    2) Whats different about the side burners (LP vs NG)? Will an LP side burner unit connected to an NG manifold work OK?

    The part numbers for the burner tubes, and the side burner unit appear to be different for LP and NG.

    I intend to retain the LP components for any future reconversion.

    Thanks.

    (Just joined the forum so excuse me if I've inadvertently violated any rules/etiquette)
    1) I did not change the burner tubes. The manifold swap alone is enough.
    2) You just need the right orifice for the side burner. I am not sure if you can find a replacement part online. I can take some measurements to see if the ones grill-parts sells fits (PM me or I won't remember). Otherwise I would just drill it out with a #54 bit. You can try w/o any modification and like LMichaels said you will just get a small flame. I don't know how important is the side burner to you but most people don't use it.

    The NG hose is also a direct swap.

    Just FYI, the LP valves are cast aluminum and the NG valves are brass. So, the valves are indeed different between the LP and NG versions.

    That material difference you noticed may have just been a production difference from the factory in China where the assembly is made. Really has nothing to do with NG or LP

    The side burner is not such a big deal for me, Ill try and get the correct orifice for the NG side burner if this is a cost effective solution otherwise I'm not too bothered.
    Its good to know the main and sear burner tubes are approximately equivalent.

    Which parts did you order?
    I think it's
    (4) 88305
    (1) 88315
    (1) 80012
    But a confirmation or correction would be helpful
    I'm looking to switch over a 2012 Genesis EP-330 from NG to LP

    Andrew - Did you buy the parts from grill-repair? I'm about to purchase the same myself and was wondering how your conversion turned out.

    The side burner conversion is easiest because it has a variable (not fixed) type valve. So really a simple orifice change is all that's needed
