Anyone put any thought into this?

I just picked up an '01 Viper R/T that I'm hoping to have on the road in about two or three weeks. The motor looks pretty bulletproof, and they're tried and true with high horsepower, gobs of torque and not bad pricing for parts or availability. Wrecked Vipers are all over the place, too.

8.0L V10 with 450hp and 500ft/lbs of torque sounds fun to me. Throw another few grand at that thing and you'll be talking somewhere in the 600's. Any reason this couldn't be thrown into a replica?

No problem. Just mount the engine and trans backwards like Lamborghini and kevkev60. That way you have a strong trans matched to the engine output. Kev used a "V" drive to reverse the output to the rear through driveshafts to a Corvette rear differential. Very nice system.

If you got the money anything is possible. I was thinking of a Viper V-10 for my build.

Supercharging the motor would make the car even faster with its additional horsepower. Having it in Kit would just be another Viper, if I have that engine I would rather put it on a Lambo shell and add Performance Dodge kits for suspension and other engine enhancements.
