-custom painted bowties (flat black with SIM middle)
-LED DRLs
-Adaptive Performance DRL Harness
-AACstyle interior LED conversion kit (white)
-AACstyle license plate LEDs
-MGW shifter know
-chrome turn signal bulbs to give a clear look
-Lloyd's custom floor mats
-Camaro SS black license plate frame

Possible future mods:
-Tints
-Side vent decals from RPI Designs (most likely the ABS black plastic)
-AAcstyle ABL footwell lighting
-MGW short throw shifter
-Exhaust, not sure which one yet :bellyroll:
-Intake, most likely roto-fab or halltech
-Silver door and dash panels

question. what does a GMPP catback exaust do? improve power or sound or both? and how much do they usually cost with installation?? just wonder, because I may be considering that upgrade but I am not that car upgrade savvy as many ppl on here are.

Chevyrocker 04-06-2009 03:55 PM

Any exhaust (cat-back or full) will upgrade both sound and power.

bluch 04-06-2009 03:57 PM

$$$?

Chevyrocker 04-06-2009 04:04 PM

go to www.gmaccessories.net, pick a dealer and pull up the Camaro and it will show you prices including installation.

bluch 04-06-2009 04:10 PM

Cat-backs on the C6 vettes did nothing for power only sound. The camaro stock exhaust could be more restrictive. I would have to wait till somebody did a comparison on a dyno. My thoughts for now is just do a cam with headers, electric cutouts with stock mufflers. Headers w/hiflow cats and deleting the resonators should increase the sound.

GeorgiaSS 04-06-2009 08:16 PM

I dont blame him on that. My son is 17. He will be riding around in a 12 year old pickup till he learns how to respect horsepower.

LosXC451 04-06-2009 08:19 PM

:iono:does anyone know actually if the door sills say camaro or Chevrolet? because in photos I have seen in comes with the ones that say Chevrolet, but on the accessories website they say Chevrolet also.:iono:

Camaro68 04-06-2009 08:22 PM

  • GMPP Short Headers
  • Hurst Short Throw Shifter (MIGHT ENGRAVE WITH SS OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT)

EXTERIOR:
  • Maybe GFX (ONLY SIDE AND FRONT THOUGH)
  • Black powder coated rims
  • Molded splash guards (silver)
  • Spoiler in black
  • Mirrors in black
  • Door Handles in black

INTERIOR:
  • Interior trim kit (silver)
  • Door sill decals

Every thing in mind is good for you plan but IMO if you are getting an LS3 that is the wrong cover and the mud gaurds i am not too sure about i would have to see them installed first none the less the perfect engine covers would have to be the original LS3 Corvette look it really looks amazing and really choice..........:cool::headbang::bellyroll:

At first i really did not want to get the molded splash guards but I am going t be driving it a lot, so I don't want it to get scratches or get dirty or something.

When you install your splash gaurds make sure you post some pics. ,iwpould really like to see them....:popcorn:

Black chrome rims
 
LosXc, the RS midnight silver rims are not really that dark try some Black chrome on on the wheels just have the stock one black chromed that will look sweet and choice to your camaro color discription.....:happyanim::w00t::thumbup::bellyro ll:

yea they should fix the midnight wheels

Panther67 04-06-2009 10:43 PM

Personal preference
 
Its not about fixing unless you want to pay extra for chrome when you can just have the chrome done after market to give the black chrome look that is just too sexy of a look.......:drool:

LosXC451 04-10-2009 07:27 AM

decided not to get the splashbuards after seeing them

I like your idea of engraving the hurst shifter. it sounds badass.

Milk 1027 04-10-2009 02:16 PM

FYI. The hurst shifter will not look like the one you have on the picture.

It will look the same as a stock shifter but the internals will be different.

So you might want to look for an aftermarket shifter ball, if you want to engrave it.

really? where did it say this at?

Oh well, I thought the pictures of the Hurst Shifter were ugly; the leather was too far up on the shifter. I thought the leather should not cover the actual metal rod of the shifter... it makes it not look as legit.

I guess I should cancel my hurst shifter order then lol

Talked to my dealer yesterday, the entire tranny has to be dropped to install the shifter. What a Pain the the arse. Thought I would share my frustration. :mad0260:

nol300 04-21-2009 01:17 PM

They are wrong.

sounds like the dealer just wants to charge you more labor. I've never heard of having to do that when installing a B&M Shifter.
