In order to fit a Hellcat crate motor in a A-body - is a hood cut-out required to allow room for the blower?

That's the way it looks based on the gas monkey dart & roadkill charger

We have a 71 Duster equipped with frame connectors and a Dana 60 rear needing an engine, and we are looking at the Hellcat crate motor as a possibility. We aren't afraid to go with an aftermarket front end either, but it has a really nice dual scoop hood all painted in the Twister style - hate to hack that up

There was a hellcat superbird at sema and they had to lower the engine so it would fit under the stock hood. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5UElCCobzWc

Not a Hellcat but a 6.1 with a Kenne Bell. Looks like he used a tubular K frame. It fits under a flat hood.

They used a modified magnum force front end. I called them to see if they are making them this way or it needs to be totally redesigned. No call back as of yet?

The HDK Suspension front end allows a Gen II Hemi under an A-body flat hood with 2x4 carbs. He has done Gen III as well, give Denny a call.

I have my 605 Hemi with a big single plane intake and a 1250 Dominator under a shaker hood on my Cuda.....

I would think that a SS hemi hood scoop hood would give the hellcat motor clearance in an A body, like a dart or cuda. Yes? No?

I have personal experience in fitting a 68 B body. With the stock K frame, a scoop was needed for sure.

I would imagine that an A body would be even worse. Expect to ship the K frame and also allow for the scoop. It is a very tall intake system.

Is there any roots style supercharger that would fit without lowering the K-member or cutting the hood? I want to keep the GTS hood on my Dart, and would like to have a supercharged gen 3 under there. I've looked at the Hellcat, magnuson, Kenne Bell, E-force, but have no idea what will fit.

Man I saw a Gen 3 in an a body on facebook and boy was it tight side to side. Headers must be a nightmare.

They're tight, but they clear everything. Unlike my Hedman headers and Milodon oil pan on my small block.

You may be out of luck, have you considered a pro charger?

I was really impressed with install they did on one of the show's on Spike TV a few weeks back with the P1SC. I already have an Alterkation front end if that makes a difference. I just don't know if that's the route I want to take.

By the looks of the Hellcat setup (which is tall), a KB/Whipple/Magnuson setup might be lower
