Hello from the northwest

Hey guys and girls I rescently left the performance Subaru scene in search for something that could do a little more than just conquer the northwestern twisted back country. I came across a 96' powerstroke longbed extended cab with 124k miles and a blown tranny. I picked it up for $500. Needs a few minor things other than just the tranny but nothing crazy. Has a protech headache rack and tool box as well as a 4" turboback and a banks tuning chip. I just purchased a stage two transmission kit and should have the.rebuild done sometime next week. I'm looking to pull as much power and fuel mileage out of my bolt on build that I can. And stay within a limited budget. Ill be adding a fmic, possibly a different Turbo, injectors, and eventually a full biodiesel conversion(not 100% sure what's required but I'm sure ill be able to find the build here). I'm excited to start my Ford adventure and get to know my fellow Ford enthusiasts.

I figured I'd do a fallow up with a picture. The transmission has been rebuilt with the stage two kit, also installed a custom billet torque converter. The steering column has been replaced and I just got my nardi wheel in just waiting on the hub to install. Also got single piece headlights and new tails that should all be going in over the weekend. Thanks for the welcomes!
