Mopar Debuts New 707HP “Hellcrate” at SEMA
The automotive world is staying busy with all of the things debuting at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) in Las Vegas, and that includes those of us at Miami Lakes Automall, because one of our biggest partners debuted a pretty cool new system. At this year’s SEMA, Mopar decided to get in on the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon game by designing a Demon Crate of their own – the Mopar “Hellcrate.”
The Mopar “Hellcrate“ is a 6.2-liter supercharged Crate HEMI® Engine Kit that gives a vehicle the same 707-horsepower engine found on the Dodge SRT Hellcat models. The Mopar “Hellcrate” is the first factory-backed engine kit that produces up to 707 horsepower. The kit itself is a collection of components chosen and designed to add horsepower and torque to an already installed engine. It includes a powertrain control module (PCM), power distribution center, engine wiring harness, chassis harness, accelerator pedal, ground jumper, oxygen sensors, charge air temperature sensors, and fuel pump control module for the 6.2-liter supercharged Crate HEMI Engine kit.
The “Hellcrate” is intended for pre-1976 vehicles and is designed with a simple “plug and play” installation for easy assembly. An essential Front End Accessory Drive (FEAD) Kit is also available to assist DIYers that wish to install the kit components themselves. The starting MSRP for the kit is $2,195; with assembly, the price MSRP comes out to $19,530.
