    Hello,
    I would like to get some opinions on A.) Which type is the best, dry chem.,haylon, CO-2. B) what size bottle, C) best place to mount it.
    in my 328 GTS. I recently read a thread here about someone who had a fire due to raw fuel being dumped into the catalytic converters,due to a distributor problem and am now concerned about the possibility in my car.
    Thanks,
    Will

    Study the threads for the better choices, but remember that any extinguisher is better than none. At least get a cheap one until you make a final decision.

    Thanks Mule, Thanks Hans,
    I didn't think to review the archives. There's a lot of info there to consider.
    One thing for sure, anything is better than nothing.

    Find a Halon 1211 (good luck, check the web) or a Halotron unit at your nearest Fire Safety store - I bought a 2.5 Lb Halotron locally for less than $100 out-the-door. Griots Garage wants over $150 for the same unit, but with chrome paint. Mine came stock in Ferrari Red, so....

    I used Mike's mounting system also. There is a similar mount on Ebay for $75.
