Mopar Power: Callies Offers A Full Line Of Mopar Engine Parts

Brand loyalty is a common theme in the high-performance vehicle world, and some of the biggest brand fanatics are those who have pledged their allegiance to Mopar products. The parts market used to be limited for Mopar enthusiasts, but thanks to companies like Callies Performance Products, that has changed. Callies offers a full line of engine components for just about any Mopar-based combination you can dream up.

If you plan on building a house for lots of horsepower to live in, you need to make sure the foundation is strong and the best place to start is with a quality engine block. Callies entered a licensing agreement that allowed it to produce older Mopar blocks and create new late model products for Mopar fans.

Heath Norton from Callies explains exactly what the company is bringing to the table with these blocks.

“The Gen II Hemi and Wedge blocks we are selling is the Mega Race Block that Mopar used to sell. We are utilizing their casting tooling and engineering data. It’s a Mopar block, produced by Energy Manufacturing and sold by Callies Performance. We did this because there was a big hole in the market that needed to be filled, and we feel it is important to keep these engine options alive for the consumer.”

Engine builders will be pleased by the level of detail that Callies has put into these engine blocks. Callies made a substantial investment in the tooling for the blocks to ensure the machine work would be top-notch. The effort that Callies has put into the machine work of the blocks reduces the amount of time engine builders have to spend prepping the blocks for assembly.

These blocks aren’t just a single option product, Callies offers several different features that racers can take advantage of based on their application.

“In the Hemi block, we have three options: a 4.250- or 4.500-inch bore cylinder, and a 4.250-inch bore size without lifters bored. For the Wedge, we offer 4.310- and 4.500-inch cylinder bores. All of the cylinders are rough-bored and ready for engine builders to hone and piston-fit for best available performance. Callies is able to supply the block with rotating assemblies in multiple price points and performance levels to customize packages for our customers,” Norton explains.

If you plan on investing in a good engine block it wouldn’t make any sense to fill it with parts that aren’t going to perform at a high level. Callies is a one-stop-shop when it comes to Mopar performance, thanks to the rotating assembly parts it offers. The company has been making rotating assembly parts for a long time, so it understands what its customers need.

Jarrett Lorenzen talks about what rotating assembly parts you can get from Callies for Mopar applications.

“Starting with our connecting rods, we have both H- and I-beam styles available, which we recommend for different applications. These designs have been improved over the years to make some of the best steel rods on the market, no matter the platform. As for the crankshafts, a good bit of what we have learned and been successful within our Top Fuel endeavors has trickled its way down to our other product offerings. One thing that has stood out, in particular, is more material being left on the pin arms to increase stability under high loads.”

If you want to build Mopar-based engine that’s going to see boost Callies can help make that happen. The Magnum Billet crank is designed for the person who wants to make a lot of boosted horsepower but doesn’t want to sacrifice any crankshaft strength. If you need something a little more budget-friendly, the Compstar crankshaft will work for mild levels of boost for street-driven builds.

Not interested in adding boost to your engine program? Callies has naturally-aspirated options for the Mopar crowd, too.

“All of our connecting rods ship with premium hardware; Compstars with L19 bolts, and Ultra with our ARP Ultra bolt. These bolts can take plenty of RPM and have the ability to last through several refreshes. Lightweight isn’t our specialty — long-lasting parts that you can rely on is what we specialize in, so unfortunately, no lightweight options are available for this platform,” Lorenzen says.
