While other hot-rod builders focus on sleek exterior finishes and flamboyant interior trimmings, Eddie’s Chop Shop leaves the appearance alone and concentrates on... power!

As the car’s body if finished in “bare metal”, the engine is what it makes it special. The nasty 598 cubic inch (9.7-liter) big-vlock V8 was nicely crafted to support two turbochargers. Clean and still mean looking, the engine was put together by Don Zemina of Motor Machine Super Shop, featuring JE pistons, Callies crankshaft and connecting rods, Smith Brothers pushrods and Isky lifters among other performance parts.

The dyno run in the video came out with a peak power output of 1,250 hp, but the builder said that with further tuning, it can easily produce a massive 1,700 horsepower. Being made for drag-racing, the car is built on a complete aluminum tubular spaceframe and features chunky rear slick tires at the back, to plant all that power to the strip.
