Hi Guys,

I just want to share my experience with Todd and his crew at A & C Performance in Southern California. I live in Norcal about 7 hrs away from Todd's shop. I decided to have my 2006 Supercharged Roadster Viper shipped to him to fix some issues on my Viper and the low power output its making. I did try a shop here in Norcal to fix the issue but was unsuccessful. Before I had my Viper shipped to Todd, it was only making 520 rwhp/498 rwtq. I know I had issues with it, so I decided to have Todd work some magic on my Viper .... and so he DID!!! While my Viper was at Todd's shop I decided to ask him to add his Supercharger Cam to add a little more HP together with the Paxton Supercharger. I just got my Viper back last Friday but I was not able to test drive it right away coz it was a wet and rainy day. I was so excited and test drove her Sunday and it felt SOOO GOOD driving her! She felt like an Old Grandma car before and now she feels like A CRAZY WILD APE!!! TOTALLY NEW ANIMAL!!! Also, The exhaust sound with the CAM ... MUSIC TO MY EARS!!! Todd also told me that the during the dynotuning the Dyno had to be set at the lowest power setting, Todd had to De-Tune my Viper because of the POWER its making (kept on climbing up during dyno) and also due to my stock bottom end. Todd is the MAN!! and I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM! A & C Performance is the only shop that I will go to from now on ... and I Don't care if I'm about 7 hrs away!!!

NEW RWHP/TQ = 735/658 !!! (Note: STOCK BOTTOM END and on 3.55 GEARS which Todd mentioned that accounts to roughly 30 RWHP LESS!!!)

Here are my ADD-ON MODIFICATIONS on my 2006 Viper:

PAXTON NOVI 2000 SUPERCHARGER (on 7 lbs of boost)
A&C SUPERCHARGER CAMSHAFT
M&M LONG TUBE HEADERS
M&M STRAIGHT PIPES
CORSA EXHAUST
3.55 GEARS
NEW AFTER MARKET CLUTCH
A&C CUSTOM CATCH CAN

Here's the Video link and dynograph of my Viper with Todd's magic touch!!!

Nice #'s!!! Hopefully you have some drag radials on it :) I'm guessing your car might also have a smaller than stock paxton pulley on it as well? Maybe a 3.5" or even a 3.25" one? I think the stock pulley is 3.75".

I think a stock cam and stock exhaust (no cats though) Gen3, would probably need to be up near 10psi or so to reach those #'s, but with a nice cam and full exhaust like you have it probably would only show 7-8psi since it's moving the air more efficiently.

Thank you pumpgas :) ... I do still have the stock Paxton supercharger pulley. I think Todd's cam really matched with my full exhaust set up :)... I am actually in the market now of getting new tires. I do have 19" fronts and 20" wheels and currently have the Nitto Invos but they are about 10 years old and only have a life thread left :(. I am looking at getting the same tires since I drive my Viper only on the weekends :).

Jeff to get to wizard you have to leave nice and peaceful south jersey with nice roads and enter at your own risk the state of NY, where the roads are **** and drivers are hostile. its a jungle out there..:drive: easier said than done. but thank you for a suggestion. sometimes I look at my car and realize I like my money in the bank than in my viper.

***** I live in NJ:crazy2: Standing ovation to Todd
. I live in NJ too. Todd did a remote tune for me on my na gen 3. I used a dyno in north jersey. Excellent tuning job. They couldnt get a good reading from the exhaust so Todd had me send him videos of my tach and air fuel gauge in between pulls. 659rwhp with a remote tune and iphone videos! Todd knows his stuff!!!!

Awesome numbers!! Not only does Todd do great work, but he is a good a person as they come. Always goes way above what is expected or what he is compensated for.

Great job A&C!!
