Power is most definitely not a problem, thanks to the smog-legal GM 6.2L E-ROD LS3 V-8 crate engine. It's wired up using the GM Performance E-ROD wiring harness and features a custom dual exhaust system featuring 2.5-inch-diameter, mandrel-bent, 304 stainless-steel tubing, custom mufflers, and Stainless Works tips. The engine is cooled via a Be Cool four-row radiator with 16-inch-diameter cooling fan. This engine produces approximately 430 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 424 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm. Also under the hood is a Premier Power Welder system and Optima battery. Power is routed through a DC Customs-built 4L80E automatic transmission with Derale cooler and a slew of TCI components including Breakaway torque converter and transmission controller with paddle shift upgrade. Also visible in this photo is the front shock tower connecting crossmember that adds strength to the DC Customs frame rail reinforcement kit with integrated coil/bypass shock mounting.
