Performance

FormaCars ‘33 Hot Rod comes with a generation 2 5.0 L 435-HP Ford Coyote V8 Engine with a FormaCars designed cold air intake and MT82 6-speed manual transmission. The generation 2 Ford Coyote is a robust modern engine that is well known for durability, thrilling power, and reliability. Being a light cast aluminum engine with 400 ft. lbs of torque burning out, smoking tires, getting in and out of curves quickly, and being one of the fastest vehicles on the street will prove easy with this setup.

With silky smooth shifting, FormaCars advanced precision engineered MT82 Shifter Conversion Kit allows for the transmission designed for the Coyote engine to be used in the ‘33 Hot Rod. This conversion allows for the shifter to be located in the ideal location for a great shifting experience and response.

The FormaCars designed cold air intake is engineered to pull in the freshest and coolest air. This allows for overall better performance and encouraging a race worthy performance setup.
