    Default 1996 Viper motor?

    Hey guys, just bought my first Viper and I'm being told different different things about my car. It's a 96 so does this car have the motor from 1997 or 1995? I'm being told the 97 motor has better internals than the 95. Thoughts? Thanks

    RT/10 or GTS?

    Picture of car and engine would help. If it is an RT, probably a Gen I, if it is a GTS, Gen 2

    Yep. 1996 was a weird year, hard tops were gen 2s, vert's gen 1... But if it was a late model 1996 may have been sold as a gen 2... Easiest way to tell is on the front facia, if you have a gen 1 front end then its a gen 1 engine, same for gen 2 front end, gen 2 engine.
