Home of the 6.1L & 6.4L HEMI Turnkey Pallet
Cleveland Power and Performance is the home of the 6.1L & 6.4L HEMI Turnkey Pallet. Our 6.1L & 6.4L HEMI packages are sold setup on a pallet and ready to run once you receive it! Just and fluids, fuel, and fire it up! We offer these turnkey pallets as an alternative to crate packages or basic engine and transmission dropouts, providing ease of use as well as ultimately saving customers thousands of dollars.
When pulled from a donor vehicle, these late model 6.1L and 6.4L HEMI engine packages require communication with a number of VIN matched modules in order to run properly. Depending on the year, make, model and options on the vehicle that the driveline was removed from will determine the models needed to get your package running properly in your custom car or hot rod.
Here are some examples of what we include with our HEMI dropouts.
Of course, all of these parts are all wired up together, on the pallet, when we sell our ready to run dropouts.
A large number of essential communication components in late model LX based cars are VIN matched and can only be properly programmed or diagnosed using the appropriate hardware/software. Unlike most, if not all, high performance other salvage yards, we have the ability to program, scan, and troubleshoot late model Dodge/Chrysler computers. This gives us the opportunity to ensure that every turnkey package that we sell is properly programmed and can be used in a custom application. For far to long, and even to this day in some circles, there was a major misconception regarding the ability to use these packages outside of the vehicles that the came in. There was special emphasis on the inability to use the NAG1 transmission that Chrysler used behind their HEMI’s for years. With outside of the box (almost literally in this sense) thinking, we here at Cleveland Power and Performance have essentially dispelled those rumors. By offering several dozen 6.1L and 6.4L auto and manual turnkey dropouts over the last several years, and by seeing them used in many unique applications, we have shown that these packages can indeed be used in just about whatever you can dream up!
We move fast when we drop a HEMI! We pull everything neatly and carefully, but we move fast!
With all of this being said, we urge buyers to make sure they get exactly what they need when purchasing a HEMI to used in their old Mopar or custom car. All to often we get calls from customers shopping else where, either buying used or crate motors, looking for parts to get their HEMI running or advice on what to do. We are always willing to provide advice, however due to the fact that we sell our engines as turnkey packages we very rarely have the parts available that the need to run their motor. We have always and will continue to go the extra mile to make sure that every single dropout that we sell is exactly what the customer needs.
One of our 6.1L Turnkey setups was featured on the hit TV show Chop Cut Rebuild and was ultimately dropped in a 1970 Barracuda!
Check out this page showing the 6.1L Barracuda, dubbed “The Anchor”, getting a full wrap right on the SEMA floor!
The same vehicle was also featured Hot Rod Network’s website here.
We have sold a number of these turnkey pallets overs the years, and we have seen them find great homes. We have seen them put into some very unique and downright awesome project cars. Some of our turnkey HEMI’s are now in their new homes under the hoods of Dusters, Imperials, V6 LX Cars, Barracudas, Pickup trucks, Coronets, and much more. Much like children, we provide a loving and caring environment for these packages until they are ready for their new home. Sometimes we are sad to see them go, but their stop here is only temporary as they are ultimately destined for greater things… like running a quarter mile on a balmy Saturday morning on an Arizona drag strip, or doing a smokey burnout on a lonely road overlooking a pacific sunset in northern California, or even taking the kids out on the last nice autumn day for a Sunday drive in foothills of the Pocono’s. Lets take a look at at some of the HEMI turnkeys past….
We would be happy to be the supplier of the HEMI package in you Mopar build! If you are looking for a specific package, please let us know as we will do what we can to find one for you.
If you have any questions regarding one our our turnkey setups, or any other packages that we have, please call us at 866-236-5031 to discuss.
Brembo or BremNO????
What are Brembo calipers? What do they do? Will it make my car stop faster? Those are common questions that come to mind when customers ask me about Brembo calipers.
Common cars that carry the Brembo brake upgrade are SRT-8 300’s, Challengers, Chargers, and Magnums. These are the most powerful V8 vehicles that the Chrysler Group has came out with. These cars are so powerful that they require a brake system of commensurate capability as standard equipment. Design imperatives were excellent braking performance under every conceivable operating condition – from high speeds to track day, communicative pedal feel enabling precise modulation and control, and superior heat dissipation to keep brake efficiency optimized and sustainable, especially under extreme usage.
The basic models would be SE or SXT, which have a 3.6L V6 engine with 250-305 horsepower have the 4 wheel Anti Lock Disc Brakes. The RT models have 5.7L V8 Hemi engine with 375 horsepower and have the Heavy Duty High Performance Brakes.The SRT-8 models have 6.1L or 6.4L engine with horsepower ranging from 425-470. These come with the Brembo Performance Brakes.
A lot of people who own the SXT or the RT models will generally upgrade their brake system to the Brembo Performance simply because they custom built there engine to have more horsepower and they need the support. Most of the time they will upgrade because they simply look a lot better. If you are looking into upgrading your SXT base model or RT model, you cannot just plug and play with Brembo Performance Brakes.
To upgrade your brakes on the base SXT model and RT,you will need at least a 20″ wheel for clearance, hubs, spindles, knuckles, and rotors.
The rotors are different from RT and SRT-8, RT rotors measure out to approximately 13.6 diameter and 1.15 thick. The SRT rotors measure out to approximately 14.20 and 1.26 thick.
Here are some photos of how much different each caliper is:

Follow this blog to see this 2006 Dodge Magnum SRT-8 Clean Title getting overhauled!
We had the opportunity to purchase this 2006 Dodge Magnum SRT-8 with a clean title from a repo auction. This Magnum arrived to us with a blown motor, but it will be getting overhauled and put up for sale. Follow this blog to see the build from start to finish, and eventually see this clean title Magnum finished and offered for sale. The dodge Magnum has proven to be one of the rarest and most coveted of the SRT brand. These vehicles seem to have developed a cult following since the end of production nearly 10 years ago. We have had the opportunity to offer a few of these Magnums for sale, but this maybe the nicest and cleanest example to date.
Here are some photos showing the magnum as we received it. As you can see, it has was not involved in a collision, fire, flood, or any total loss. It arrived to us with a blown engine.
The exterior, interior, and all electronic functions are in good shape and fully functional. However, it the engine did not run, so we removed it for inspection. We will be carefully looking over and inspecting all of the drive line, suspension, and power functions of this Magnum and we will repair whatever needs fixed.
The engine was removed and sent to our engine room for inspection. We also had the transmission gone through and inspected to insure that it had no issues.
Please stay tuned to this blog to follow the engine overhaul and completion of this Dodge Magnum SRT-8 clean title rebuild. Once this vehicle is done being rebuilt, and we have put a good amount of test miles on it, she will be offered for sale. Please feel free to give us a call at 866-236-5031 with any questions or to discuss pricing on this awesome 425hp wagon!
