A brand-new 5.3L GM Gen III V8, computer, and wiring harness from Turn Key Engine Supply were installed. A K&N air filter, coated HPC headers, and an Aero Stealth 200 muffler were chosen to help breathing. The Mount Logan aluminum radiator with Spal electric fan keeps the 5.3 cool. A Vanco Hydroboost brake system supplies plenty of power to the disc brakes on all four corners. An Optima RedTop sealed battery sits in the stock battery tray.
