    Hi There,
    I have been looking for a reasonably priced 2008-2010 ACR Viper and haven't been lucky. Would anyone know a ballpark figure of converting a regular SRT-10 Coupe into an ACR Body Style.. Minus the paint job. What modifications make and ACR, and ACR..? I know the front chin and lip spoiler, the rear spoiler, black rims, brakes and paint scheme. Any other engine modification, or is that it?.. Thanks in advance.

    You will need...front splitter, dive planes, rear spoiler, sidewinder acr rims, and the adjustsble suspension. You might be hetter off getting an original acr. Putting all those parts together on your own might not be so cost effective. MSRP is just over $14k on all the aero stuff. VPA has it for a bit cheaper. Also...dependng if you want it to be a '10 acr clone you will need a short throw shifter and revised fifth and sixth gears in the tranny.

    Are you wanting an ACR for looks and the 'in your face' bling factor?.....
    or for the track?

    If it's just for looks, just put the 'aero kit' wing on the back and call it good.

    If it's for track use, buying the real thing will be cheaper. Suspension/brakes/wheels are the big difference aside from the aero stuff.
    The motor is the same.
    The hardcore ACR doesn't have A/C, radio, or carpet.

    I just love the ACR Paint Scheme, for the road.. not the track, I just love the way the ACR Looks. So damn Sexy. Thanks for the quick response, I did realize it would cost that much. There's like a 20K difference in ACR and non ACR. Now, I have a reason to stick to my ACR.

    Yeah,.....that's a 4000 dollar upgrade I still haven't done to my street car.

    I should be the one looking for an ACR. :rolleyes:

    .....I do have braided steel lines, track pads, ......and some lame slotted rotors though.
    :(

    What about the revised 5th and 6th gear as posted above. Sounds like a lot of work. I will just wait for an ACR to fly my way.

    2010 only and all 2010s had that. The ACR did not receive a special transmission.

    ACR emblems on either side. They are not cheap. Different trunk struts for the addition of the wing.

    Only 5th gear was revised for all Viper models in 2010. All transmissions for all models are the same otherwise from 2008-2010.

    If you upgraded to Hoosiers and Moton suspension you would end up with a better handling car then the ACR.

    A really stupid amount of money. But this is what you get. And if you build it right you get to run the One lap of America and end with a podium finish. The repaint was done by PREFIX, yes the company that paints all the new Gen V cars. The is affectionately known as an ACR XXX.

    As an alternate position as he wants the look of the ACR but not to track it.

    VIPIAR wing + Canards + front lip ~4K.
    Lowering springs ~500
    Black painted factory five spokes. ~500
    Badges surprisingly expensive. ~300
    Aftermarket drilled disks ~300

    Figure by a single color car and skip the driver stripe ACR look. Would not be my cup of tea but to almost anybody outside of the viper community it would look like a ACR.

    I have ~85K into my ACR look-a-like/performs better including the cost of the car new. At the time I bought my '09, a Gen4 ACR could not be had for less than 94K.

    It wasn't an all at once conversion. I took my time and shopped around for good deals. I started with the suspension and brakes, then added the aero (including the genuine 2010 wing), then the wheels.

    There are much better deals on genuine ACR's today but I've had 4 years of enjoyment already and I got the added pleasure of assembling it myself...the way I wanted.

    The other 'cost' component is resale. You can put the equivalent money into an SRT10 and get an ACR clone, but it won't get the money of a real ACR in resale, so there is a cost that you pay at the end of the day. Also, have you priced paint jobs lately? The ACR variants are well worth the extra money IMO, esp if you are going for looks and getting a rare black band/driver's stripe combo, which sets it apart from anything on the road or track. ;) Just my 2c.

    This makes a nice comparison with Keith's car (which he did a great job building and obviously did for his own satisfaction and budget considerations). It just looks a lot 'racier' with the band and stripes.
