Decided to try K&N’s new face masks and ordered a new filter cleaner and oil kit since the one I gave may be around 2 decades old and the drop in I’ve got in my 200 needs a good cleaning!

001(4).HEIC

May order a second drop in and their washable HVAC filter for the 200 at some point too, need I need to replace the HVAC filter and a second drop in would give the current one time to dry before reinstalling it.

We lost our feline friend of fifteen years, Lucy, almost a month ago.

Yesterday we brought home her predecessor Marcy.

1.4 pounds of piss and vinegar! :D

Found an original, mint condition Canadian brochure for my 1999 Tahoe.

Just need to find an original owner's manual now.

Complete set of factory service manuals for the old PT Cruiser.

Pretty much have factory manuals for everything I own now.

Considerably richer source of information than Haynes, Chilton's, etc.

Picked these 2 miscreants up at Walmart tonight, have a project I’m planning for the future that the hairy fellow to the right will likely be involved in.

Lego! ?  I suppose it is a model.  I "had" to put it together. 8 pieces. Almost OOB but I added a stand for the phoenix.

Congrats Steve and family, our family is huge pet lovers.  Always tough to lose a pet family member (we've certainly had our share over the years).  I showed the pictures to my wife and daughter and they loved them. ENJOY!!!

The troop transport truck hit a Tank which tore off one of the trucks fuel tanks. the Truck caught fire, and according to my late aunt he was sitting near where the fuel tank was.

I got a cupel ecoboost turbos that will likely be making there way on to a 22hp brigs v twin lawnmower this summer for attempt #3 at turbocharging a lawnmower.

Question: Will you have enough exhaust pressure from the lawn mower engine to spin the Turbo ?

Theoretically I should have enough back pressure to spin them on a 22hp twin if I delete the governor so it will be able to hit 7000 rpm. I have already had a single cylinder 11hp Briggs spin a slightly larger turbo but unfortunately before I could drive it it had a catastrophic backfire and the entire lawnmower burned down....

This is a wild setup to say the least. To bad about you first mower getting burned down. I don't have a great depth of knowledge of turbo charging an engine only a very basic understanding and for the most part this would pertain to  OEM automotive applications so I may ask some questions that may seem odd to you. Looking at your exhaust system it would seem that you have some plumbing background but I can see also that this would make sense as this would support the Turbo. The connection of the Turbo outlet to the Carb. looks as though there is a slight kink in the 90 degree bend in the hose. Do you think this is even an issue ? I don't know about the angle that the Turbo needs to be set at. Is it even something where you could rotate the Turbo a little to  make a more direct connection between the Turbo and the Carb. ? I think what you're doing is interesting. The next step maybe a Motorcycle engine ?

There aren’t really any odd questions when it comes to making lawnmowers go fast. 

I have a little pipe fitting experience working with my Dad in the oil patch up here in the north and the 1” threaded pipe is perfect for biulding exhaust on the signal cylinder brings exhaust port is already threaded.  As for the piping from the turbo to the carb it was a random radiator hose that the parts store had (the parts guys look at me funny when I said it was for a turbocharged Briggs lawnmower) and I didn’t notice any issues with it being kinked like that and I had already rotated the turbo outlet to the best possible position. If you look at the last picture of it burnt you will see that I completely abandon the stock carb due to the fact that it couldn’t supply enough fuel once it got above 6000rpm, which allowed for a much straighter run into the intake port and ran a small snowmobile carburetor on the turbo inlet side (it was pulled off during the fire and I never got a picture of it setup) the carb on the inlet side of the turbo is what caused the fire in due to compressed fuel and then it backfired and shot the flames everywhere. Unfortunately motorcycle engines are not allowed in the class I race in but I do have plans for a golf cart that involves a motorcycle motor and a turbo in the future.

Didn't really expect to see one in the stores and I refuse to pay the eBay scalpers......
