Glad to hear that you will be back in DET MSL.

I still have just over two weeks here in Brazil.

According to the shipping tracker, my cage should be at Coreys shop on Wednesday. I'll see if Corey can take a few pics and either post them here or send them to me to post...

Another car with similar numbers to Brandi - same TT kit but it took 2 extra lbs to make up for the displacement

I told this guy when he purchased the kit NOT TO GO OVER 8psi

Maybe he thought you meant 8lbs each

Glad that the customer is aware of his kits abilities AND disabilities.

A little Meth on Roberts car to bump up the octane would be nice too...Then maybe we could add some timing to it and start making a little power. ;-)

Just checking back in Robert...looks like everything is going well. When you get home you'll have to head back down to Houston. We have a Camaro vs Mustang show coming up in September.

That's 4 lbs more than I'm running, and it is a bomb...tick, tick, tick...

I'm all about a little powahhhh........

I suppose you saw the post, so, if you would be so kind as to either post or email me a few pics of the cage as it's packaged, and then if you unpack it before I get home, maybe a couple of shots as you get ready to install it...

thanks Corey...

Man, I would love to attend, and may, but right now my schedule is shot to heck in a hand basket... Our rig is leaving Brazil two years early, headed to the shipyard in Brownsville, about a seven to eight week tow, and will be there until Nov or Dec. I may make the entire tow, or I may get reassigned to another rig, or they may try to assign me to take it to Mexico if it goes there, at which point, I'll take advantage of the numerous job offers from other cowbird I have on the table.... I have lots of loyalty to my current company, but I've told them I wouldn't go back to Mexico... And that I want to stay international... So, time will tell...

How long do you stay on the rig at a time?

My typical schedule is 28 days on, 28 days off, though I lose the travel days since we are going to be on the rig for 28 days... The further you have to travel the more time you loose off...

I just spent a little over two weeks on a different rig helping them get off of downtime... That's when the oil company doesn't have to pay the rig day rate due to equipment damage or malfunction... The rig is back up and running again, so I'm headed back to my own rig... A little less than two weeks left in this hitch..l

Ah, I see the math. They make sure they get their days from you. Saw the pictures you had up with the waves and no sign of land in sight. I'm doin' my turbo learnin' in your thread. Nice build.

Here's a bit more math... We flew in a helicopter for an hour and forty five minutes today coming into the heliport, at about 125 knots cruising speed, so, you can figure out how far offshore we are...

We also average about 100-105 hours a week while on the rig, my personal best, or worst depending on the view point is 139 hours a week, two weeks in a row, and a 72 hour straight stint never leaving the moon pool area other than to make a potty stop... Roustabouts and roughnecks were bringing me food to my work area... When a rig is making 270,000 dollars a day, downtime is expensive and none of us like it,
