Sonny's Racing/Bear's Performance Release 811 cid Mountain Motor Mopar

When the legendary Hemi engine was making waves back in the 1960's it was called the "elephant engine" because of its sheer size and power. Today, the elephant has gone to the mountain as seen with the announcement of this mammoth new 811 cubic inch Chrysler Hemi engine.

With a 5.000 bore center, 12.000 inch deck height and 811 cubic inches of displacement, this engine is significantly larger - and more powerful - than the 426 Hemi which represented the high water mark of the engine series. Not only is this engine nearly 50% larger, itís also much more powerful as seen by its 1,700 hp as compared the smaller Hemi's original 425 hp factory rating.

Bear's Performance of Ontario, Canada provided the raw head casting which was prepped & assembled by Sonny's Racing Engines & Components. The latter finished the project by utilizing these heads with their tried and true mountain motor engine combination.

The engine is legal for use in categories such as IHRA Pro Stock, which is an outgrowth of the original factory hot rods from the golden age of drag racing. In this particular case, this 811 Hemi was assembled for a specific customer who will run it in Top Sportsman throughout the country in 2008.
