I was looking at some pics of '95 and up and they put the steps in and back cut the pad is the differences that I see. At least on '99 and newer had the cut back.

The boat was originally built as a straight vee from 1996CY to 1998CY. In 1998CY it was stepped. Then in the first half of 2000CY the running surface was modified again. The 2001MY and newer boats should be the best running of the step hulls.

That boat with 454 Mag MPIs (385hp) should run solidly in mid 70's.

thanks, I do like the '99 a little better, but I guess that is a little slower hull. Thanks for the info

I have been reading lots of posts on the Viper speed over the years and this is what I learned.
The 454's in any year are slow, the 502's aren't too bad espically in the 2002 and newer models. Possible to get upper 70's with the 502's in salt water with the 502's.
Best motor's reguardless of year are the 500's. Lots of spunk out of the hole, great midrange and top end will be deturmined by the match between the hull ( depends on year ) and the prop.
1999 had an improved hull over prior years and another improvement was made 2001 or 2002.
My two cents is what ever you get go wuth Blue Motors !!!!!!!s
