    I dunno if it will. This could be the end of the Viper.

    The Hellcat engine is to big to fit in the Viper, also Dodge is testing a supercharger for the Viper. So the viper will be top dog again.

    It will not surprise me to see a super charged engine in the Viper, but, it will not be this one. The profile and weight is wrong for the Viper.

    The Viper has been V10 from the start and I think moving away from the V10 really gives up a big piece of the Viper's soul... a supercharged V10 would be perfect... and the Viper should be top dog, by far IMHO.

    ive read that the 6.2sc is too tall to fit into the viper...pretty sure Ralph covered it.....he also talked about the V10=Viper.....is the current Viper V10 based upon the same V10 from 1995 or whenever it came out?

    Why in the world would they put a V8 in the Viper??

    That's literally like having a 4 cylinder in a Hellcat....

    Yep Ralph has publically confirmed hellcat won't fit in the Viper. A supercharged version of the V10 has to be coming.
