Beneath that long hood, CUT48 called upon EDO competition to perform a power upgrade on the 5.4-litre supercharged V8 engine. Changes include optimised ECU software, modifications to the air intake and compressor, sport air filters, new exhaust manifolds and sport catalytic converters, which sees output rise to 538 kW (722 hp) and 890 Nm of torque, up from 460 kW (617 hp) and 780 Nm.
