1968 Dodge “Super Charger” Concept, powered by the new 1,000 horsepower “Hellephant” 426 Supercharged Mopar Crate HEMI® Engine and Kit.

The “Hellephant” 

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 1968 Dodge “Super Charger” Charger Concept incorporates modern touches, including the new 1,000 horsepower “Hellephant” 426 Supercharged Mopar Crate HEMI® Engine, shown in background, to reimagine one of the most iconic vehicles ever built by FCA US.

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.

The complete engine assembly includes a water pump, flywheel, front sump oil pan, supercharger with throttle body, fuel injectors and coil packs. The engine can be paired with the Mopar “Hellephant” 426 Supercharged Mopar Crate HEMI Engine Kit for relatively simple plug-and-play by experienced installers. The engine assembly and kit are designed for installation on pre-1976 street and off-road vehicles.

The “Hellephant” 426 Supercharged Mopar Crate HEMI® Engine is a Mopar-first for a 1,000 horsepower crate engine kit offered by an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM)

Dropping in the “Hellephant” is almost turnkey with the engine kit, which includes a powertrain control module (PCM), power distribution center, engine wiring harness, chassis harness, accelerator pedal, ground jumper, oxygen sensors, charge air temperature sensors, fuel pump control module and CAN bus interface device. The kit ships in unique packaging, featuring the “Hellephant” logo and includes in-depth information sheets with helpful installation tips and requirements.

The 1968 Dodge “Super Charger” Concept, revealed on October 30, 2018, at the Mopar SEMA Show press briefing in Las Vegas, is the perfect package for highlighting the new “Hellephant” 426 Supercharged Mopar Crate HEMI® Engine and Kit.
