Tightening up my coolant Clamps!
I just got my 2016 Viper XTX SE back from the dealership this afternoon. I bought it new just before the new year as a hold over and really liked it. Also bought a Sidewinder and got hooked on the power and strong pull. Long story short, they had an MPI trail turbo that I had them put on it as well as replacing the weak rods. I had them put on the Ulmer clutch kit with the weights preset from Ulmer as well. Had to pick it up after hours today and it was already loaded in my trailer.
I noticed it turned over a couple seconds longer before starting and idled rough. It spits and sputters and doesn't start to smooth out until about 5000 rpm and is boggy on acceleration and has a hard time to hit 8000rpm. Obviously something is not right. Was told they drove it and it ran good although he claims to not have opened it up as they were treating as a new engine.
My 11 year old son wanted to drive it and he even asked , "what did they do to it? It runs like crap!"
Obviously will be calling the dealer Monday morning and hoping it is something easy. I a bit angry and disappointed.
