1994 Mark VIII RWD Teksid

I just located a Teksid engine, complete, 73,000 miles, with transmission. Pulled and loaded into my truck.
Maybe Ill have a forged engine built by May..... 2020

I have the same scrap yard looking for an MMC driveshaft while we are at it.

I am on borrowed time with 120,000 miles on the OEM engnie and Trilogy since 2010. OEM transmission is slipping and not too happy with the 433 RW HP.

After two cervical spine surgeries and the loss of my Son, its time to put something in the happy column.

$550. I'm sure it will take a lot more to get it where I want it. Always looking for help, and a deal.

Yeah, but you are still JACK!

The loss of our Son really knocked us all down. It's pretty unbearable most days.

Borrowed time with 120k??? I could understand the transmission slipping but I have 211k on my trilogy. im going to tear it apart in the next few weeks to do timing chains, tensioner, and guides, but itís still operating as it should.

Mine had 91,000 when I removed it to upgrade. Insides were still bright shiny aluminum!

Joe,

So sad to hear of your loss. Been almost three years for me, and the gaping hole in my life is still present.

Makes me cry to post it, but here is a picture of my pride and joy sitting in my Marauder, near Little Rock, during our first cross country Marauder trip. Thankfully, We both took the time to have two good (partial) cross country Marauder trips.

All the best to you in your families recovery. You are right that small victories are due, and we have got to create them when we can. Anything I can do, we can do to help let us know.

Grant

Yeah, presently, my engine is just fine. I'm not worried about as it sits. Loves 1/4 mile runs and narry a hiccup. No preignition, no issues. oil clean at 3,000 mile changes.

I am looking to head north of 650 HP. These damn Hellcats & Demons need some Mercury competition. I'm not sure I'll get there, but I sure am going to try.

I may have to go from Trilogy to Whipple. I may have to add NO2. I may have to remove my passenger and rear seats..... Hence the teksid and searching for a forged crank.

I'll definitely need wrinkle wall slicks!

(Please see my 'Go Fund Me' page) JK
