Amid a packed crowd of enthusiastic fans, Dodge//Mopar unveiled its Hellephant crate engine that packs 1,000 horsepower and 950 lb-ft of torque.
The crate engine features a 4.125-inch bore and a 4-inch stroke in its all-aluminum block, which is the same piece used in the Dodge//Mopar Challenger Drag Paks that compete in the NMCA Holley EFI Factory Super Cars.
The engine and kit is shod with a new Hellephant logo, harkening back to the original 426 Hemi’s nickname, and builds on the Hellcrate crate engine that Dodge//Mopar released last year at the SEMA show.
“Our enthusiasts crave power and performance and our new ‘Hellephant’ Mopar Crate HEMI engine and kit deliver huge horsepower and torque in a plug-and-play package that is unique in the industry,” said Steve Beahm, Head of Parts & Service (Mopar) and Passenger Car Brands, FCA – North America.
For ease of dropping in the new crate engine into your project, Dodge//Mopar offers the Hellephant 426 Supercharged Mopar Crate HEMI Engine Kit. The kit includes a powertrain control module (PCM), power distribution center, engine wiring harness, chassis harness, accelerator pedal, ground jumper, oxygen sensors, charge air temperature sensors, fuel pump control module and cam bus interface device. The PCM is unlocked and tuned to pump out 1,000 horsepower and 950 lb.-ft. torque.
The Hellephant goes on sale in the first quarter of 2019.
