Default Increased Maintenance intervals with turbo viper?

Just curious if you guys are doing oil changes and different maintenance more frequently with the turbo'd viper?



Just bought one and was curious. Don't know the service history on the sled a bought so i will be doing an oil change as well as checking the sled over closely.

One oil change a year is normal. The cat chassis is what you should be worried about.. Check ALL bearings. Especially your drive shaft bearings and jackshaft bearings.

I haven't noticed any additional maintenance needs with mine. Change the oil at the start of the year and go over the chassis just like any other sled.

The worst thing I've had to fix that wasn't my own doing has been a loose steering bolt that is down behind the right side A-Arm.

awesome, I will check that as well. The other issue with this sled is it has 7400 kms on it, not sure how long the turbos are good for before they need a rebuild. But i will check it as well since it looks like it has to come off to get at the chaincase.
