Dodge will sell the Challenger SRT Demon 170's supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 as crate engines through Direct Connection.
Called the Hellephant C170, the fully assembled engine costs $27,695 and will be available early next year.
The 2023 Challenger Demon 170 was ethanol-fueled street-legal dragster with up to 1025 horsepower and priced at $100K.
We waved goodbye to Dodge's outrageous Hellcat-powered muscle cars last year, with the 2023 Challenger SRT Demon 170 representing the ultimate expression of their incredible power figures. With a tank full of E85 gasoline, the street-legal dragster's supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 generated an otherworldly 1025 horsepower and pound-feet of torque. That same engine will seen be available through Direct Connection, the home of Dodge's factory-backed performance parts, as the Hellephant C170.
Demon 170 Crate Engine
While the Challenger Demon 170 had a starting price just over $100,000, with U.S. production limited 3000 units, the fully assembled crate engine costs about a quarter of that. Priced at $27,695, Dodge says the C170 Long Block comes with the 3.0-liter supercharger and improved intercooler. Along with a larger snout and bigger pulley for boosted boost, there's a 105mm throttle body with a new housing, blade, shaft, and geartrain.
A version of the C170 without the supercharger and other bits mentioned will be available for $18,995. They will go on sale sometime in the early part of next year, and they will be joined by several other long-block crate engines. Among them are the Hellcat and Hellcat Redeye engines, good for 717 and 807 horses, respectively.
