Hellephant Motor Price, Specs – The 7.0-liter (426 cubic-inch) supercharged V8 gains traction thanks to a larger bore and stroke (4.125 x 4.0) and the block is aluminum, unlike the lower cast iron end of the engine Hellcat. The Hellephant box comes complete with a water pump, steering wheel, oil pan, booster, compressor with throttle body, fuel injectors and batteries. According to Mopar, purchased with the cash register engine, it is a relatively simple “plug-and-play kit” for experienced installers. It is designed to be installed on pre-1976 street and off-road vehicles, but hopefully we’ll see one at SEMA next year on a Fiat 124 Spider.
Mopar brings the nickname “426” back to its next 1,000 horsepower cash engine. Yes, you read correctly: The Hellephant, a game about the old 426 Hemi’s name being the elephant’s engine, will reach four digits for power and yield 950 lb-ft of torque. It was presented today at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Mopar has actually installed the new generator in a 68 charger, which he calls the “super charger”. It will go on sale in the first quarter of next year.
You will need the Mopar FEAD kit, which includes front attachments such as alternator, power steering pump, belts, pulleys, etc. Like the Hellcrate engine, it comes with a water pump, flywheel, oil pan, sump, supercharger with throttle body, fuel injectors and coil packs. As with Hellcrate, a complete accessory drive kit (including an alternator, a power steering pump, belts, pulleys, etc.) and a complete electronic kit including a powertrain control module, a wiring harness and even a by-wire accelerator.
All of this promises an easy turnkey operation for everything from drag racing to hot-rod use. The engine will be handcrafted in Michigan and put up for sale in the first quarter of 2019. The price has not been released yet, but expect to pay well north of the asking price of $ 19,530 by the Hellcrate, which does not include the $ 2,195 electronic component. integration kit. The heads are essentially shared with the Demon, and the camshaft uses variable valve timing, but has a higher lift to withstand the larger airflow needed to generate more than 1,000 horsepower. All internal components are forged to withstand cylinder pressures and allow the engine to run at 7,000 rpm. These forged internals are also likely to be offered separately.
