We here at PLR denied the advantages of the Hemi for as long as we could, but the customers have spoken. Our 481X program is still alive, and works very well for cars with dimensional constraints under hood. For the racers who have an open engine compartment, it is hard to beat the original Elephant for raw power production!
The PLR Hemi is the newest edition to our alcohol turbo engine lineup. With its forged aluminum block and heads, billet crank, and top of the line parts throughout, the PLR Hemi is built in the spirit of the virtually bulletproof and very successful 481X. We have worked very hard to create a Hemi that doesn't have the typical valvetrain issues that have plagued this engine for decades, making this package more user friendly than our competition's. This engine has already proven itself in NHRA competition. Our Nhra Legal 520ci helped Troy Coughlin's C7 Pro Mod Corvette to secure the 2015 NHRA Pro Mod Championship! The Outlaw 548ci version is now being used in several cars including, the El General Racing Pro Extreme Corvette that ran 3.52@225mph at the PDRA Finals in 2015!
