He has posted on here with the subject before, usually in relation to Direct injection conversions.

If you are contacting him, or anyone else about it, it would help to indicate the vehicle your intending to fit it to, particually if it is a DI conversion, as the kit is more specific than the vapour kits and more limited as to whats available.

So it's not converted to LPG yet but you want it converted using a liquid injection system?
Why? Liquid injection systems for port injection engines are OK in theory but not so good in practice, you'd do better having a vapour injection system fitted.
Different story for DI engines where imho direct gas injection via existing petrol DI injectors is a better idea than fitting any type of gas port injection (including liquid gas port injection).

You are confusing vapour injection with old school singlepoint which, if you intend running down the dragstrip, do give marginally less power although with a lambda controller you'd not notice the difference. A properly set up vapour injection system will give the same power as petrol (more if you can adjust the ignition advance to take advantage of the higher Octane rating of LPG over petrol) and similar economy too. Fitting a liquid injection system to a port injected engine would just be a waste of money and is only really suited to a direct injection petrol engine.

Less power and poor mpg are just two of the many old wives tales surrounding LPG and spouted as fact by people that know naff all about it.

Simon (LPGC) has some prices indicated on his webpage - http://www.lpgc.co.uk/index_files/ConversionPrices.htm

You'd be looking at the sequential type systems - so this specific bit is what you'd be looking towards
http://www.lpgc.co.uk/index_files/3or4cylinders.htm

Suggest you check with him directly for a more accurate/upto date price though, if you have a specific vehicle in mind. Some are a bit more involved than others.
