Viper Gen V vs McLaren MP4

I thought the Viper did well considering it's a manual 6 speed/V10 VS the 7 speed dual clutch automatic/TT V8 in the McLaren.

I don't think people realize just how quick MP4 is, and the factory upgraded the older ones to match the current powered ones. Talking about a car that is like 3k lbs with fuel, the power, and dual clutch trans, these cars trap 135+ stock. Fact that the Viper can even hang with one is impressive.

Might want to ask Ed (ding dong) about that and see if he'll tell you how to get around it. Have you tried calling around to a few shops to see what they say?

I haven't asked a shop. From all the reading I've done on the forums seems like most people are running headers with cats. I doubt Ed would give me any info, but I would love to meet him and see his car since he is local to me.

pdv,

I'd love to meet you! I just got back into town from a LONG business trip that seriously overran. I should be all caught up in a few days and then maybe we could grab a beer?

I'd love to help you with your performance needs. What you want to do is actually very easy and doesn't require any sort of tuning magic.

When we speak I'll tell you/show you exactly what you need to do in order to go catless - and you are DEFINTIELY going to want to go catless in order to get the most out of your headers.

With that being said, you're going to need more than headers to hang with that McLaren based on the video I just watched. Maybe your buddies would want to level the playing field and race another car with TT?

Don't buy the headers until you and I have had a chance to talk!!

-Eddie

Catless is the only way I would go!!! We do lots of street racing so if you ever want a run LMK.. Thinking a little 150 shot can't hurt, we can discuss that later I'll send you a PM.

Roe Racing sells plug in line style O2 simulators that worked great on my GenIV ACR for no CEL I think they may work on the Gen V also. My Gen IV walks my Gen V pretty hard, I don't know how the GenV will run catless with not even a Mopar Programmer it may not make the same difference it did on my ACR.

Nitrous would get the job done though it seems a little bit tacky on a GenV IMO. Not to get too far off subject but I'm interested to see Ed's TT car in action once the tuning gets completed and he has time to take it out.
