yeah right the srt-10 still wont lose, and also they are building a coupe soon with a hemi with around 600-650hp that will murder it, even if they had the blue devil vette...

I whole heartily doubt it, and about the Viper coupe, it is true.

EDIT: Never heard of a 650 hp Hemi, but I heard about the new Viper Coupe comming...

Re: Re: Re: line up boys, and bring your drool towels

you can ask viper_10 in the viper forum of AF, he can tell you about it he said they add around 10 throttle bodies in the hemi engine and stuff like that, and each throttle body adds around 10hp...

Re: line up boys, and bring your drool towels

And whos his source? Sounds like utter BS to me. The one thing ive learned talking to people on the internet about cars is 90% of them are liers.

Re: line up boys, and bring your drool towels

oh yeah you never heard of the system. its called the deca-port injection model, was used scarcely on the old v-10 f-150s that needed to make 900 hp and 1000ft-lbs of torque so that they could be used by construction companies to drive up the side of the country's dams to check for leaks, not many people know about it...
