At 2018 SEMA, Mopar introduced its latest creation based on 1968 Dodge Charger and turned it into a Super Charger. Dodge Super Charger offers an astonishing 1,000hp and 1,288Nm of torque with the help of ‘Hellephant’ 426 Hemi. The name ‘Hellephant’ pays tribute to the iconic Mopar’s 426 Hemi engine. It was nicknamed as elephant because of its size and power. The supercharger measures a 6980cc and features 4 inches of stroke and bore specs at 4.125 inches. Supercharger is an improved unit with a high-efficiency rotor mounted on the all-aluminum block. Thus, Dodge Super Charger is a beast to say the least.
Mopar will be offering complete engine assembly that consists of a water pump, flywheel, front sump oil pan, supercharger with throttle body, fuel injectors and coil packs along with the 1,000hp crate engine. It will enable “Hellephant” for an easy plug-and-play installation provided done by experienced engineers. The engine assembly and kit are designed that can be used on pre-1976 street and off-road vehicles. Engine also gains Challenger Hellcat Redeye’s valve covers and valve train whereas locks and retainers are shared with the Demon. Special high-lift cam has been incorporated along with custom forged pistons.
