The new Hellcrate motor is becoming very popular and being retro fitted into all kinds of Mopars. Where else can you get 707-horsepower and a 2 year/24,000 mile warranty? Although the motor is compact for including a supercharger and can fit under flat hood cars, there is still one major clearance issue, the rear water crossovers on the supercharger. Reilly Motorsports has come to the rescue and have designed a low profile replacement to make the swap easier.
Reilly Motorsports is no stranger to swapping Gen III HEMIs into A, B and E-bodies as their AlterKtion has made the swap even easier. With the release of the Hellcrate not much is different but did run into an issue on A and B-bodies: the water crossovers. These are necessary to keep the supercharger cool, but the hit the firewall on both A and B-body cars. If you are still in the build process you can notch the fire wall but if your car is already painted there are no options until now.
Reilly Motorsports designed a low profile water crossover to bolt on to the rear of the supercharger. Machined from billet aluminum, the new Hellcat Low Profile Water Crossover shaves 1.5” off of the back of the supercharger. This clearance will allow the Hellcat motor fit into a B or A-body without modifying the firewall.
The shelves at Reilly Motorsports are stocked with Hellcat Low Profile Water Crossovers ready to ship. If you are looking to swap a Hellcat motor into anything a little extra clearance is never bad, not to mention it looks better than stock. Save yourself a headache and call Bill to order your’s today.
