Wright installed a new 1956 Corvette dual-quad 265 CI V-8 for the car, and speeds on the dry lakes rose from 93 MPH to 136 MPH. Later that year, Wright obtained a new-for-1957 283 CI Chevrolet engine and modified it with a custom crank, rods and cam, along with six Stromberg carburetors to create a 331 CI engine developing more than 350 HP. Wright was quite successful with his creation, with timing tags from June 1957 indicating a 143.6 MPH top speed.
