    End of an Era

    You left one heck of a legacy, ****. Thanks for your contributions! Bob: sound does not accelerate. It could change velocity depending on the medium disturbed... :)

    2016 Viper ACR a go

    Horsepower -- whatever. It makes good power. Now get serious about folks who want to take the car to the track AND drive it hard. That's what the ACR should be about. Let's leave the K car technology behind and put DRY SUMP in this car already. Before. Doing. Anything. Else. Then focus...

    Gen 2 to Gen 4 Engine Modification

    I hate to be one to **** here, but have you put some serious thought into cooling an extra 150HP? The stock water passages cast into the cover are anemic at best. If you plan to track and are making over 550 crank HP, it will become an issue for you. Maybe you're able to use a Gen 3 or 4...

    What did you drive before a Viper?

    Let's see... Corvette #1 - not exciting enough. Corvette #2 - not exciting enough. Corvette #3 - Enjoyed it but it put me to sleep...and in turn, I put it in the weeds...on its roof :) Corvette #4 - VERY easy to drive fast and boy did I eat tires. I was rotating every 1,000 and didn't get more...

    Downshift to brake?

    Men who use the engine and downshifting gears to slow a car down, ugh. Total poser drivers. They just think it sounds cool, but it lets the rest of us know that you can't drive a manual properly.

    Best looking wheels on Gen I or II ??? Pics please..

    Wheels from 2010 SRT Viper. Biggest plus: Best tire compounds available in these sizes!

    Grinding/vibrating sort of sound/feel while driving slow?

    Check the rear e-brake cables. It's possible they were tied back and the tie snapped and now the metal cable shield is rubbing the inside of your wheel. Good luck figuring out your issue!

    I agree with this -- the total area under the dyno curve is likely to be more on a NA car with the same WHP. Also, heat soak is less of a problem with NA cars. Two other things I want to mention (that I haven't already) is: 1. Don't forget you need to have your crank snout pinned if you go...

    Chrysler VS Dodge Viper gen 2

    You have a very rare car indeed! It's very likely the power rating of 383 is Metric HP. The math is: 735.5/745.7 * HP rating. For a 1999 Viper, that would be 443. I'm not sure where the 383 comes from and honestly I've never heard that figure used for a Viper engine. Jon B at PartsRack has...

    Fuel Pump

    A good question to ask is always what year is your car and do you plan any HP upgrades. For gen 1, replace with a Walbro 255 so you can support additional HP later. It's not an easy job to tackle and best left to an experienced Viper shop. For Gen 2s the answer is usually replace with stock.

    Hey BlackOut - Viper Specialties is another excellent shop. You can't go wrong. Now, since I've been through this myself, let me tell you that just buying the kit is no way to run 10PSI. I'm running 8PSI and on days where the ambient was over about 88 degrees I could NOT keep the car cool...
