.......WHG

your best option is to get th efi setup off the TI 4.5 and use that with a turbo and intercooler, or just change the transfer ratios to lower.
