    Thanks for the feedback. Did you find a big difference in how loud it is? And, did you go for the 2.5 or 3"?

    Aftermarket exhaust question

    Did you have to do anything to the car when you added the headers and cats? I just ordered the Belanger system and I believe it should just bolt on however I have also heard people say it would need a tune as well. Did yours just bolt on or did it get anything else done as well? Also, did you...

    Aftermarket exhaust question

    Thanks for the info. Now that it has gotten a little warmer I'm finding myself much more interested in cooling down the exhaust.

    Aftermarket exhaust question

    I'm looking for some feedback about exhaust options. I'm pretty happy with the exhaust sound on my 2005. It has a nice rumble and burbles and pops when decelerating. what I would like is a cooler temperature in the car. If the car sounds a bit louder that's a bonus. From experience, have...

    New owner looking for tires

    I am very happy to say that I have just joined the ranks and picked up a 2005 Viper with only 5,000kms (I'm in Canada, that's only 3,100 miles). The car is in great shape, but the tires are original so I need to change them. I have tried my tire suppliers that I use for my business with no...

    Help finding article

    I was wondering if anyone could help me find a link to an article about torque vs. horsepower? I came across it on this board quite a while ago and have since lost it on my computer. As I recall, there was a link to a discussion about torque using corvette (sorry, not viper) engines. If...

    What rear-end ratio to use?

    From Jon B: "When we sell aluminum flywheels, we WARN you that you will lose 0-30 mph speed, but increase 20-120mph acceleration. We also suggest a 3.55 to re-gain this. A great choice." Why is it that with the aluminum flywheels that your 0-30 will suffer? If the engine can spin quicker, why...

    Color vote 2001

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but if your viper is in D status, you most likely can't change the color at this point. Whatever was originally ordered is going to be what you get. But look at it this way: whatever color you get, you'll have the best looking and performing car on the road.

    Pressure Washer?

    For best results when washing your cars, do pressure washers work better than just a nozzle on a garden hose? Also, does anybody know what the maximum safe pressure is for paint? I wouldn't want to use a pressure washer and spray the paint off.
