Just picked up this 2003 Viper last week. With the Paxton installed and a conservative tune, it dynoed 645rwhp. Its had some more mods done since, including a water/methanol injection kit. I hope to get the new exhaust installed and redynoed after summer is over.

It also has 19x10 and 19x13 CCW 505a wheels. The Pirelli's are 275/35R19 and 355/25R19 out back...they hook up surprisingly well.

After coming from a C5 and C6, this car is a welcome change of pace. I still can't get over how much more I enjoy the driving experience of this car over my previous Vette's. -this car is raw and thats exactly what I'm looking for. Now that I have a house with a garage, and my FSC as my DD, I can truly enjoy the car for what it is...a toy. My Vette's always fell somewhere inbetween DD and toy duty - and I was never satisfied with it being both.

Lemme know what you think! I'm working on getting better video's and pics of the interior/engine etc this weekend.

Even though I had planned to wait on a better camcorder over the weekend, I went ahead and took a few more pics and a couple videos tonight.

My camera only really seemed to pick up the Paxton whine, and not much of the exhaust. Next time, I'll take one from the engine and one from the exhaust. I did three revs, increasingly in volume...although its hard to tell

My girl and I need to work on our timing here. I didn't really even get into it because I knew I was going to be going too fast for the angle she was shooting at. At least you get a little idea of how it sounds

Vipers have always been my favorite muscle/supercar. I love the fact they are a v10 with an amazing sound as well as their power. Im loving those wheels too. Im guessing it has a retractable hard top as well ?

Nah, just a manual folding soft top...I'll hopefully get a pic or two with the top up tomorrow. These cars look surprisingly wicked with the top up as well, IMO

How many miles on it?
32xxx...higher mileage for a Viper, but the previous owner had the car since 4200 miles, so I know the complete history.

Nice.. One of my buddies has had three of them this year they are nice cars but his current 08 hardtop coupe looking on is the best.. His is some kind of special edition with 620hp stock.. They are sharp cars
