Under the hood is a 383ci Chevy V-8. The folks at Midwest Engines in Cape Girardeau did all the machine work and the engine was designed to generate its horsepower and torque at low rpm. It creates an estimated 420 horsepower and 435 lb-ft of torque at only 2,200 rpm. The engine features JE pistons; a Comp Cams roller camshaft, triple valvesprings and roller rockers; Gibson headers; and Flowmaster mufflers. All of the custom wiring was made by J.R. Robbs in Lesterville. Bolted to the powerplant is a TH350 transmission with a Precision Industries torque converter. The transmission has an auxiliary cooler and a B&M shifter.
