Only on M3forum would you find people calling the Viper V10 engine a POS.

And you take your car to Pep Boys. Perhaps it is time to reevaluate your decisions about things in life.

FYI, the Viper is consistently one of the highest performing cars of its era.

Please explain why the motor isn't. As I said before, I love the viper, but that motor is just a little sad at 60hp/l.

It pretty much is when it comes to evaluating the technology an engine is packing. Achieving high torque with excessive displacement is more of an approach than it is an accomplishment.
