There’s also the essential engine kit which is available separately and includes an unlocked powertrain control module, 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 engine. Mopar says that the Hellcrate is optimised for use with a manual transmission.

Additional accessory hardware includes the Front End Accessory Drive kit which comes with an alternator, power steering pump, belts, pulleys and more.

As for the price, the Mopar Hellcrate Engine assembly is priced at $19,530 MSRP while the engine kit is asking for $2,195. The engine and the engine kit are covered by an official three-year/unlimited mileage warranty when purchased together.

    cant wait to see how these get used.

      Dodge A100, Dodge D100, Ramcharger, Ram 1500, Chrylser 300, SRT Durango, Dodge Journey, and Jeep Wrangler. Those are some immediate swaps I can think of off the top of my head. I know they’ll be far more.

      • smartacus

        ya know how the Challenger/Charger
        R/T Scatpack replaces the 5.7 with the
        SRT 392’s 6.4 while lopping off $7-8 grand
        off the price?

        I wish they had an SRT Hell-Scat
        with the 707HP “Hellcrate” engine in there
        instead of the regular stock SRT 392
        while being a few grand cheaper
        than a full blown Hellcat !!

        • LWOAP

          I feel ya. That would been more affordable.

        • europeon

          Yeah, but you can’t really add a shaker hood scoop to the Hellcat engine.

          • smartacus

            true true.
            at least she still got 6-piston calipers and selectable
            modes for suspension, transmission, and steering.

      • Leconte Dave

        Alfa Romeo Giulia Hellcat?

    • David mcCreery

      Drop it in a Ram Rebel and make the TRX concept.

      • LWOAP

        Excellent idea.

  • Dennis James

    Trying to source a Ford Model T for conversion right now ! 🙂

  • Bash

    That actually made me happy. Can’t explain it tho. lol


    It only made sense to do this. Now Craig can get that Chrysler Imperial he always wanted.

  • Leconte Dave

    Let the swap madness begin


  • Matt

    Here’s some swap madness: Drop a 2.4 Tigershark into the Challenger Hellcat.

    It would have instant rarity value.

  • Shtekeris

    Now, this looks like a great interior decoration as well.


  • Tinky-Winky

    Put it in an old euro wagon and you’ll have a nice sleeper for the price of a new Passat.

  • nastinupe

    Put it in the back seat a Porsche 911 and make it a 707 hp mid engined monster.

    • SteersUright

      Drop it into a Miata or BRZ, lol.

      • nastinupe

        Wouldn’t work. The engine is too big and heavy. It would mess up the handling by hanging too far over the front axle.

        On the other hand the 911 has the rear seat area that is in the middle of the car that can be used to hold the engine. You could create a mid engined car with no backseat with the 911 and keep the car balanced.

  • SteersUright

    Expensive, but one helluva motor.
