I can't remember anything else about the motor other than it was small and an easy fit. They used a tricked out steering system and did away with the straight front axle and I think used an air bag suspension. Anyway, if you can look at a copy of the show it might give you some ideas.
The builder is from Houston. He built my son's Avalanche(when it was brand new). Air bags all around, it would drop to the ground with the front wheels vertical. Usually they camber in. With all the work and a fancy paint job, it made Trucking magazine's cover and center fold. Was also in House of Colors booth at SEMA. The guy does great work.

Jag 6 would be fine! A BMW 6 is another possibility. The LF4 is a good engine, a little pricey right now for what I'm doing, but nice power output. A BMW N54 is a twin turbo I-6 that will do 500hp pretty easy. Or 300hp stock is fine, too. Not sure what to do about a transmission though. Could be a black hole of BMW goodness ($).
