No, that's not the same engine that came with this '86 Ford. Kenny gutted an '89 Ford Mustang and stole the 302ci V-8 from under its hood. To get the engine pushing over 300 horsepower, it was bored 0.30 over, modified with GT40 heads, E303 Ford cam, 24-pound injectors, and a Cobra intake manifold. Torque Monster headers were also added running to a custom build Howard's muffler system. KW also built the C6 Ford transmission with a full roller, TCS torque converter, bolt-on tail shaft, five-disc clutch packs and Fluidyne coolers.
