    That's incredible Kai. What do you suppose top speed is? Is the mill even back in the Viper yet?

    The engine is getting put back in later this coming week. So, It should be ready to drive pretty soon.

    No idea what the top speed will be. Bone stock, a Viper will go over 190 (I've had mine to 188mph, and it was still pulling,) so with 200 extra hp, it has to be over 200mph.
    I'm probably taking the car to the Texas Mile (a one mile drag race) at the end of October, so I will get to find out how fast it will will go in a mile.

    Hope you're a skilled driver. It's easy to run out of talent really fast in a car like that!

    For all you car fiends, I am good friends with owner of the Ferrari P 4/5 and we will be going on a drive together in November when he finally has it back home after all its show appearances this fall. I should have some great pics in his shop and on the road...

    I'm seriously jealous.

    That car is the one that Ferrari should have built.

    Take some video.

    Is he bringing it down to Florida for ye olde Ferrari get-together? I'd love to see it in person, hopefully its one of those cars that pictures cannot do it justice.

    He's got a cute daughter too. Can you include some pictures of her, perhaps in a bikini lying across the hood? [​IMG]

    I am surprised that your S40 is so reliable.....I always got the impression the 40 series ain't as good as its bigger brothers.

    Yep, they do have that reputation.
    Somehow mine has managed to slip through the raindrops I guess.
    Then again the garage that services it, has an outstanding service.

    Cheers

    S40 has improved considerably after the first few years of production, or so I've been told. Reputation wasn't so good but today's models should be at least ok.
