DSR Performance launches 1150 horsepower pump gas crate engine

This afternoon DSR Performance, the aftermarket performance division of Don Schumacher Racing, launched their brand new crate engine, the DSR 1150. The 1150 is an earth shattering 1150 horsepower crate engine based on the current generation (GEN III) HEMI. This game changing crate engine has unparalleled performance levels and is designed to run on 93 octane unleaded fuel.

Engineered using technology and data developed from the championship winning DSR Challenger Drag Pak program that has competed and won in the ultra competitive NHRA Constant Aviation Factory Stock Showdown Series and the NMCA Holley EFI Factory Super Cars Class, the DSR 1150 pays homage to the infamous Chrysler HEMI engine that ruled the streets and the strips in the 1960’s and early 1970’s. The 426 cubic inch (7.0 liter) DSR 1150 is the highest horsepower pump gas OE production based crate engine sold on the market today. With a retail price of $37,950, it is sold direct through and exclusive dealers.

Chad Osier, President of DSR Performance, had this to say about the new DSR 1150, “The performance aftermarket is a natural expansion for our brand and motorsports technology. The DSR 1150 is a pure All-American crate engine that gives racers, enthusiasts and car builders a new level of performance. We’ve meticulously engineered the DSR 1150 to deliver industry leading horsepower and durability, all in a plug and play platform. This is just the beginning for DSR Performance and customers can look forward to more exciting products this Fall.”

A brainchild of DSR Performance and AJ Berge, co-crew chief of the DSR Drag Paks and owner of HEMI Tuner Performance, they set out to create a GEN III HEMI based crate engine that’s durable and can be used for multiple applications. The DSR 1150 was designed for enthusiasts, weekend drag racers and custom car builders looking to take their Restomod projects to the next level. The DSR 1150 has superb driving manners while producing mind blowing performance.

“The DSR 1150 Crate Engine is a game changer and will shake up the Mopar community,” AJ Berge said. “The technology that’s made us successful both on and off the track has gone into creating the DSR 1150 Crate Engine. We feel we’ve developed a great package that combines record setting horsepower level, extreme durability and great drivability.”
