    Gentlemen,

    This is my first post in the forum and i must say how glad i joined. My first viper is a 2006 Viper club of america Car No 3 out of 50. It had a Paxton supercharger installed on it as well as few engine mods such as ported heads, AEM and cam. I didn't like the idea of owning a supercharged V10. Don't ask why :p
    replaced the engine with a stock one. I wanna thank DC performance for the help and the support as i am in middle east and Dan was able to ship the parts i need in a very short time frame. Here are few pics. Thank you :)

    Looks nice, congrats on your purchase!

    Did I read your note correctly, you went from a supercharged engine to a stock engine? Were there problems with the original engine?

    Agreed.

    Can't believe you yanked the Paxton-blown H/C setup, but to each their own. Beautiful ride. Welcome!

    Thank u, yes i blown the engine. i wanted to rebuilt it but the supercharger was damaged too. And the most important reason is that in here it gets really hot in summer and i didn't wanna risk the engine again.

    Keeping the engine stock makes for a very reliable Viper.

    Just curious, but what does gas cost per liter in Bahrain? Thank you.

    Very nice looking ride, and I hope you enjoy it well over there!!

    And I'm with you on the engine swap. Heat can be pretty bad for a blown engine.

    Enjoy it!!!:headbang:
