I miss BTF in these forums. He is one of the smartest and coolest LNF tuner out there. All the stuff he was talking about the LNF two years ago.....are now just being discovered by these so-called "tuners"

He is so right about the fuel system and the head of the LNF.........and many were against his ideas. But now, who is the correct one? lol

anywho, a couple of years ago...he was talking about VNT and compound turbos. He wanted to do them, but he decided to go to another platform :( He is into subies and hondas now. More market...and better for his business.
Only a few people in the LNF world....wana go balls out....unlike those platforms.

That's why he was my first choice to do my compound kit, since I know he will be very interested to do one on a LNF. Plus of course, I was very happy with the previous two kits that I received from him (gt30r kit...and gt35r kit).

His wife's gxp I believe jumped over big boulders. Two wheels were bent...and the hood was damaged. He just recently able to straighten the hood of the gxp.

Thats why after he straightened the hood, he discovered that his previous placement of turbos will not work :( So this is his third revision of the compound kit.

He actually would like to have a side fender 4" exhaust on my set-up. It will produce more power and better flow. But I decided not to go with that set-up.....since I don't think it will be legal to drive around with that exhaust sticking out and being loud. I'll be pulled over left and right.

I told him to just use a 4" dp that will gradually become 3" to connect to the 3" solo exhaust. That will definitely affect the power of the car, and not getting the max potential. But that's ok, I'll be happy with 600whp with virtually no lag :)

I actually mentioned you before, when we first talked on the phone. BTF knows you and he said hi as well :)

theres a vid on youtube or streetfire, not sure which, that has a 701whp s2000 turbo and it has that side exhaust youre talking about. doubt its legal since you probably cant put a cat on it and its loud too. you might be able to get away with the loudness if you dont run it hard around the popo.

bellows and v-band kit (compressor) arriving this Wednesday.
As you can see, the compound set-up is a PACKAGING NIGHTMARE! :)







we will look for short fat radiator and custom shroud required for a v-mount Intercooler and Front Mount Intercooler. Dual Intercooler? what? what????

vic, it's BTF's wife's gxp :)

he's using it to build my kit. He just told me the other day that he might end up coming down to SMG to help install the kit, since he already knows how to install/remove it inside out.


the color scheme that you helped me with last year............IS still the plan :)

yeah, i have different vendors working on my set-up.

Mostly are being done by BTF.....and SMG.
BATES from california did my block.
WERKS did my custom race intake manifold with port injection
SOLO exhaust....did my custom 3" dual exhaust
Norm's ..did my custom hood, fenders, and splitter


If I need more revision, I'll email you again on my color scheme! See, you're also one of the crowd that's helping me! And you're also from another state! :)

One expensive hunk of INCONEL bellowl!

This will take care of the expansion from header to gt4294r to return tube. It's an expansion bellow for pre-turbo heat/vibration relief for the big turbo.

The main Burn's collector already has double slip (which is awesome) so that will take care of the gt2871r side of things.

Funny that I see this thread bumped. I was wondering today where Antonio has been. Haven't see him on the forums lately. I'm guessing he is currently putting in the goodies. Hope for the best.
