The rig is Blue Oval-powered by a fuel-injected 460ci big-block V-8 that puts out an estimated 400 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque. It has a Comp Cams camshaft and rockers, Accel coil, Summit Racing one-wire alternator, dual batteries, homemade long-tube headers, and Dynatech mufflers. Helping to keep the engine cool is a Howe aluminum radiator with dual 16-inch push/pull electric fans. Power is routed through a Latham-built C6 transmission that is heavily modified including five clutches and plates in all drums, manual valvebody, a low-ratio kit for First and Second gear, hardened input shaft, and TCI cast aluminum pan. The trans is cooled by a Permacool cooler with integrated fan (located underneath the driver-side floorboard). The NP205 transfer case has been clocked vertical and has High Angle Driveline flanges. It is controlled by a twin-stick setup. The driveshafts were made by Fry’s Machine in Winnemucca, Nevada, and have 1350 U-joints.
