    I purchased a 95' RT/10 that came with no owners manual. Would anyone happen to have a PDF version they could share? I would also be interested in a service manual if someone has one.

    Saw one on Ebay yesterday. There are reproduction owners manuals out there also. The only difference is that the cover doesn't fold out.

    Thank you much. Finally a book I'm interested in reading. Not sure why this was so hard to find. It would be nice if there could be a section on the forum dedicated to PDF manuals.

    More than a PDF file thread we need a "cross-referenced parts" page to show what parts from other vehicles can be used, and also a "cheaper alternatives" thread

    I made a window sticker for my 98GTS if anyone wants it as well. You can change it up, and all the specs can be gotten from Dodge, they emailed me all my info. I have it posted on the Viper club facebook group, but I no longer have facebook so if you are interested just take a peak there in the files sections

    There was also a thread that had all the parts manuals. You can kind of cross reference with that by just searching the Dodge part number, though it doesn't always tell the full story. I know Roe Racing has all the parts diagrams on their site as well.

    The "cheaper alternatives" is the tricky part. One good example is the lifters in the engine. The Viper ones are quite expensive and only really cross reference to the Viper, but by all measurements and use tables the LA series Magnum engines appear to be the same thing and will fit. I think the bigger issue there probably has to do with quality and precision. They might all be "the same" from an engineering technical drawing standpoint (as in they all have common dimensions), but the different part numbers could denote different approved vendors that can meet the necessary quality requirements for the different engines or maybe they have different heat treatments or surface finishes or something like that. You can roll the dice and try whatever you want though. If you are going aftermarket then it might be less issue anyway. Crower for instance makes an aftermarket lifter for the Viper. The main difference in their part numbers just has to do with how many come in a kit (ie. enough for 8 cylinders vs enough for 10). The base part number is the same, just a quantity difference.
