Steeda Autosport springs reside at each corner to bring the coupe closer to earth, helping the chrome '99 Cobra wheels fill the gaps. Nitto 555 Extreme ZR 245/45 radials ride shotgun, while Mickey Thompson E/T Street radials bite for traction out back. The Cobra wheels hide Cobra brakes with Mach 1 calipers up front and Cobra brakes out back.

The interior of Paul's coupe boasts '94-and-up GT cloth seats, Steeda Autosports white-face gauges, an FRPP shift knob, and a leather parking-brake boot. Like Joe's Mach, Paul's coupe also has a Steeda Autosports Tri-Ax shifter protruding through the tunnel.

MG Race Engines built a sweet 306 with D.S.S. Trick Flow-specific pistons to mate the short-block to Twisted Wedge heads, which Paul's dad, Gene, treated to a port job prior to being flowed and assembled by Bennett Racing. The heads feature 2.02/1.60 valves and Comp valvesprings, and Comp Pro Magnum 1.6 roller rockers. Paul paired the Trick Flow heads with a Holley SysteMAX II intake with a BBK/Edelbrock 70mm throttle body and a C&L Performance 76mm mass air meter with a Trueflow intake pipe.
