I have one of the older Viper alarm systems with the 1/4 mile range and 2-way remote. Has anyone tried replacing the brain, remote, and antenna to upgrade the system? I wonder if the old components are compatible with one of the newer brains with the 1 mile range. If I don't have to pull and rewire everything, I might be interested in an upgrade.

depends on the models but if you want one of the new new ones like the 5701 or the 5901 and you have an older viper then no you will have to rewire. now if your going from a 791 to a 5900 then your golden. some of them you dont need to swap the brain just the remote and ant..

Thanks. I'll call DEI tomorrow, and see if it will work with what I have. I find it annoying that SST technology is only available on remote start systems 991/1091.
