If the Honda Civic Type R crate engine was a little too “boring” for you, how about something a lot bigger? At the ongoing SEMA Show, Mopar, which is part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), has introduced a new 6.2 litre supercharged HEMI V8 crate engine – dubbed the “Hellcrate.”

If you hadn’t already figured it out, that is the same powerplant used in the Dodge Hellcat, with 707 hp and 881 Nm of torque on tap. Supplementing the crate engine is the Mopar Hellcrate HEMI Engine Kit, which you’ll have to purchase together with the engine to qualify for a three-year/unlimited mileage warranty.

Said kit includes a powertrain control module (PCM), power distribution centre, engine wiring harness, chassis harness, accelerator pedal, ground jumper, oxygen sensors, charge air temperature sensors and fuel pump control module. The company states the kit is optimised for use with manual transmissions, such as the Tremec Magnum.

Further parts – alternator, power steering pump, belts, pulleys and more – can be had with the optional Front End Accessory Drive (FEAD) Kit. According to Mopar, these kits provide relatively simple “plug and play” with the 6.2 litre V8, and are intended for use in pre-1976 street and off-road vehicles.

Prices start at US$19,530 for the crate engine, while the Engine Kit can be purchased for US$2,195. The kits ship in a unique packaging featuring the Hellcrate logo, and includes in-depth information sheets with helpful installation tips and requirements.
