At first glance, you’d be forgiven for thinking this is a stock second generation Dodge Viper. But this Viper, nicknamed Juggernaut, is far, far from standard. Under the hood is a V10 from the final, fifth generation Viper, and its twin turbo setup delivers some staggering power and torque figures.
It’s the brainchild of Minneapolis based Nth Moto, who specialize in meticulously engineered drag strip monsters and insane street cars. The Viper appears to be one of their favorite vehicles to work with, and the Juggernaut is the utmost representation of what they can do. In a previous tune running 28 lbs of boost, it managed a 7.3 second quarter mile at 199 mph. Here, it made around 2,450 hp.
With the updates, the twin turbo Dodge Viper pushed 3,103.8 hp and 2,404 lb ft of torque, both at the wheels in the dyno test in the video. Plus, it sounds epic in the process. Viper V10s have never had quite the mellifluous noise of say, a Lamborghini or Lexus LFA V10, but this engine system sounds anything but boring.
And we say engine system for a reason. Nth Moto prides their work on being more than just a turbo kit. They develop each and every part to work in harmony with the others to produce maximum power and torque. Just looking at the beautiful engine bay is enough to see this, but the details are even more impressive.
This mindset allows them to run stock cylinder heads and a stock gen V engine block, bored out from factory 8.4 liters to 8.85 liters. Other key modifications include air intakes housed in the fog light holes, Nth Moto’s beautiful custom intake manifold, and a dual five inch exhaust. The Viper runs on One Ethanol R fuel, meaning this is essentially a flex fuel car.
We look forward to seeing what this wild twin-turbo Dodge Viper can do on the drag strip when it’s running the full capability this motor offers.
