I know that the SRX pipes will not fit (my opinion). My buddy has the Viper and we did a lot of work to it this summer...Speedworx head, tempaflow, clutch work and new SLP pipes. The way the pipes fit in the SRX sit different then the way the trips fit in the Viper. My buddy who has the Viper, his bro has a 00 SRX and comparing, studding, looking hard at the two side by side...the hood on the viper wouldnt even fit by the looks if you stuffed the srx pipes on it.
But I guess anything is possible these days...hell people are putting 800 trips in an RR chasis so I guess anything is possible.
1. 98srx pipes,manifolds,and muffler(aftermarket or stock). Newer pipes have the sliding ends on them and wont give enough room.
if stock muffler is used you will need a srx chain case cover and muffler mount for the frame.
2. 2001 srx cdi box.
3. Wire with connector to install into your harness for the temperature sending unit to connect to the cdi box. Vipers do not use this to adjust timing curve.
4. Resistor (i have the size writen down somewhere) to trick the guage into thinking the sled is warm and temp sender is hooked up to it. your guage will still work but will now work but will go through the cdi box first.
5. srx jugs and powervalves or make flange adapters to go from oval to round ports and make up the distance lost with the viper cyinders. If you use the srx jugs you should port them to viper specs. Why? Why not?
6. For cooling and straight compression you may want to run srx or mega power heads, this is just an option.
7. Carberation, I used the srx needles and nossles as I was having problems and thought that it would help. Not sure as of yet if this is needed. What I know is needed is 40 or 42.5 pilots. Yes these pipes run that small a pilot. I ran the 40 pilots and it ran fine, once in a while the idle would hang up with them in. My slp pipes ran 50 pilots to get rid of this problem and make it run right off idle. I was told pilots are 20% of fuel delivery,?. The mains I was running at the end of the year was 157.5 mains and the sled ran great untill it blew appart after 3mile run at wot with. I later found out that dumb *** me had had the viper box in the sled the whole winter. This would explain the blow up and the look of deto on the plugs and exhaust side of pistons. This year I'll check twice to make sure I have the right box in.
This was not an easy fit and they do fit tight but it can be done. With the stock srx muffler the sled is quieter than a srx. This is because of all the cones in the airbox(i believe).
This exhaust system with stock muffler is 12lbs heavier than the stock viper exhaust and probly 20lbs heavier than any other aftermarket exhaust.
