Mopar to Unveil “Hellcrate” HEMI Engine Kit at SEMA Show in Las Vegas


FCA US’ service, parts, and customer care brand Mopar will unveil a 6.2-liter supercharged Crate HEMO Engine Kit — nicknamed the Hellcrate — during the SEMA Show in Las Vegas from Oct. 31-Nov. 3.

Intended for pre-1976 street and off-road vehicles, the kit’s packaging features the Hellcrate’s logo and includes installation tips and requirements.

“Never before has a supercharged, factory-direct 707-horsepower crate engine kit been offered, and we are proud to be the first to deliver a solution enthusiasts have demanded,” says Pietro Gorlier, head of parts and service (Mopar), FCA. “This ultimate powertrain option fits the needs of owners and fans who demand iconic performance.”

The kit includes a powertrain control module (PCM), a power distribution center, engine wiring harness, chassis harness, accelerator pedal, ground jumper, oxygen sensors, change air temperature sensors, and a fuel pump control module for the engine.

The PCM is unlocked and set to the factory 707-horsepower calibration, while the Hellcrate is optimized for use with manual transmission, such as the Tremec Magnum transmission kit.

An essential Front End Accessory Drive Kit, including an alternator, power steering pump, belts, pulleys, and more, is among accessory hardware components available to assist in installing the Mopar Hellcrate HEMI engine kit.

The Hellcrate has a MSRP of $19,530, and the engine kit is available for $2,195. Following the Hellcrate’s unveiling, Mopar will debut other products during its SEMA presentation, which is scheduled for Tuesday at 7:26 p.m.
