Power Train

Engine size and Horsepower
348

Tell us about any engine modifications
The 348 has a FAST EZ-EFI set up I installed with Aeromotive bypass fuel pressure regulator and Aeromotive fuel filter. A stainless fuel tank from Rick's Hot Rods rounds out the system. The FAST throttle body sits atop an Edelbrock Performer intake. A black aluminum Proform air cleaner and Edelbrock black finned valve covers finish the look. Ceramic coated Doug's Tri-Y headers and T304 stainless exhaust pipes and Flowmaster Hushpower II mufflers keep her sounding nice.
