Callies Performance Products, together with sister company Energy Manufacturing Ltd., has announced a unique licensing deal with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles to manufacture and distribute Gen II 426 Hemi and 440 Wedge cast iron blocks and cylinder heads (both cast iron and cast aluminum). Per the agreement, Energy will manufacture the blocks and cylinder heads, and Callies will manufacture the rotating assembly components to support them, creating a one-stop-shop for Hemi and Wedge engine builds.
“The marketplace hasn’t had real access to this product in over a decade,” says Heath Norton, Vice President of both Callies and Energy. “Now customers will be able to get the blocks consistently through the Callies dealer network with Mopar 426 Hemi and 440 Wedge part numbers for their engine builds.”
The manufactured parts will be made from original Mopar molds, cores, and engineering data, and will carry authentic Mopar part numbers. Callies will be releasing more details about the blocks and cylinder heads in the near future. Orders are expected to begin shipping in the third quarter of 2020.
