    Chrysler's Mopar announces new Hemi crate engines will be added to performance parts

    AutoWeek
    Posted Date: 11/3/04

    Mopar, Chrysler Group’s parts and accessories brand, announced several additions to its Mopar Performance Parts line at the SEMA show, led by an all-new 5.7-liter Hemi crate engine, and crate versions of classic Hemi engines from the past.

    In addition, Mopar also announced an all-new Mopar Stage 3R Turbo Upgrade Kit the Dodge SRT4. The Stage 3R kit pushes the performance of the Dodge SRT4’s 2.4-liter turbocharged engine to 310 horsepower.

    "Mopar clearly recognizes the continuing growth of the aftermarket industry - particularly the performance parts and accessories arena," said Chris Cortez, Senior Vice President, Global Service and Parts. "The performance craze is only going to get bigger, so it’s important that we stay close to all of our customers -- muscle car enthusiasts, racing fans and those enamored with the street scene."

    Mopar’s SEMA theme is "Muscle, Street and Speed." According to SEMA, the aftermarket industry generates $29 billion annually, with about $5 billion coming from performance parts and accessories.

    Following are the most recent additions to the Mopar Performance Parts lineup (all information provided by Chrysler):

    Mopar Performance 5.7-liter HEMI Crate Engine
    Offered in multi-port injection (MPI) and carbureted versions, the Mopar 5.7-liter HEMI crate engine represents the marriage of modern technology to classic Mopar muscle - everything from classic 1960s- and 1970s-era Chrysler muscle cars to late-model Dodge trucks.

    Initial construction of the Mopar Performance 5.7-liter HEMI crate engine - which features a cast iron cross-bolted cylinder block with aluminum HEMI twin-plug cylinder heads - takes place at the Saltillo (Mexico) Engine Plant. It is then modified to include an integrated "plug and play" engine controller for easy installation into most vehicles.

    The Mopar Performance 5.7-liter HEMI crate engine produces 360 horsepower at 5700 rpm and 360 lb.-ft. of torque at 4500 rpm.

    Mopar Performance 540 Aluminum HEMI Crate Engine
    For muscle car enthusiasts seeking the biggest and most power available in a crate engine, Mopar delivers the new 540 cubic-inch aluminum HEMI crate engine.

    Available carbureted, blown or show-polished, the 540 cubic-inch aluminum crate engine delivers 650 to more than 900 horsepower, depending on engine configuration.

    Mopar Performance 528/472/426 HEMI Crate Engines
    First brought to market in 1991, Mopar introduces all-new versions of the classic 426 HEMI, now producing 465 horsepower and 486 lb.-ft. of torque; the 472 HEMI, with 525 horsepower and 540 lb.-ft. of torque; and the massive 528 HEMI, boasting 610 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque.

    Each of these Mopar HEMI crate engines include all-new components built to original specifications, and are delivered completely assembled, from the intake manifold to the oil pan.

    Mopar DUB Edition Performance Parts and Accessories
    Mopar is introducing a new line of Mopar DUB Edition parts and accessories at the 2004 SEMA show. Mopar and DUB have partnered on a number of special edition parts for the Chrysler 300 and Dodge Magnum.

    Included in the Mopar DUB Edition parts and accessories are floor mats, a chrome package, sill plates, lowering springs, a three-inch performance exhaust and a special-edition Jacob & Co. diamond-studded clock for the Chrysler 300C.

    It seems the aftermarket is slowly getting away from mostly bolt on parts to more significant modifications within the engine internally, or complete engines themselves. Bolt ons are great for some extra performance without breaking the bank. But there seems to be a change from the guys and gals who know nothing about cars but talk like crazy about their 'extensive' list of bolt ons (don't get me wrong, I'm in no way shape or form bashing people who have large list of bolt ons, just the people who don't really know what those mods do and had someone else put them on for them. There are a lot of people out there like that) to more thought out and planned modifications.

    If I only had the money to play with the big toys.... One day, one day...

    Aren't they producing not enough hemi's as it is? So they want to add to the backlog by producing crate engines to sell too?

    Wonder if the 5.6L Hemi will have a carb intake made available for it...make a nice motor to drop in an Dodge/plymouth old muscle car.....
