A Jaguar S-Type R 4.2L engine was shoehorned into the engine compartment with barely enough room for the big heads or factory supercharger made by Eaton. Everything else is custom-made: from the polished stainless steel headers (can't get that over the counter!) that run back to Borla mufflers to the re-configured serpentine belt system (because some of the components, like the idler arm, stick out too far on the factory engine for a hot rod application, California Street Rod's Gary Hetrick had to create new parts to keep everything tight). A new engine wiring harness and engine management system was designed and built by Neil Vasada of Apex Speed Technology.
