Here’s an idea: take Chrysler’s most potent, most capable and more advanced supercar it has ever built – powered by a 8.4L V10 producing 645 horsepower no less – and radically increase that power output by effectively double via a pair of turbochargers. That’s precisely what the mad scientists at RSI Racing Solutions are doing day-in/day-out, and it’s just beautiful magic.
The parts list is also nothing to sneer at, as the complete package almost has to reinvent the Viper T/A (Track Attack) from the ground up: twin Precision 72mm turbochargers (Optional 76mm Turbos Available), two Tial MV-R wastegates, two Tial Q Blow Off Valves, custom stainless turbo headers and V-Band turbo piping, and a custom front mount intercooler, and RSI’s own stainless exhaust.
But wait, that’s not all! In order to digest all of this extra boost, the Viper’s V10 is also completely rebuilt into a 528 Stroker beginning with a RSI-spec blueprint and balanced shortblock consisting of a custom crankshaft and billet connecting rods, a RSI camshaft, custom forged pistons with thick wall wrist pins and spiral locks, Clevite race main and rod bearings, billet main caps and ARP hardware.
On top, the V10 gets RSI’s own Race Series cylinder heads, Jesel roller rockers, oversized valves, all new valvetrain, and a port-matched intake manifold. Of course, there’s a ton of work put into the fuel system and drivetrain including beefing up the transmission and clutch assembly, and RSI race series axles. All new Motec engine management and wiring are installed, and RSI even offers a custom Appearance Package.
All of this adds up to an amazing 93-octane pump gas-friendly 1,000-plus-rwhp, or an even more bonkers 1,500-plus rwhp if running E85 or race gas. What will this all cost you? The begins at $89,950 and that’s not including the price of the actual car. RSI is undoubtedly one of the leaders in Dodge Viper performance, specializing in forced induction systems for this particular car, and their custom product development is all but unmatched.
