Agreed. I can never get used to seeing a Viper drive by...its looks are dramatic, but the sound is not that different than one of those Honda/Mazda/Mitsu fart cans you see running around. Nice engine and performance, but the sound doesn't match the looks of the car. I guess it would be the same for me if I heard/saw it in a boat application, but that remains to be seen.

Some of you are relating to the time a Dodge Viper went by you. The problem with a Viper is you normally only hear the side pipe or 5 cylinders. I own a Viper and will agree at low RPM on the road I only hear the one side of the engine. UGH... But, at 4000-6000 rpm with pipes it sounds like an Indy car. My V12 car has a wicked sound that even the Viper can not attain. I do like a lumpy v8 at idle. But the more the pistons the better the sound. Heck, some guys like the sound of Harley I prefer a screaming 12000 rpm Jap bike.

A year ago I started a thread on Illmors when they came out..I was shot down...as usual for back then...

...but I WAS RIGHT....Illmor/Viper 625's and a drive to match them are reliable power from lots of cubic inches...

Someone was gonna do it, might as well have been me.

I actually left that sound clip playing and my wife came downstairs to ask what the hell I was listening to - I was laughing myself to tears.
