Enthusiasts demanded it, and now the Mopar brand is unleashing a new Mopar 6.2-liter supercharged Crate HEMI® Engine Kit — nicknamed the “Hellcrate” — that injects 707 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque under the hood. The Mopar “Hellcrate” HEMI Engine Kit, the first-ever supercharged, 707-horsepower factory-backed crate engine kit, will debut in the brand’s 15,345-square-foot exhibit at the 2017 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show, scheduled for Oct. 31 to Nov. 3.
The release of the new Mopar “Hellcrate” HEMI Engine Kit will be followed by the unveiling of additional high-profile news during the brand’s Mopar SEMA product presentation, scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 31 at 7:26 p.m. ET/4:26 p.m. PT.

“Never before has a supercharged, factory-direct 707-horsepower crate engine kit been offered, and we are proud to be the first to deliver a solution enthusiasts have demanded,” said Pietro Gorlier, Head of Parts and Service (Mopar), FCA. “This ultimate powertrain option fits the needs of owners and fans who demand iconic performance.”
The new Mopar “Hellcrate” HEMI Engine kit provides relatively simple “plug and play” with the 6.2-liter supercharged Crate HEMI Engine assembly — also available from Mopar. The Mopar “Hellcrate” HEMI Engine Kit marries modern 707 horsepower with authentic, factory-backed quality.
The kit 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. The PCM is unlocked and set to the factory 707- horsepower calibration. The Mopar “Hellcrate” HEMI Engine Kit is optimized for use with manual transmissions, such as the Tremec Magnum transmission kit.
An essential Front End Accessory Drive (FEAD) Kit, which includes an alternator, power steering pump, belts, pulleys and more, is among additional engine accessory hardware components available to assist in installing the Mopar “Hellcrate” HEMI Engine Kit.
The kit, intended for pre-1976 street and off-road vehicles, ships in unique packaging featuring the “Hellcrate” logo and includes in-depth information sheets with helpful installation tips and requirements.
The Mopar “Hellcrate” 6.2-liter supercharged Crate HEMI Engine assembly (Part Number 68303089AA) is available for a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $19,530. The Mopar “Hellcrate” 6.2-liter supercharged Crate HEMI Engine Kit (Part Number 77072452AB) is available at an MSRP of $2,195.
The Mopar “Hellcrate” HEMI Engine Kit and Mopar “Hellcrate” 6.2-liter supercharged Crate HEMI Engine assembly feature a Mopar three-year/unlimited mileage warranty when purchased together.

1970 Plymouth Superbird Tribute featuring Mopar “Hellcrate” HEMI Engine Kit
Mark Worman, star of Velocity’s Graveyard Carz vehicle restoration television show, helped Mopar introduce the brand’s 345 and 392 Crate HEMI Engine Kits last year at the SEMA Show. Worman returns to Las Vegas with a fresh new Mopar build, this time a 1970 Plymouth Superbird Tribute fueled by the plug and play capabilities of the new Mopar “Hellcrate” 6.2-liter supercharged Crate HEMI Engine Kit.
A top Mopar enthusiast and brand ambassador, Worman and his Graveyard Carz team embarked on a faithful clone restoration of the Limelight Green Superbird, but decided to tweak the “Bird” to truly make it fly with 707 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque.
To do so, Worman dropped in the Mopar “Hellcrate” HEMI Engine Kit and 6.2-liter supercharged Crate HEMI Engine assembly in the Superbird clone. Power is put to the ground via a Tremec Magnum six-speed manual transmission kit. Engine accessory hardware components used in the build include the Front End Accessory Drive (FEAD) Kit.
Worman also sourced installation and restoration parts, such as the complete interior, dash assembly, exterior trim, wheels and wiring harnesses for the Superbird through Classic Industries, one of the largest, most trusted licensees of restoration and performance parts in the country. Last year at SEMA, Mopar announced a team-up with Classic Industries to provide web, technical and parts location assistance for enthusiasts seeking to restore their vintage Mopar rides.
