2005 Ram SRT-10 Dodge " Viper " Motor
The Dodge Ram SRT - 10 "VIPER" is a sport pick up truck that was produced by the American automaker Dodge as a limited edition series.Unlike previous Ram trucks, the SRT - 10 was built solely for the purpose of SPEED.DevelopmentThe Dodge Ram SRT was created by DaimlerChrysler's PVO (Performance Vehicle Operations) division, using Dodge Viper and Plymouth Prowler engineers. Extensive wind tunnel testing was used in styling the exterior of the Ram SRT-10. The Dodge Ram VTS was painted Banzai Blue with dual white skunk stripes, housed a 8.0 L (488 cid) V10, a six-speed Borg-Warner manual gearbox, and 17-inch (430 mm) Viper GTS wheels wrapped in BF Goodrich 275/60-HR17 Comp TIA HR4 tires.OverviewThe SRT-10 featured an 8.3 litres (Chrysler 8.3 L Viper V10) V10. This engine produced 500 bhp (373 kW; 507 PS) at 5,600 rpm and 525 lb*ft (712 N*m) of torque at 4,200 rpm. The regular cab, with a total curb weight of 5,130 lb(2,330 kg), reached a top speed of 154 mph (248 km/h), and could accelerate from O to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 4.9 seconds, whereas the Quad Cab, weighing 5,618 lb (2,548 kg), achieved 0-60 mph in 5.6 seconds and reached a top speed of 147 mph (237 km/h). The regular cab could complete the 1/4 mi (400 m) in 13.6 seconds at 106 mph (171 km/h), the Quad Cab in 13.7 seconds at 100 mph (160 km/h). The Quad Cab generated .83 g 300 ft (91 m) skidpad,DrivetrainThe V10 Viper engine delivered 90 percent of its torque from 1500 to 5600 rpm. The cast aluminum cyliinder block had cast-iron liners and cross-bolted main caps. The bore and stroke had been increased over previous Viper models. Compression ratio, firing order, rod length, block height and block length were unchanged from the second-generation Viper engine. The regular cab featured a Tremec T-56 transmission, while the Quad Cab utilized a 48RE four-speed automatic transmission modified from the Ram Heavy Duty transmission. Both regular cab and Quad Cab used a Dana 60 rear axle.SuspensionPVO engineers modified the Ram Heavy Duty's rack and pinion steering and independent front suspension for use in the Ram SRT-10. A fully hydroformed Dodge Ram frame was used in conjunction with a custom-tuned suspension, lowering the Ram SRT-1 O's ride height one inch in the front and 2.5 inches in the rear. Bilstein shock absorbers, performance-tuned springs and unique aerodynamic aids were used to enhance the Ram SRT-10's higher-speed performance. An additional 5th shock was used on the rear axle to prevent wheel hop during wheelspin.ExteriorThe Ram SRT-10 had a unique hood that featured a wide power bulge and honeycomb grill hood scoop. The hood scoop allowed cool air to enter as well as forcing hot air to exit from the engine bay, thus helping the engine to run cooler. "Viper Powered" badges were added to the sides of the power bulge, to indicate the SRT-10 engine under the hood. Large chrome Srt-10 logos were mounted to the driver and passenger side doors and rear tailgate right side on the Quad cab and Single Cab 2005 models replaced in 2006 by smaller chrome and red srt10 logo badges . All models were outfitted with large molded kickerpanels painted to match body color. Another exterior feature was a tonneau cover with an attached spoiler that was supposed to come standard on the 2005 Quad Cab version and all 2006 models, but due to manufacturing problems was not installed on nearly half of the Ram SRT-1 Os intended. To help remedy this situation, Dodge added a $1000 credit and a regular spoiler to the Ram SRT-10s that did not receive the tonneau cover. In addition to style, the spoiler also helped with air flow and provided a reduction in lift and drag. The Ram SRT-10 had a bed size of 6 ft 3 in (1.91 m), giving the regular cab an overall length of 17 ft 7 in (5.36 m), and 19 ft 2 in (5.84 m) overall length for the Quad Cab. The Ram SRT-10 also had a lower ride height than regular Ram trucks.
