April 26th, 2019
Just in time for Hemi Day (4/26) pricing has been announced and order books opened for Mopar's supercharged 1000-hp 426 Hemi V-8 crate engine, or the Hellephant. It's reported that at $29.99 per pony, more than 1,000 people have already put their name in for one! You can add your name to the list here.
The annual celebration of all things HEMI, held on April 26 is in recognition of the historic 426 HEMI engine that debuted more than 50 years ago and ruled the street and track.
The Mopar “Hellephant” 426 Supercharged Crate HEMI Engine hits the magical 1,000 horsepower mark via bulked-up displacement, with 4.0 inches of stroke and bore specs at 4.125 inches. A supercharger with a high-efficiency rotor set is mounted on the all-aluminum block. The choice to use aluminum delivers significant weight savings to keep the “Hellephant” light.
The engine and kit’s distinctive “Hellephant” logo is a nod to the brand’s past and present, calling out the legendary 426 HEMI engine (nicknamed the “elephant” engine for its power and size), as well as the modern-day, 707-horsepower Mopar “Hellcrate” Engine, revealed at the 2017 SEMA Show,
