But ultimately I cut it out of the video.Attachment 36655
    Why not doing a separate video about all the outtakes? For sure that would be as interesting as the main one ;-)

    I couldn't stop thinking about the cam change for 98 MY, hope you don't mind, Cody ;-)

    I went down to my basement and grabbed my old Viper Quarterly magazines, looking for one that had some info on the "new" MY 98. I finally found something in the spring 1998 issue. In this article, Herb Helbig states, that the only under hood change were the new tubular stainless headers and other than that the Viper remained mechanically unchanged. Now, could still be, that they just didn't mention the cam change if it was that minimal....

    I just love to browse those old magazines, maybe even more so because I became a Viper owner in 2012, so I missed the golden Gen2 era when it was real. Reading those articles and looking at all those photos is almost like travelling back in time ;-)

    It didn't mention the first time option of having a reset alarm key hole hidden in the glove box, but we know that happen in 1998 too.

    I glanced at some parts catalogs to see what they list for part numbers and it shows 3 different part numbers that I can find. Might be more, but I don't have all the year parts books. In 1997 the Cam Part # is listed as 4763 708. By 2000 the Cam Part # is listed as 4763 708AC even though we know it changed in 2000. That is most likely because the book might have been written in 1999 for the upcoming year and that would be in line with them using a revised cam for 98 and 99. In 2001 the Cam Part # is listed as 5037 151AA. I can't say for sure either way, but I do specifically recall being told there was a minor cam revision in 1998. I've owned several 1998's and think they are a great year for Viper, but I love all of them so I'm not exactly the best person to pick good and bad years. I think they are all special.

    Sad thing is people will still join a forum and make their first question what year is the best to buy. Followed by a barrage of other unintelligent questions.
    Red. Because I didn't have to settle for blue.

    Great video, the 2000 + engines as you mentioned went with the eutectic pistons which as you noted are not a great option for supercharged engines. This is particularly true not just because of the change from forged to eutectic, but because the rods were changed to a longer rod. This change meant the pistons were now shorter and lighter as well as a ring package that was tighter and closer to the top of the piston. Though these pistons won’t tolerate detonation and poor tuning in supercharged applications, they will however work great in properly tuned higher hp, naturally aspirated applications. Thanks for taking the time to produce the video. I particularly loved your enthusiasm of the car.

    Awesome Video, Wow you just did not stop talking

    I learned a lot of new stuff from that Video, I never knew about the light and Window date codes, also the laser alignment with shim packing.
