    Update.. Well everything came to a ginding halt. I had an issue with a few of the head bolts. So I pulled them out to inspect what was the cause.. Found glass bead media in some of the head bolt holes from the bead blaster. Spooked, I pulled it all apart to inspect everything for more of the media I may have missed. I'm going to wash the block again and start over. Should only take a little time to get it back to the point I had it before this. I will keep yall posted.. Live and learn I guess..

    Ouch! Good thing you found it before getting to the point of turning the key. Any reason you chose glass bead over walnut shells? I like the look that glass beads leave, same with you?

    Yup I like it too. The machines they use, one uses glass, and the other steel shot. I figured the steel shot would be too harsh on mating surfaces. Glass does a beutiful job on iron and is less harsh. But it definetly spooked me. Bolt holes 2,5,6 (right bank) had glass media in them. On my third pass something just felt funny. So just out of curiosity I made a 4th just to check if I was going nuts and those three turned again on the same torque setting then stopped. Sure enough pull the head and the gasket had begun to walk. So as soon as I get the heads back from being checked to make sure they're still true it's back to the drawing board. No harm no foul tho I can live with catching the mistake sooner than later. It would have been a mess that only would have been caught after a fire up and an initial run down the road. By then there would have been oil and coolant fixed everywhere. Since my turbines are oil cooled it would have possibly taken both of them too.. Can we say, phew!!

    him at the light and rolled down my window and told him to listen to his car now. I was like "Your shitty muffler fell off when you gunned it back there." Needless to say I laughed my ass of the whole way home.

    Thanx!
    I've had her for about 5 years now. I grabbed her from a bunch of yoyo's whom did'nt know how to fix it. So when it quit running right over a simple EGR they just parked it. I went and bought and EGR valve before I even made an offer. I went back the next day told them I'd give them nomore than $1800 for a car that did'nt run. Of coures they jumped on that price (car was worth 2600 book in good condition) like vultures.. Pretty sure they thought I was an idiot.. They were'nt laughing much when I fixed it inside of 10 min. and fired it up in their driveway. It was garage kept till they could'nt figure out how to keep it running. So they pushed it outside and let it just sit there.. Car had less than 100k on it back then.. The TDC scares alot of folks I think because of its complexity and the fact that few mechanics will either touch it or know how to work on one around here anymore.. A few of the more modern motors such as the Caddy Northstar owe their existance to the Twin Dual Cam. (TDC)

    Funniest part is when folks tell me it's too big to be fast.. BS, the car is only a grand total of 6 inches longer than my Camaro, and only has about 300 lbs over it as well.. It had no trouble keeping up and eventually passing my Camaro when the TDC was totally stock. After a full custom built exhaust, new ECM and stage 3 chip and some timing adjustments, custom built true CAI and a bunch of other goodies it ran rings around the Camaro. My wife was afraid of it cause it could break traction between 30-40 mph As far as I can tell through a sh&t ton of research there is no one out there whom has done a TT TDC setup. A few have built single turbo TDC's but none have attempted to do what I'm doing to her.. There's nearly no after market for the engine so a whole sh&t ton of one offs has to be made for this project, I ran out of time before the winter and work has had me almost completely booked sold this winter. So I've had to stop for now, and only take on smaller projects that I can get done relatively quickly.. Rught now I've started a full top-end refreash on the Camaro. Later anfter the TDC is complete she will move into her old bay and get preped for a blower..

    I've been so busy with work. TT project has all but stopped for now. The Camaro popped a lower intake gasket so it's the current project right now.. Welcome back.

    Well if work ever lets up I'll be good to go on it. I also have a 2-1/2 year old getting special instruction 4 days a week. But I'd like to be done with it by summer for obvious reasons (track is open for test and tune and such).
