A fuel-injected GM Vortec 5.3L V-8 engine propels the buggy and it has been fitted with a 150 horsepower Cold Fusion nitrous kit. Other mods include Hooker Block Hugger headers, an Injection Technology wiring harness, and a pair of Optima RedTop batteries. A Griffin Radiator with 16-inch electric fan helps keep the engine in its happy place when it comes to temperature. Another cool feature of the rig is that there’s a separate power steering pump for the front and rear steering and these pumps are mounted on a custom bracket made by Metal Fusion. Engine power flows downstream through a TH350 transmission with manual valvebody to an Advance Adapters Atlas four-speed transfer case.
