For motivation, Kurt contacted Muscle Motors Performance, which built a 5.0 using a stock bottom end with SRP pistons, a Ford Racing Performance Parts X303 cam, FRPP GT40X aluminum heads, FRPP 1.6 roller rockers, and a Cobra intake. Behind the small-block Kurt added a Tremec TKO with a Centerforce clutch, a B&M Ripper shifter, and a McLeod scattershield. Exhaust components consist of BBK long-tube headers with a matching BBK high-flow H-pipe and a MAC after-cat.

A MAC cold-air kit utilizes a K&N filter and a Pro-M 75mm mass air meter to connect outside air with a MAC 70mm throttle body. Out back resides an Auto Weld 9-inch housing filled with a Currie third member, an Auburn differential, Dutchman 31-spline axles, and 3.50 gears.
