Excellent! I can log in from work!
I'm Rick and have a '96 GTS in Wichita Falls, Tx. I'm in the Air Force.
Nice work putting this site together. I learned about this forum from Chuck Tator (that dude know a lot about Vipers!).
Cheers!

My name is Peter, have owned my '98 RT/10 for a little over three years and love it.  Lightly modded and low mileage, kind of a modified "garage queen".  When I figure out how to post a picture, I'll put up a pic or two of my RT.

Good luck with the new site!

Hey guys,

Thanks.  We're glad to have you.  Chuck is a good man and I have to admit that I've called him myself a few times for help or clarification.  Enjoy.  Check out www.vipernation.com (our ezine) for stories and pics.

We have acess to many Viper geniuses here, eveb if you do need to phone Chuck and a few of the other guys.

We hope that the How-to section will be informative for you as well.

Just wanting to check in. I have been a car guy all my life. My first car was a 1993 Z28 Camaro(Lindsay) then I had a 1981 Trans Am 4.9 n/a (Layla). I have always been obsessed with the Gen one Vipers, my favorite being the 1989 Concept. I finally was able to afford one, 1994 Viper RT/10, stock no mods, painted from black the the 96' white with blue stripes scheme, 14.5m on the od. I love this car and couldn't be more happy with it.

14.4 miles would mean that it drives around the garage on wheel dollies (like the ones in the How to section). 

Where do you live Goatman?  Going to see you competeing?

I live in Houston, Tx. I just bought the car last week and have put two and a half tanks of fuel through it. It will hardly be a garage queen. I have to do some required maintenance before and competing. This car still had the paper head gaskets in it so I'm saving some cash to have them replaced along with all the other gaskets necessary, ie valve covers, intake, and exhaust manifold. I will track it after thats completed.

Valve covers use a rubber O ring.  I have a set of stiock shorty headers from my 2001 GTS if you'd like to upgrade a few hp and save about 50# of weight?  Exhaust Gask are SS and hi-temp silicone is good enough for that side.

My shorty headers were removed from car before 3,ooo miles and I have the connector pipes, elbow and clamps.  $350 + shipping.

I was actually thinking of going with long tube headers. Would there be a big difference in performance between the two?

Everything is relevent.  If you are planning to keep to "slightly modified" then the difference in performance isn't much but as the hp increases the difference is larger.  I owned a598rwhp/644rwtq Roe Racing blown 98 GTS that had only the w/m injection, blower kit, K&Ns air filters (with "How To" modified airbox), smooth tubes, Hiflow Cats and exhuast.  Stock shorty tube headers on that car and the 2000 Paxton ACR (580rwhp and 802rwhp with Nitrous) that also had stock shorty headers on it, Corsa exhaust and Hi-flow Cats - rest all stock.  My Sapphire has a slightly built engine, TNT long tube headers, no cats, Corsa track exhaust, cam, 1.7 rockers, ported heads, w/m injection, cone filters, custom airbox, pistons, Roe Racing Blower kit (10psi) and about 720+rwhp. 

I'll sell my excellent condition shorties for $350 and throw in a set of smooth tubes (if you don't already have them) for $350 & ship.  Last set of used long tube headers I bought (and resold) were $1100. 

On your car the biggest advantage is the weight savings (50#) and getting rid of exhaust manifolds that often crack.  I heard 20hp, but I think that's a little high on a stock engine.

I was actually thinking of going with long tube headers. Would there be a big difference in performance between the two?
