They first started off by removing the factory frame and installing a FAST TRACK IRS chassis made for Tri-Five Chevys. This gave the car a very strong foundation, lowered ride height, C6 Corvette spindle/hub assembly, and mounts to allow for a modern V8.

They decided to go with a Magnuson supercharged 454 CI LSx built by Don Hardy Race Cars. Behind the engine sits a Bowler upgraded 4L60E automatic transmission.

Editor’s Note: We couldn’t find the actual numbers but it should be producing somewhere between 650-800 horsepower.
