A supercharged HEMI will be built by Late Model Engines and is slated to make 1,200 horsepower.

Temecula, CA EngineLabs, is excited to announce its 2023 Engine Build Giveaway, leading up to the PRI Show this December. 

The giveaway engine is a Whipple supercharged 426 cubic-inch Gen III HEMI, slated to make 1,200 horsepower. It will be built in real-time at the PRI Show by renowned engine builders, Late Model Engines, with support from presenting sponsor, Summit Racing Equipment.

“We are extremely excited to be working with Late Model Engines and Summit Racing once again, to build an engine on the PRI Show floor,” said Greg Acosta, Editor of EngineLabs. “While we’re sticking with our friends (LME) for the build, we’re shaking things up this year by building a Gen-III HEMI with a Whipple twin-screw supercharger. That’s three totally different engine combinations with three totally different power adders, in three years, for anyone keeping score.”

Once live, entries for the giveaway will be accepted online at enginelabsgiveaway.com, with special features at both the SEMA Show and PRI Show. Each initial entry received at the trade shows will earn participants $5 Summit Bucks for use online at SummitRacing.com.

 “Summit Racing Equipment is pleased to once again partner with Power Automedia in this engine giveaway. The iconic HEMI is the perfect powerplant for this big horsepower build and we look forward to watching it all come together live at PRI,” explained Al Noe, Summit Racing Equipment Chief Marketing Officer. “Summit Racing Equipment carries a full range of parts and accessories for the Gen 3 HEMI, which includes our Summit Racing™ Pro HEMI performance parts. We look forward to meeting the winner and being a trusted source for parts, installation tools, and anything else needed to maintain the engine for years to come.”

The winner will be announced in April 2024. To stay up to date with the giveaway, follow along at EngineLabs.com and the Power + Performance YouTube channel for content on the build, dyno test, and giveaway.
