Temecula, California-based EngineLabs, a resource for high-performanceEL engine technology, has announced its 2023 Engine Build Giveaway, which will include a special SEMA Show feature event leading up to the PRI Show, December 7-9, in downtown Indianapolis. 

The giveaway engine is a Whipple supercharged 426ci Gen III Hemi, slated to make 1,200 hp. The engine will be built in real-time at the PRI Show by renowned builders Late Model Engines with support from presenting sponsor Summit Racing Equipment. 

"We are extremely excited to be working with Late Model Engines and Summit Racing once again to build an engine on the PRI Show floor," said Greg Acosta, editor of EngineLabs. "While we're sticking with our friends (LME) for the build, we're shaking things up this year by building a Gen-III Hemi with a Whipple twin-screw supercharger. That's three totally different engine combinations with three totally different power adders in three years, for anyone keeping score."
