Under the hood sits a 4.0 L Barra inline-six built and tuned by Phantom Performance & Dyno in Mutdapilly, Queensland, Australia connected to a Powerglide two-speed transmission . The engine features ported head, nitrous, Garrett GT55 turbocharger, and Haltech Elite 2500 ECU. Running an upgraded fuel system with large injectors, the engine makes 1,600 horsepower to the rear wheels on methanol fuel.
