What is bigger than a Hellcat and scariier than a demon? A 426-cubic-inch Hemi engine with a massive 3.0-liter superlaster bolted on it. Called "Hellephant", the new box engine from Mopar, has made its debut at the 2018 SEMA show in Las Vegas.
Hellephant makes a dizzying 1000 horsepower and 950 pounds of torque through the overloaded Hemi. It is the first box engine offered by a regular manufacturer to offer 1000 horsepower … which of course is a lot. The best part of this setup is that it's a plug-and-play device that simplifies the switching process for your soon-to-be-controllable project car.
"Our enthusiasts demand power and performance, and our new Hellephant Mopar Crate Hemi engine and kit provide great horsepower and torque in a unique and unique plug-and-play package," said Steve Beahm, Head of Parts and service to Mopar.
This means that you can order one of these monster pachyderms for your project and get all you need to get up and running. The engine assembly includes water pump, flywheel, oil boiler front, oil pump, throttle housing, fuel injectors and bobbin packs. The complete kit also includes the fuel control module, power distribution center, power line, chassis harness, throttle pedal, ground, oxygen sensors, charge temperature sensor, fuel pump control module, and camera bus interface.

To ensure the fewer trips to auto store or Mopar phone calls, also comes with Front End Accessory Drive kit, which includes generator, controller umpe, belts, pulleys and more, and are among several hardware hardware components to help with the installation.
To show off such a badass engine, the people at Mopar bought a 1968 Dodge Charger from a resident of southeast Michigan. According to Joe Dehner, leader of Mopar's design, it was important that the seller knew what would happen to the car. "We made sure to tell him we planned to change it. He just requested that we send him pictures of the finished work."
