Dodge says it will also sell a Hellcat engine kit it calls the Hellcrate. This kit is designed for older cars built before 1976, allowing you to more easily add Hellcat power to your classic vehicle.

The Hellcrate includes a powertrain control module, power distribution center, engine wiring harness, chassis harness, accelerator pedal, ground jumper, oxygen sensors, charge air temperature sensors, and fuel pump control module. The PCM comes with factory settings, giving the engine 707 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque, but since it's unlocked, tuners will be able to change that if they want. You can also order a Front End Accessory Drive kit that includes an alternator, power steering pump, belts, pulleys, and a few other things to make your engine swap go more smoothly.
The Hellcat engine will cost a whopping $19,530, and the kit will run you another $2,195. Thankfully, Dodge at least offers a three-year, unlimited-mileage warranty if you buy the two together. So if your build blows up after a few months, replacing it won't cost you another $21,725.
