Fox Body Mustang with a 5.7 L HEMI V8

Paul Anagnos’ Fox Body Mustang was built to drag race. Inside the cabin is a 10-point roll cage and it rides on a complete drag racing suspension. But the most interesting part (to us) is what’s powering this hatch. Under the hood sits a 5.7 L HEMI V8 from a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It runs off a 2005 Ram ECU with a Hemifever tune and a custom harness made by Chris Squire from Hot Wire Auto. Even though the engine is completely stock (including exhaust manifolds) it was enough to get the 2,840 lb hatch down the track in 12.0 sec at 110 mph in the quarter-mile. The rest of the drivetrain consists of a Chrysler 545RFE five-speed automatic transmission from a 2005 Ram with an Edge Racing Converters 3400 stall converter, a custom driveshaft made locally, and a Ford 8.8″ rear end with 3.73 gears.
