Turbosmart is currently helping me out with my build and sent me:

Eboost 2 electronic boost controller - 60max psi

2011 Race Port Bov

Comp-Gate 40 wastegate

Power-Gate 60 wastegate



So that's the reason why I have to remove all of my Tial products since they're a direct competitor


here are some of the photos:

Eboost controller (66mm)







2011 Race Port Blow off Valve (very small and light)





check out the size difference between my old Tial Q bov and the 2011 Race Port BOV (they're both 50mm though)









I do not have real photos of the comp gate 40 and power gate 60 since they were sent directly to BTF who will install them on the compound manifold set up

holy crap, thats a big difference in size between those BOV's that nice new small one seems a lot more friendly with your "space" problem with the setup

yeah, I was soooo surprised too. Because I thought the Tial Q is small.

didn't know that this Turbosmart Race Port BOV will be a lot smaller


But I still wish that we have more space on the "hot side".....which is where the "space" issue is actually.

Although I will be using a fully v-band TIAL GT42R housing,.....I still want to show you guys how BIG a GARRETT GT42R housing with a 1.01 AR I will be shipping this housing to the new owner soon ...









and here's the difference between the Garrett and Tial housings:





I chose the Tial housing because:
1.) its VERY sexy
2.) its lighter
3.) its smaller in size and has full v-band which are both very advantageous in fitting my compound set-up in a very tight engine space.


DEI Titanium wraps for a T3 and T4 turbine housings that I'll be using for my GT2871r and GT4294r, respectively:

HUGE Thanks to DAVE of WERKS for helping me out with a big-A SS intercooler that will be more than enough for my 700hp build.

WERKS is one of the vendors who has been supporting LIPSTICK for this build, and besides this werks race ic........ALSO there's one more product which will be the first among LNF kappas that Dave is building for me (will be done in less than 2 months and will be announced)



anyways, this is the:

The Werks RACE INTERCOOLER

biggest intercooler for kappas - 15"x3"x24"

1100hp capacity!!! 100% made in the USA!
Pressure tested up to 65psi!
3" inlet and outlet
Ultra efficient bar and plate style core








it is more than twice the volume of the stock ic

I would like to thank DAVE of WERKS for supporting my 700hp compound turbo build, by fabricating the FIRST LNF Kappa RACE custom intake manifold!

Thank you WERKS!!!


This is what the manifold will look like (this is for the 2.4 Kappa):

Awe Garrett turbos make me sad, but I guess you got to run what the money men tell you to run.

Make sure to find out what type of ecotec block that started as. Bates as been know to deceive people into thinking they are getting something they are not.

I didnt know solo performance did exhaust. I ordered my magnetic numbers from them and I thought that they only really did safety gear and auto-x timing equipment and racecar lettering and numbers.

I think we have two different shops bro.

solo-performance.com that fabbed my exhaust specializes in exhausts/dp/mufflers....and not with magnetic numbers/letterings/auto-x equipment.

Oh my good Lord. Where the HECK is it gonna go?

That sidewinder is absolutely sexy. The motor being turned that way is the only way this would have worked. On our cars a compound build one would almost have to be rear mounted. Either that or some crazy hard bends which probably wouldn't flow too well.

I've often kicked around the idea tho 50 trim off a log style manifold back to a similar turbo you have "rear mounted". Not that big tho. Basically an STS style compounded with something else. Would need an oil pump as well.

But anyways this is ridic man.

I'm actually a little confused. Shouldn't the 60mm gate be before the 28r somewhere?
