    2010 Viper ACR. Pruchased new March 21 2012 with 40km.
    Today the car has 17000km
    Have always had noisey top end, my coupe same year had similar but not as loud.
    Lately noticed output seams less than it did with 2000km.
    Noticed the drivers side pipe has oily carbon residue and passenger side doesnt - always stays clean.
    The car is tracked monthly for a lapping day or two since new.
    Brought it to the dealer
    They found a spark plug on drivers side that had a cracked upper porcelen, question pcv and changed it. As far as plug condition they all look the same and they say there is no inication of something going wrong.

    I know this car intimately after driving it 17000km in a short period of time, so my seat of the pants i feel has some validity of a potential problem brewing.

    Ive been told to drive it and see if any thing else happens or gets worse.

    Well that doesnt sit well with me, its not a K-car engine we are dealing with, and I hate for something to go wrong at 270kmph down the straightaway of my favorite track.

    Can anyone at SRT give me some direction or insite as to direction

    You may want to post this in "The Grail Trail" as well. I think Herb checks in a bit more offer then the SRT engineers.
