The Lounge / Need some 8.8 spider gears

Drivetrain / Accelerated Bearing wear from not using assembly lube
« on: April 24, 2020, 08:19:20 AM »
I did not know better when I rebuilt my engine a few years ago and did not use assembly lube, just coated with 30 weight oil.  I am getting gray/silver streaks in my oil so I pulled the pan and a main cap.  This is what I saw.



Do you guys think this was the result of poor first start up lubrication?  I primed the engine with the starter before starting.

I also have lowish oil pressure when the oil is hot and at idle. as soon as I give it gas, oil pressure shoots up to 50-60psi.  I have a stock pump with high pressure spring.

The Lounge / 8 Second FB
« on: January 24, 2020, 01:21:41 PM »
so me and my buddy got talking, and we are thinking of building an 8 second FB.  He was willing to front the money, I would do a Youtube build series on it, and then hopefully we could sell it at the end for a profit.  It could potentially help show my skills to attract more customers.

Anyone think this is possible?  I know I can get an FB down to 2400 lbs pretty easily.  Basic outline is below

FB shell
NHRA Cage
5.3 or 6.0 truck motor
Big Turbo
Drag fuel cell
Injectors and tune for E85
Ford Explorer 8.8 solid axle
4L80E with stall converter

General Tech / Earls Ultra Pro Hose ends are compatible with BMRS hose
« on: December 04, 2019, 07:12:51 AM »
just an FYI,  I had a hunch and tried it, successfully assembled and will be testing soon.  I really like the convoluted PTFE hose, and am going to try and use it for all of my AN lines

Fabrication / Fuel Cell Cage Material
« on: November 22, 2019, 09:59:07 AM »
Any opinions on fuel cell cage material?  Currently have it modeled with 1 1/4" X 0.083" wall square tube, Could I go smaller so it can be lighter?  I will be adding 1/8" plate pads where the square tube lands on the existing frame rail, just didn't model them in yet.  I will also add some gussets to cover the open tube ends and tie them into the other tubes

The Lounge / Watches
« on: October 01, 2019, 07:56:14 AM »
Anyone else into watches?  I started wearing a cheap smartwatch I got for christmas a few years ago again, and it sparked my interest in getting something nice, I really enjoy not having to reach into my pocket to read the time off my phone.

I just bought one of these, and am already looking for another.  It seems like this new hobby could be as costly as cars!  :yay: Anyone else collect watches?

« on: July 18, 2019, 10:11:17 PM »
2000 lbs + 1400HP = ????  Got to hang out with David and the ToyMakerz team recently.  Hopefully I will be helping them on a new project that will be featured on a show.  Apparently its a big show on History Channel

Interior/Exterior / Preval Sprayers
« on: July 15, 2019, 03:00:14 PM »
Finally took the plunge into bodywork.  Painted a replacement fender for my wife's rav4.  I am using a preval sprayer, and it turned out ok.  A few little runs that I tried to fix but didn't really work out.

Doing the clear tonight with a preval, we'll see how it goes.  I should probably buy a cheap compressor and harbor freight guns.

Pics and Videos / Local Car Show
« on: July 05, 2019, 07:06:23 AM »
I went to a local car show last weekend, and thought some of you guys may be interested.  Lots of cool stuff including a very nice Torino GT.  If you watch any reality car shows you may recognize the ToyMakerz.  They are a cool group, and build some cool cars. I will be going up to their shop soon and bringing my car up there.

Drivetrain / DIY Fuel Surge Tank
« on: June 27, 2019, 08:33:25 AM »
Has anyone built their own fuel surge tank?  I am thinking of building one from stainless because I can't weld aluminum.  I plan on hooking it to a fuel cell that is meant for an external pump.  Does this sound like a good idea?

I really hate to pay like $400 for a radium one

The Lounge / Junk work
« on: November 25, 2018, 01:16:08 PM »
I am helping out a friend of mine with his 4.8 turbo 3rd Gen Camaro. 

I thought some of you may appreciate this work I am undoing from the guy that did the swap.

Jumper cable alternator wire, plastic pvc heater core adapters, lets use 2 hose clamps...wait it still leaks, PCV to nowhere

It should be a cool car when finished, I'll update progress here and post some videos too

Forced Induction/Nitrous / Turbo or Nitrous for my LT1?
« on: September 05, 2018, 11:55:44 AM »
Hey guys,

I am wanting more power in my LT1.  I already have a cam, and valvetrain mods, and also have ARP rod studs and main bolts.  Engine is a gen II SBC (LT1), 2 bolt main, stock crank.  What would be better for longevity, a 100 shot of nitrous or a turbo at 8 psi?  I have no problem changing pistons but don't want to spend the money on heads yet...
