I caught that part about the TT 5.3. That post was my (wrong) guess - thinking you liked the results with the customer's setup to inspire a change in your own build. Other than going with twins (or quad), a compound boosted SC/turbo arrangement would be possible "next level" stuff. Oh well, can only watch this space to find out...

Hmm Ty I feel as you are a simple guy.

Maybe redesign the bay with a big block 502 and single turbo?

Of course then you'd have to upgrade rear end and beef up the drive train even more lol

Just *****s n giggles, whatever you do will be awesome.

I have hptuners pro, bought it a while back, my buddy use to test parts (head and cam packages) for patriot performance here in alabama. He can tune pretty good and I know the basics with hptuners and hondata (for hondas).

Hondas are great but sometimes you just need something with a little more torque and a better drivetrain. Take an lsx bugeye Subaru for example

I joined the forum today to specifically comment on your thread. I love the LS swaps. I looked at my 01' Forester and said I bet you could fit an LS in there. So I did a Google search and your thread came up on the first page. I was just curious and dreaming but you took on the project and are proving just how well it can be done. I could really ramble here but I won't. Your time, patience, skill and humbleness does not go unnoticed. I hope I get to see the project finished. But if circumstances don't allow, know that people like you who take the time to not only take on these projects but share your progress help the rest of us out immensely.
Thank you.

I appreciate the kind words... When I get a comment like this it kinda kicks me in the butt and gets me motivated to get this car done. Im ready to get it going, drive it and show it off.

By the way I have ordered a few parts for it. Got my holley oil pan in monday. Got new front and rear hubs in. Hopefully I can get all the front and rear suspension mounted up in the next few weeks. I've just been trying to get this twin turbo truck out of the shop and trying to find a shop to cut some parts for me.

Also sunday night I was doing a lot of tig welding, welding up downpipes so i wasn't really taking any breaks. I noticed i got the weird feeling like I couldnt get my eyes to re adjust when i stopped welding. I felt like I couldn't get my train of thought. Like if you stare at something and have to blink or look a way to get your focus back. It gave me a scare, but it went away within a min or so. I'm not sure what the hell it is, Its not a seizure, the symptoms aren't the same.. I did notice my welding helmet got set on grind mode and welding at 40 amps or so, its really not noticeable that it doesn't go dark enough. The next day i did feel like i had eye strain. so maybe its just something with my eyes, or welded over another bad chemical. I try not to use any cleaners now. Only thing i know i did different was use an abrasive saw to cut the stainless, I usually use a dry cut saw blade. Someone mentioned how bad the stainless dust is to breathe. I just know I've been more stressed this yr than ever before. It could be a combination of things causing my weird spells. but yea i thought all this was put behind me. I just want to find the cause of it.

damn man, wish i had a lathe! i would've loved to help you out. not that colorado is all that close to alabama... have you hit up the custom fab welding & tools forum?

but if you end up at least needing any parts modeled, let me know. i have been a die sinker machinist and CAD/CAM programmer for 10 years. i work in Seimens NX 8.5, and can export anything out to many different file types.

just for sheets and googles, here's our little website:
http://www.cnccorp.net/

not being a job shop ourselves and being in a small niche of machining, i understand the NO WALK-INS sentiment, but man alive, they could at least point you to other shops in the area to use!

Ty,it's chromium that gets to you when cutting welding or grinding stainless. It wasn't really preached in school when I got my welding technology degree, but now that I am working as a boilermaker every powerhouse or refinery I go to is strict about wearing at least a 3m half mask to cut grind or weld stainless. But it's not just stainless. Stainless, Inconel, and chromoly are just a few that I can think of off the top of my head that can screw you up. Hell, even carbon steel can get to you. Have you ever read the MSDS that comes with rod or wire. Kinda scary stuff. Some folks are a lot more sensitive to it than others. There are things you can do, like lots of water to flush your system. A buddy of mine got really sick from welding galvanized, my foreman told him to drink a bunch of milk and a half gallon later he was feeling great again. I'm sure it's expensive with our without med. insurance, but you can get tested for the level of metals in your system. I think it's a hair test. Something to consider if you give your lady anymore scares and wake up to paramedics in the house again. Props to you again on the work, keep it up.

That is some info that i was looking for.... Actually helps me out alot and makes me think of other stuff that has happened since I started tig welding. Last summer I had a metal taste in my mouth / sinuses. I went to the dentist and dr both was like it was a filling leaking or something like that, or an allergic reaction to something. But it eventually went a way. I know ever time i do start feeling weird or tired, I do drink a ton of water and I drink a good bit of milk as well. I am going to go to my dr and see if they can do that test on me. But yea, after doing paint and body work, reading the msds when i got certified for ppg, made me want to stop doing paint work. I lost my mom to liver / pancreatic cancer in 07. I know the chemicals welders / painters are exposed too is so bad ****. I know I don't want to get cancer or anything along those lines.
I will def. check and get a respirator next trip to the welding store.
I'll dig the msds sheet out on the stainless wire and see how bad it is.
Thanks for the input, good to hear from someone else that is in the field. Like I've always been healthy, no medical issues, and to just all of a sudden have this stuff start happening, just its a scary feeling.

All our welders wear a helmet with either a filter built into it or a positive fresh air supply.

Also look into a portable fume recovery system for your shop. I work at a US Steel plant and they are now very cautious about welding, grinding, and burning on many metals. We have alot of stainless steel furnace covers etc. That need maintenance. They even seperate work clothes special if you burn, weld, cut or grind.

Be safe.

Ty, these things don't usually happen suddenly. Maybe the symptoms are just now coming on, but my guess is that this is due to a build up over time. My opinion is that you should go see someone who specializes in functional medicine. They will look at you as a whole and try to find the true cause of whatever is going on. Unfortunately our traditional system will just try to address your symptoms with medication. If that doesn't work they may try surgery.

First things first though. Go see a doc and see what they say. I hope things go better for you this year and that you get this thing done so you can enjoy it.

I did, they just want to assume I have epilepsy. Really wouldn't even listen to what I had to say or even think twice to stuff I have been exposed to. They were quick to write a prescription for some medicine and was like here try this and slapped me with a 7400 dollar med bill.

I haven't welded anything in a week. No spells or anything, just gonna ventilate my welding area and wear a respirator next time I tig.
