The engine is, of course, the heart of the beast. Basically, a stock 2002 engine with a T-Bird SC Eaton supercharger (Carlisle GM show) attached to it via a custom welded aluminum intake. The overkill belt drive bracket and tensioner are completely home-made. A 2v Holley truck carb was used, but sits on the intake the wrong way so can starve for fuel in some turns. There's a Stahl header on the other side (came on car #1) and a huge 3.5" exhaust system that exits out the right quarter panel after running through a custom chamber in the floor. This had to be done for ground clearance after lowering the car. The radiator is a VW unit and the water pump drive is an electric motor. The heating system was completely removed. There's a Nitrous Express system to add a little extra to the 14lbs of supercharger boost we have normally.
