    Hello all,

    After 3 corvettes ('02 Z06, Mallett Hammer '02 Z06, '08 Z06), I finally made my way up to a Viper.
    It's a 2006 coupe with a Paxton blower, Niche wheels, Corsa exhaust, KW coilovers, and a nice sound system.
    I just need to do something about this cabin heat! I think Roe HFCs will help, how about that Koolmat system? I sweat way too much, lol.

    Look forward to learning more and being in the community!

    Eric :beer:

    Welcome to the forum! Viper looks great! Any mod plans besides what's on it already?

    Thank you! I'm looking into doing HFC's and (possibly) headers. I like the Roe HFCs from what I've read. Just want to eliminate heat! And sound cool. :)
    Was also looking into doing an APR front splitter and maybe some carbon canards up front like the ACR. Would love to do a fat rear diffuser with more fins too....and a Gen IV hood (which seem to be hard to find).

    That's what I've heard vs the Gen IV! Couldn't be happier :)

    Thank you sir!

    Thank you very much!

    i went with cat deletes and my car was day and night with cabin heat issues... i assume high flow cats would be almost the same..

    Double check to be sure you aren't just running the factory H-pipe exhaust. I have cat back Corsas, the car cooled down significantly after they were installed and the H-pipe was removed.

    Yes, I think HFCs are next in line. It's ridiculously hot inside!

    I have the cat-back Corsa as well. I think it's the cats that are jamming up with so much heat (probably since SC too)

    Thanks man!

    Sometimes we just got to live with the cabin heat but don't forget your driving one of the best looking cars on the road !!!!
