Under the hood is a Cadillac 540ci V-8 and it has a Cadillac Motorsport Development aluminum intake, Holley 800cfm carburetor, custom headers, Painless Performance wiring, fan-equipped oil cooler, and an aluminum radiator with a 16-inch-diameter Spal electric fan. Wager estimates the engines output at around 650 lb-ft of torque at a lowly 2,000 rpm. Bolted to the ’plant is a rugged Ford T-19 four-speed manual transmission. Behind the T-19 is a NorthWest Fabworks BlackBox underdrive and Advance Adapters Atlas 3.8:1 ratio two-speed transfer case.
