Just because....

As mentioned, I stopped by the shop today and visited with Corey and Co. and took a few pics... Today was a wife and I day... She doesn't go often but enjoys visits to the shop...

So anyway... The passenger side turbo is almost finished. Justin was doing last little bit fit checks, and prior to my arrival, they test fitted the plate that mounts under the turbo's. We will reuse this as it fits in with part of our ground effects. There is plenty of clearance between the plate and the turbo's.

These images give a graphic visual to the size of the downpipes... They are great big...

The down pipes will be adjusted for length and then have V band ends put on them. This will allow for quick and easy changes from full exhaust (street) to short little turndowns (race).

They also figured out the filter situation. We'll run one on both turbo's on the street and remove the filters for racing... We'll make some little screens to put over the turbo's for racing days... Justin is going to fab some 4" pipes from the inlet port to the filter... I ground off some bosses on the driver side of the oil pan the other day....This allows clearance for the filter when running on the street. The bosses used to be there as part of the oil cooler mount, but that is long gone on my car as we have a proper oil cooler up front...

My first thought... that will never pass TX emissions

My second thought... The driveshaft safety loop, what the what ???

Is that braided pipeline for your new fuel volume requirements? What is that, 3/4" i.d.???

I could go on but my head hurts

lol, she has never failed emissions yet... Bare in mind on the driveshaft loop that is a 4" drive shaft... The loop looks small but it really is beefy... and well secured...

The braided line is for the old fuel requirements, if we have to change pumps, which is a possibility, we'll use the current supply line as the new return line.... we can try adding a BAP prior to needing to change pumps though... We should know something in the next two weeks...

You forget I work on high end stuff when I'm actually at work... I do a lot of hand fabrication, just not on cars...

But you're probably right... and Thanks...

So, it looks really good to make it to the mile... At lunch today, my supervisor, the big boss, stated that he and one of the other supervisors may have to take a day and come down to Beeville to watch me run Brandi... That's encouraging as hell...

It looks like they are going to try to get me to West Africa next week, to work on a new drill ship off the coast... Not sure where it is specifically and it's only for a short time... Four weeks on the rig but not a permanent assignment...

Have to get together with Logistics tomorrow and go through the process of getting my visa taken care of... m really thinking this job is going to be the cats arse.... Great people and great set up...

I Believe I really made the right decision.....

Now... To arrange for an RV, and lots of other details in preparation...

yeah, I'm trying to determine the easiest way to get there from my hotel. It appears to be out in the middle of nowhere.... Might have to beat the cows back to get in the water...

Woohoo... New parts on the way... Shipping Friday... And, I may get two days reprieve from Africa... Due to helicopter logistical issues, I may not leave until the 14th... Compounded by the fact that my VISA isn't back from Washington D.C....
