one thing we found out when you run a cdi with any type of coils, you have to run iridium plugs, something about a built in resistor on the plugs, how regular plugs dont have it and iridiums do. anyways we have a decked out b18 and other toys

im not a huge fan of v8, stictly because the power is there, generally in a stock heavy car. not making it too fast. ive always liked v6 and most 4 cyl. just to crank as much power out of something so tiny. i recently totaled my 09 hatch wrx. last night not paying attention, it pushed through a corner and hit a telephone pole, im not gonna give a lecture on what im doing because im waiting on insurance, so i honestly have no idea. all depends, my built motor could go in a STi, if i get enough to buy one and buy my car back. i have no clue. i could wind up with a cheap car paying for everything. then starting from scratch on something new. but this is amazing. so glad you chose forced induction. i cant wait to see it finished

its the stock 5.3 oil pan that im messing with. it was busted on the bottom when i got it. Just been cold in the shop so I haven't messed with it much, i want to get this bike sold so I can just get the Lsx 376 for the subaru. I rounded up a ls3 intake manifold this week. Last few days at work i've been looking at fuel setup. Oh yea, my ls2 drive accessories came in so I mocked them up and everything fits good. Just have to drill and tap the block for a alternator bracket b/c that bung isn't drilled and tapped on the iron block.

Looks great! Are the headers going to be ceramic coated? I think you mentioned that they will be. Looking at this makes me want to start messing with my exhaust. I'm work with an arc, a little more crude than the mig. Again, looks great.

yea going to ceramic coat the manifolds and hot pipe crossover.
I haven't used an arc in like 12yrs, only in shop class at school, always had migs up till last summer I bought my tig, which that is what im using on my stainless.

It's funny you say that, my high school shop class only had a mig but I've always owned an arc. Just ordered stock to weld up a 3" mid pipe and flex joint.
