It’s 4/26/19- Hemi Day!
Dodge has announced that the order books are now open for the “Hellephant”- Mopar’s supercharged 426 Hemi crate engine.
Since the 2018 SEMA show, over 1,000 orders have been taken.
The motor carries Part No. P5160194 with a price tag of $29,995. That translates to the low price of $29.99 per hp., a price that will be recognized as a relative bargain by anyone who has tried to achieve 1,000 horsepower on their own.
Chrysler says its Hellephant engine installation kit, Part No. 77072500, will be a "plug and play" experience for the seasoned engine installer; it's priced at $2,265. Additional products designed to streamline the installation of the Hellephant include the Front End Accessory Drive (FEAD) kit, an A/C Expansion kit, the Exhaust Manifold kit, a Rear Sump Oil Pan kit, and a 45-degree oil filter. Prices for those weren't announced yet but will be ready to preorder on FCA's Mopar product website.
Mopar plans to celebrate the event by sharing Hemi-themed content on the brand's social channels throughout the day.
