Kinda lame numbers, guessing most of the price is for aluminum not performance numbers.


"The new Mopar 426 Hemi Crate Engine is all-aluminum and carries ratings of 540 horsepower and 530 pound- feet of torque for a $13,675 price tag."

Thats decent for a crate engine from them, the aluminum block is a big step foward for them. Block alone my guess is $3300

Your missing the point I think. I agree GM has some more powerful options for sure but there isn't a Mopar guy on the face of the earth that would do that...LOL This is a good step for Mopar, utilizing the name and the aluminum.

But still and all aluminum big block 426 hemi, with performance numbers of a iron SB V8 on pump gas.


Thing should come with 800-1000HP as a base engine.
