See - there are small sensors like Lambda and timing advancer which are used as Performance booster. However, Its important to know - what Lambda, Advancer in CNG Kit are and how does CNG work with these Performance Boosters.

Sequential Kit (from Lovato, Tomasettto) - Have Independent gas injectors, while Lamda & Advancer are used in Conventional Kits (Open Loop & Closed Loop) - which do not have independent injectors and Lambda device, only helps in optimizing the air-fuel ratio. Infact - these kits can be installed anytime later too - if you continually observe loss of performance in car or sensor not managing the gas flow completely.

Sequential Kits do not actually require separate sensor like Lambda or Advancer - as the Technology is different due to independent injectors which in itself optimized the Air Flow and Gas Mixture to provide in the best performance output

Thanks for reply.
Actually, my kit fitter told me that for sequential kits, power booster will be installed only if the performance is dropped.
He is also confirming that the timing advancer will be installed during kit fitting.

Is this true or he is trying to get more money from me?

Thanks again.

I dont think that Power booster will actually be required, if you go with Branded Lovato / Tomasetto or BRC etc. Sequential Kit.
Lamba & Advancer are much better, but if considering a conventional closed loop kit, and there considered as performance booster, but why for Sequential wherein settings are alreadty fine tuned, and will be optimized through separate gas injectors.

Why the question of performance droppage also is coming - when you going with Sequential. I suggest to get a second view from some other Reputed CNG Fitment centre. To my info - Power Boosters or Advancer Timings are not required in Sequential kit, may be you should get a second view from one more installation center.

HI EVERYBODY
NO MATTER HOW EXPENSIVE SEQUENTIAL KIT YOU GET INSTALLED IN YOUR CAR ,,,IF YOU ARE LOOSING POWER IN RUNNING ...........U HAVE TO UNDERSTAND LIKE THIS SAY IF YOUR CAR TAKES 10 SECONDS TO ACHIEVE 100KM SPEED ON PETROL ,,YOU MAY FACE 20%VARIATION LESS POWER ON SWITCHING TO CNG THAT IS ASSUMED.BUT IF LESSER THEN THIS ITS COMPULSORY TO GET INSTALLED CKP IF SEQUIENTIAL KIT OR BOOSTER IF CONVENTIONAL ...VERY FAIR REASON FIRST OF ALL ITS POWER LOSS IS DUE TO OCTAIN DIFFERENCE AND SECOND IF YOUR HAS ALREADY COMPLETED MORE THEN 50000LM RUN ...IT WILL NEED CKP/BOOSTER
GET IT INSTALLED AND SEE THE DIFFERENCE................I M MYSELF GASKIT EXPERT AND THIS IS FACT THAT EXPERIENCE ALWAYS COUNTS

Hi.
I have installed BRC sequential cng kit 1 year ago in my hyundai i10 1.2 kappa.
After installation of cng kit till one year it was working good.
But since last 2-3 months my car pick-up, power is too much less.
I went to the mechanic of cng fitment, he told me that everything​ is ok butu have to install CKP and also told me that after installing CKP my car engine efficiency will reduce upto 15%.
Pls help me whether i have to install CKP or any other solution.

Thank u..

I have installed conventional cng kit in my hyundai i10 sportz 1.2 kappa. on CNG mode, when AC is on and car is running around 50-60 Km/hours in 4th gear, and if i have to slow down, then as soon as i change the gear from 4th to 3rd, the rpm goes to 0 and the engine switches off. Mechanic removed the enhancer and told me to check for 1 week. Car ran perfectly thus mechanic fitted the new enhancer assuming the enhancer was faulty. As soon ass the new enhancer was fitted the same problem again started.
On petrol, it runs fine.

Please help me someone, i am having this problem since past 3 months

I bought one Xcent new model from Hans Hyundai 3 years ago but from the very first day its performance is below par, pick up is very poor and it is missing very frequently. Visited their service centre but their response and service is pathetic and they intentionally delayed the matter so that its warranty is over. Now warranty is over and I have visited them 8-9 times every time they keep my car for checking and it is given only in the late evening with assurances that now the fault has been rectified, which has never been rectified. I want to know, where is the problem, to whom should now I give my car for rectification of fault in cng kit, please guide me. Thanks.

Get a Advancer installed... if hte engine idle and pickup is improved then engine life increases and does not reduce... our CNG mechanics are new kids on block .. take suggestions from those who have driven CNG car for years.....GO FOR ADVANCER .. you will save money and your car engine.

Take it to another competing Authorised Service center for checkup and see. Else find a mechanic who has resigned from these dealerships and have setup his own small garage.
