If we’re being honest, the now discontinued Dodge Viper does have a rather uninspiring exhaust note. We’re not saying its V10 sounds bad by any means, it just doesn’t tickle our fancy the same way that the howling V8 Hemi engines of either the intimidating Dodge Challenger or Charger 392 muscle cars. Well, this video shows us that this can easily be remedied with a modified exhaust.
To be fair, most vehicles sound better with a modified exhaust since manufacturers have to follow laws and regulations in order to sell them. But in the case of this 2014 Dodge Viper, there’s an element to the exhaust that can only be heard when that 8.4-liter V10 is uncorked. It sounds much more intimidating, and not just because it’s louder.
We expected the entire video to feature footage of this gnarly sounding Dodge Viper, but unfortunately at the 1:15-minute mark it cuts to a clip of a Kia Optima equipped with an aftermarket exhaust.
With that said, hit play to hear the revised Dodge Viper exhaust system, and let us know what you think of it. Does it seem to make as much of a difference, or are we just schmucks who like obnoxiously loud vehicles? Speak to us in the comment section below.
