    Been a long time working on it now but finally getting down to getting ready to shove my new used engine in this pig.
    2000 7.3 Powerstroke 4x4 6 speed, 38r garret turbo, 238x 100% Hybrid Injectors, full Fuel system by Strictly Diesel, custom tunes by Gearhead Automotive via Hydra chip.

    Picked up a good compression, good running, non smoking engine a couple months ago with 206k on the clock. Been tearing it down and replacing all seals and such along the way. New Smith Brother pushrods, 910 comp springs, new valve seats, new injector cups, arp headstuds, fluid damper , International uppipes, and others I can't think of off top of my head.
    Shooting for 500+ hp and 1000+ tq

    Not the most up to date pic but have some more plans I hope to get to in the next couple months. Gonna be throwing on Ranch hand bumpers and maybe a single black stack in the bed.

    I can't believe you sold the mystic. Is it still in Tally or did it go somewhere else?

    Sucks you let it go, I love mystics! Definitely rarely see em but oddly enough I saw one two years ago at a car show in Monroe, LA which is about 45 minutes away from my home in Crossett, AR. If I ever see it again I'll have to ask the owner where it came from, ya never know it's a small world!

    It's very possible it was my car. I believe that is the area it went to.
