Nicest entro thread I've ever seen! Usually we have to beg for pictures, and then teach how to post them.

Yes sir it's a Bi-Turbo V6 so one turbo for each bank of 3 cylinders, that front mount intercooler is obviously not stock, in it's current format it pushes about 18 pounds of boost (stock is 6) and makes 380hp and 390tq at all 4 wheels (it still has stock turbos which have become the limiting factor, when they go it will get bigger turbos) . 0-60 it's no slouch but from 40-100+ is definitely where it stretches it's legs, not bad for an almost 4000 pound car that has 116k on the odo.

Welcome!

So are you at Firefighter with a welding fab company or is that two jobs you have?
I know some large industrial companies have internal private fire depts.

In fact the other day here in Ventura I saw a private rescue/ambulance truck for one of the environmental clean up companies.

Fire/Medic is one job, welding/fab is second job it was fulltime but now is part time, I do however do all of the welding for the department in house, mostly aluminum tig like diamond plate and stuff on the engines and ambulances. I also end up doing other mechanical fixes and maintenance since we are an hour from the closest diesel truck shop. And I ran all the gas lines in our database training tower.Sadly not many people are mechanically inclined these days...

Ya the welding has opened a lot of doors to fix things and make things that I would have to pay someone else for. For a while it was all that was putting food on the table, but I must say when I was doing it full time it became manotonous doing the same thing over and over every day.
