UPDATE: Walbro 400 fuel pump to replace the lphp.....will not fit, uggghhhh.

we'll just use a walbro 255lph fuel pump since it's just a drop-in pump for the lphp replacement.


Walbro 400 fuel pump will be just dedicated for the auxillary injectors.

Update:

BTF is still working on fabbing the secondary fuel tank that will be placed inside the trunk.
We are hoping that everything will be finished by the week-end after Thanksgiving.
Then tuning begins....


for the past few months, wife and I have been very busy moving into the new house and unpacking. Also been attending pregnancy/baby classes.

Also working with Median Magazine to feature my car. They ended up having a 5-page spread article for LIPSTICK.

I'm hoping that the car will be on the cover of Median Magazine once the build is finally finished, and have another feature that will include more about the build, fabrication, tuning, dyno and etc.


MEDIAN MAGAZINE will be the best source for local high performance automotive news in the Northeast Region of America. All the top shops. The big builds. Products and services from local companies. Tech articles. It's all gonna be there.

check out the facebook account: http://www.facebook.com/mobileprotec...ianMag?fref=ts



sorry for the blurry photos of the pages of Lipstick:

sorry for the wait.

house build....and now the baby..............my finances were geard towards the more important things in life

once I get extra monies.........I'll get back to this!
I actually just sent some extra $$$ to BTF for fabrication of a custom fuel cell and fuel lines that will be fitted at the trunk.....
But still have more fabrications and relocations needed inside the engine bay to avoid melting important lines....which involves more $$$

I'm hoping by summer 2013....it will be done.

No hurries right now..........still have a lot of important bills to pay ...lol
