All motor, no forced induction at all.

So much power he almost loses control the first time. Info from 2 of the comments below the video:

"399ci smallblock with sb2 heads 14.5 to 1, Davinci 1450 cfm carb."

"the motor in this car is an sb2.2 smallblock (399ci) no nitrous, made 880hp at the engine shop. the weight is 2900 lbs."

14.5 to 1 is equal to what a supercharger or turbo produces inside a combustion chamber.

Brake Light doesn't work, outside right. That would get me a ticket around here. Great track car.

I was going to say no, stock honda civic engine, which is why the ricers rule. But I'll be good and say yes, it's been modded.

That is a full race engine.
The sb2 was developed for NASCAR I believe.
