Projects - Rolls-Royce VIPER 522 TurboJet

Viper Main    Viper Spec's    Viper Background    Theory of Operation

 

This project is a long term restoration and we were lucky enough to have the opportunity to save this engine from the scrapheap.

 

 

The picture above is our Viper 522 on a trailer in Benjamin's driveway.

Now, we've been asked what on earth we are going to do with this thing. Truth is we don't really know. For us it's always been about the engines. But it would be nice to build it into some kind of vehicle.....

We are working at fitting it with an afterburner. We have the jet pipe and one of the fuel spray bars made but we still have a long way to go.
