Utilizing an FRPP Aluminator as a base, the engine's top end consists of shaved heads to arrive at an 11.25:1
compression ratio. Of the top-end components used, the FR500 cams and intake, and 34-lb/hr injectors are no longer
available from Ford Racing. Joe says that for the longest time Kelly bugged him to put nitrous on the Mach. Finally,
she bought a daily driver and gave Joe an ultimatum. Either Joe was to get a nitrous kit installed or she would. Of
course, the car received a nitrous kit before installing the new engine, and Joe spurred the Mach to a 10.97 at 122
mph. It's best NA run in its current form is an 11.64 at 119 mph.
