HEMI Engine Packages

FHO 528/540 Street Hemi Package

We highly recommend the 572 Hemi for most street and bracket race applications. For customers requiring a smaller cubic inch package, we have a super high quality list of components. Most parts are identical to our larger 572’s, with the exception of crankshafts/pistons.

The 540 package features longer connecting rods than the 528, providing improved rod ratio and lighter components.

Just like our 572 Hemi, engines can be detailed to appear OEM stock or given a more Pro-Street or race look.

The choice is yours.

“I bought my FHO Hemi from Tim in 2015. I can drive my 69 Road Runner anywhere, on pump gas, and then go to the track and click off 10.00@134mph quarter mile runs. It idles like a family car and makes well over 750 HP. I could not be more pleased with my FHO Hemi.”
