| Boost pressure, normally set at 30 psi, is monitored by HKS' EVC EZ boost controller, which is mounted in the center dash next to Shepherd's nitrous activation switch.
| Shepherd switched from 20G turbo to a custom T4 unit that mates to an HKS exhaust manifold for his assault on single-digit e.t.s.
| Shepherd installed a larger Buschur Racing intercooler, which relies on a big 22x14-in Spearco core to ensure efficient operation of the Talon's forced induction system.
| For extra "oomph," a 100-hp shot of Nitrous Express laughing gas can be activated by a toggle switch mounted where the factory stereo would be in your average road-going Talon.
| Fuel, ignition and nitrous management duties are handled by a Pro EFI stand-alone computer, which basically replaces the car's ECU with a lap-top programmable set-up.
| In true sleeper fashion, the car's exterior does not overtly state this Talon's 9-second nature, but a peek inside the Spartan cockpit might give you some clues.
