Mopar Engines

Mopar cars are notorious for their high horsepower engines. Mopar engines were, and still are very desirable for speed and performance. One of the most desirable mopar engines is the 426 Hemi Engine. This hemi engine produced 425 horsepower at 5000 rpm and 490 foot-pounds of torque at 4000 rpm. Other popular Mopar engines include: the powerful 440 cid, the 383 cid, the small block 340 cid, and the durable 318 cid engines.

426 Mopar Engine

Mopars were in their prime in the 1960’s and 1970’s. In 1972, though, stricter emission laws were put into effect and Mopar engines had to be detuned and thus greatly reduced the amount of horsepower the engines put out. In 1974, though these stricter emissions led to the downfall of most muscle cars.

Recently though there has been trend to the rebirthing of the muscle car craze and we are once again seeing new high horsepower engines being built. Take for example the Charger, or the new Dodge Challenger that is coming out. They have a 6.1L hemi that is being dropped into them and are producing, like the 426 hemi engine, 425 horsepower.

Well now that we have had a little overview/history of the Mopar engines let’s take a close look at each engine individually.

Here are some of the engines that we are planning on writing articles about. If you have any interesting stories / tips / rebuilding tips, please email them to us using this by contacting us here.

    I’m restoring a 66 Charger and I wanted to check the engine serial number. I checked your decoder and found that 2468130 is a 383. My question has to do with the suffix on the number -7, does anyone know whet this designation means? Tx in advance for your help, Sam
