In essence, the engine is an '01 Roush Stage III 4.6 with an Eaton supercharger. Joe added a Metco Motorsports 2.57-inch pulley, an '03 Cobra heat exchanger and expansion tank, and a JLT Performance cold air to maximize the combination, which made 420 hp and 423 lb-ft of torque on Cincy Speed's Dynojet, and not in the best conditions. At Edgewater Raceway at the end of the 2009 season, Joe ran an 11.50 at 121 mph. "I need an antiroll bar bad," Joe says. Evidently the car likes to pick up the driver-side wheel while the passenger-side wheel is still on the ground. Joe hopes for 10.90s once everything is ironed out. We think the engine compartment reflects the details he brings to the table thanks to his career as an aircraft mechanic.
