DODGE'S NEW 1000HP 426 CRATE ENGINE – TAGGED THE HELLEPHANTDate: 2018-11-04
Dodge has stunned the world with its new 1000hp 426 crate engine, tagged the Hellepant, and it looks wicked.
There are fewer platforms more synonymous with brute horsepower than the legendary 426 HEMI. Decades ago, Mopar changed the game forever with the release of the HEMI, so named for it’s trademark hemispherical combustion chamber.
The cylinder head design offered greater efficiency and allowed for insane horsepower levels, especially when combined with a supercharger.
The original 426 HEMI is the basis for the engines used in modern top fuel dragsters and funny cars that crank out 11,000 horsepower and cover the 1,000 foot drag strip in 3.6 seconds at over 330 mph.
