I AM GOING TO GO OUT ON A LIMB AND SAY THAT THIS IS THE WORLD'S FIRST TWIN TURBO SRT THAT IS A RUNNING CAR. WE PLAN TO START TESTING IT ON THE ROAD AND DYNO THIS COMING WEEK. WE ARE GOING TO BUILD POWER SLOWLY BY STARTING AT 5-6 PSI AND GO UP FROM THERE. WE WILL KEEP EVERYONE POSTED ON THE PROGRESS. HERE ARE A COUPLE OF VIDEOS OF THE CAR RUNNING IN THE SHOP:

MY GUYS IN THE SHOP WERE AWESOME AS USUAL AND THIS WEEK WERE ABLE TO GET THE TWIN TURBO SRT RUNNING WHILE ALSO FINISHING ANTHONY 98 GTS'S VENOM 700R.

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE!

I can't wait to see it run!!!

I don't think people know what it takes to hang TT's on an SRT!!
Unless youve ridden in one, most people cant even comprehend how nice a TT viper is! I would bet that the SRT TT will be the nicest driving, smoothest, most powerful viper EVER.

So why did you go with supercharger?

Dont get me wrong, I love my SC system, but the cost for horsepower was a factor in my decision at the time. Both cars are insanely fast the TT is just faster.

I have always been partial to turbos, but never heard anything bad about superchargers, they both just ram air thru your engine. If Heffner did gen 1's I probably would have sent him my car. I heard DLM is working on a turbo system, is Heffner going to also?

Thanks guys, we are pretty excited about it. We are planning to do road testing this week to dial in the air/fuel calibration for 5-6 psi and then get a baseline dyno test in the next few weeks. We dont expect any big power numbers for a while. Lots of learning to do before turning up the boost. But for now, the car idles and runs smoothly and quietly. So we are off to a good start in my opinion. I may give a few rides to local Viper owners in the next week or so, so I will let them tell you how it feels on the road.
