    I picked up my first Viper

    Well after so many years of dreaming of owning a Viper I finally picked one up out of Seguin, TX outside of San Antonio.

    Its a 2003 Dodge viper SRT-10 red. The exact color i wanted and have been looking for. This one has 28k miles on it.

    Now i have to figure out how to change my name lol

    Thank you! The guy said the previous owner owned it for 10 years and only took it to car shows and waxed it lol. The only mods are an aftermarket stereo that i will change for sure and shifter but i got the stock one. (The car does have alpine speakers atleast in the center and a JL sub. not sure if thats stock or not) The power steering pump, pulley, and high pressure line were just changed by a viper tech at Ancira dealer in San Antonio and also an oil cooler line because of weeping.

    It get SOOOO hot inside lol but the ac works great

    That's good! Can tell he took care of it! Yeah the JL is definitely aftermarket. when I got mine, the first thing I did was change ALL fluids, belts, hoses, plugs, Tires (Made a HUGE difference), LED lighting and 3.55 gears(favorite mod!). FYI, Jon B with Partsrack is truly very helpful and extremely knowledgeable about these rides.

    Thats awesome. I feel like changing the plugs when i get it back home but we will see how i feel lol. My friend has an 03 and he did 3.55 gears and loves it. Was it a whole diff change or did you just change the ring and pinion? The Kenwood radio thats in it sounds like absolute crap and you cant hear base at all. My buddy has a stock radio and it sounds much much better then this aftermarket kenwood. But i would love to do the LED lighting and ive thought about the 3.55 gears.

    Get an aftermarket exhaust and the car will be much cooler. The Gen III stock exhaust w/crossover really throws a lot of heat.
    Make your own luck

    Yeah there are multiple threads about the radio setups. Have to go completely custom if you really want any base. I did a Pioneer head unit and door speakers and plugged sub box and made a significant difference in overall sound! For the gears, hit up Jon B at Parts Rack. He responds quickly and most likely will call you if you leave a contact number. Explains everything in the kit. Wont stear ya wrong. I paid $666 for everything needed.
