If it's tweaked by feel and set for LPG I assume you will not be running petrol at all as the timing will probably be quite signifcantly adavanced as LPG is said to be the equivalent of 130+ octane.

Pleased to hear it sounds like a simple timing and tuning issue.

Now what about the other engine - was it on LPG and what was the fastest you could get it to? 

195 kmh on lpg, going to keep the heads from it as it had only run a few 1000 km on gas, so the valve seats should be ok'ish.
