The engine compartment componentry includes:

  • DART-blocked, all-aluminum 427 Ford Windsor stroker built by Keith Craft [engine dyno’d at 612 hp/615 lbs.-ft. torque]
  • Scat forged internals
  • AFR-225 heads
  • Edelbrock Victor Jr. intake
  • Canton oil pan
  • Mezziere electric water pump
  • Pete Jackson gear-drive timing set
  • MSD ignition ensemble
  • Holley 770 cfm Street Avenger carburetor
  • ceramic-coated (silver/chrome) headers & sidepipes

The small block that acts and sounds like a big block! You’ll have the best of both worlds in this Backdraft Racing roadster. The power and sound of a big block—but the weight, easy accessibility, and air circulation of a small block. I can’t count the number of times someone has said “nice big block!” as I idled past. This car is full of surprises! Don’t let this Backdraft’s beauty fool you…  under the hood, it’s all business!
