If only our project trucks looked this good under the hood. Stuffed under the cage is a big 521ci Ford Big Block V-8 engine pushing out over 600 horsepower. Helping achieve all those ponies are Ford Motorsport Super Cobra Jet aluminum heads, Eagle crank, Crane hydraulic roller cams, Holley 850 carb, NGK plugs, Eagle rods and SRP pistons. The oil system is a Barnes external wet sump and cooling comes from a Ford Motorsport water pump. A Wrangler NW alternator turns 200 amps using an MSD 6AL ignition and an Optima Yellow Top battery. Spirit made sure the intake was painted to match the exterior of the truck as well. This may not be a show truck but we know it'd bring home a few trophies.
