    Default New Viper: 1997 GTS B/W

    1997 Viper GTS
    One owner
    Minty Fresh
    Borla Long tube
    Borla Cat Back
    Roe Engineering high flow cats
    Smooth tubes
    Tune
    Updated cooling fans
    Fully forged engine from Dodge
    Stack of all the maintenance from original owner
    Probably the most fun to drive car I've ever owned or driven

    Plans?
    Drive it till bored then twin turbo it.

    This is my first Viper and I love it. Such a fun car to have. I also have a 418ci forged LS3 C5 Corvette (580whp NA) and a 408ci forged WS6 Trans Am (550whp NA + 300hp snky snky).

    Congrats on the new car and welcome. Nothing beats a B/W.

    Very nice car with some nice mods, especially replacing the anemic exhaust.
    Welcome to the party!

    What is the next progression of bolt ons for me? Should I do rollers? Anything else to gain a little power out of her NA? I'll probably get a nice lightweight flywheel and a good clutch next because my hydraulics are leaking a bit.

    Your next progression is tires. Those tires are way out of date and need replaced.

    My CCW's came in Monday. Running a 345 rear 17"x13" and a 315 or 335 if it will fit front 18"x12".

    Expect awesome burn out video on old rubbers shortly hahaha.

    Also how is the exhaust system that I have? The header primaries look small, I'm guessing 1.5". Is there any better headers with say 1.75" or 2" primaries? Does anyone know off hand the size of the Borla exhaust? Would headers with 2" primaries and a true 3" dual exhaust free up more power? Thanks guys!

    Beautiful car. Hope you'll lose that front plate.

    Pulled off the plate! Now I just need to get the holes filled and the bumper re-painted. :-(
