Central Florida Machine and Speed built the short-block using a Cobra crankshaft and Manley rods, pistons, and piston rings. After Chris Starnes ported the stock Three-Valve heads, they were fitted with Crane Cams custom-ground blower cams, stock followers and adjusters, and custom valvesprings. A stock intake resides up top with a Blue Oval twin 62mm throttle body. An SCT Big-Air mass air meter reads incoming air prior to entering a Vortech V-2 S-Trim supercharger capable of providing the built engine with 13 pounds of boost. When David Kicklighter owned the car, the combination was good for 584 hp and 10.70s in the quarter-mile. Since the engine's rebuild, Mike hasn't had it back to the track.
