Power comes from four aluminum Ford 4.6 L modular V8s with each running a Weiand Teflon 6:71 superchargers and a custom supercharger manifold. Each engine produces 1,000 horsepower on two Holley 4150 double pumper carburetors giving the truck a total of 4,000 horsepower. The two front engines are mechanically connected to the rear engines. The rear engines are connected via a Gates 90 mm by 14 mm Poly Chain GT Carbon belt to the C7 Corvette transaxle.
