The Mustang originally came with a 289 ci Windsor V8 however now holds a Roush Yates Nationwide Nascar crate engine. The high-revving 357 ci V8 makes 750 horsepower and 580 lb-ft of torque through a four-barrel carburetor and features a dry-sump system. The Mustang rides on Mike’s custom suspension that he has been tweaking over the years. The rear features a rocker arm 3-link rear suspension.
