A 350ci GM Ram Jet V-8 sits nestled in the chassis and Naeger estimates its output at 350 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. However, a flick of a switch activates a NOS fogger kit from Redline Performance that offers another 150 horsepower. The engine is fitted with 24-pound injectors (replacing the stock 22-pound injectors) and Hedman headers and it’s cooled by a mid-mounted C&R Racing radiator with a 16-inch-diameter electric fan. Other mods include a Painless Performance wiring harness and a pair of Optima YellowTop batteries. Power is routed through a Transmissions To Go-prepped TH400 transmission with a manual valve body, Stef’s pan, and a Hurst Pistol-Grip shifter. A Sumner Machine Works NP203/205 doubler sends the power to the axles. On the rear of the transfer case is a custom brake rotor with two Wilwood four-piston calipers.
