The engine was built to make 800hp without nitrous. The Predator carb variable-venturi design eliminates the need for a choke and there is no hesitation thru the rpm range on a pre-warmed engine. The Monster powerplant was extremely hard to cool, so I had to have a special 5-core radiator built that would fit into the limited front-end space. The engine still taxed the limit of the cooling system, so I added an auxiliary radiator and electric fan. Now I can drive in rush hour traffic with no boil over. The engine bottom end was blueprinted and balanced.

Vega front-end with super heavy-duty front springs and gas shocks, racing ball-joints and bushings, 5-lug front disc brakes, full 2-in tube frame (front to back) with 4-point roll bar, driveshaft-loop, adjustable coil-overs and anti-sway bar in rear
Custom fully carpeted aluminum interior, leather Recaro front seats, Grant spoke steering wheel, digital meters and security system, Sun tach and full instrumentation, 100-amp boosted awia stereo system, dual hidden interior battery boxes with power cut-offs. The interior (except the roll bar) looks like it came from the factory as a two-seat wagon.
All body parts (except the fiberglass hood) are stock originals. The fiberglass hood was strengthened and works just like the original steel version, using the inside hood release to open.
