Some said it couldn't be done, but Jay Mingolelli was on a mission to prove the critics wrong. He took a Four-Valve modular engine and pushed into the 8-second zone in EFI-Renegade trim. That means he competes without an aftercooler/intercooler and uses an eight-rib drive system for his ProCharger F1R blower. The engine is tiny, too, as it checks in at 281ci. Mingolelli qualified with a 9.00 but has run 8.80s in Renegade competition.
