"Night and Day" Mods
 
Hey guys!

We all know about those surefire "permagrin" mods like turbos, superchargers, and nitrous but I'm sure we've all had that mod that wasn't everything we expected it to be. Well I'm asking you to share what mod has made a "night and day" difference for you and would do all over again without hesitation and why! :thumbup:

A front lip. I think the car needs one.

xkloid 05-29-2013 09:26 PM

Range AFM disable, big time. Amp, sub, and new door speakers. Blade spoiler.

SSMickey 05-29-2013 09:33 PM

3.91 gears. Really woke the car up and it feels several hundred pounds lighter.

midwest mcnasty 05-29-2013 09:33 PM

dovetail spoiler by far the car needed something better back there. a close 2nd would be the mrt v2.0 exhaust.

3.91

Injen LT intake. I really wasn't expecting much. Boy was I wrong.

Exhaust most definitely! I had new exhaust within 2 days of bringing her home and it took that long bc I brought her home on a Friday at 9pm. First thing Monday she was in the shop getting flowmasters. These cars need a good rumble, way too quiet stock. And a CAI helped with throttle and sound as well. First 2 mods that should be done IMO

#1 for me was putting 3.70 gears in the auto. #2 was probably the tranny tune and removing AFM.

I've read that the 3.70's are better for the auto than the 3.91's due to the transmission gearing.

1. Headers, intake, throttle body and tune. + ~100 HP.
2. Giovanna Kilis black wheels. Looks awesome!!

That's pretty much what most people on the forum are saying. It would be fun to try 3.91s or even shorter just to see how it felt. It'd probably be really wild on the auto. The nice thing about upgrading the gears is that even 6th gear becomes very useable. You still have to downshift if you want that kick-in-your-face power, but you can keep it in 6th on the highway and still accelerate reasonably.

Anybody else have some must have mods? I hear suspension is totally worth it? I wouldn't know, I've never done suspension.

camaro2lt 06-04-2013 10:37 PM

sway bars are worth it

Murnaneaa 06-04-2013 11:34 PM

i would say headers-- $280 and gears-- $699.... this is what i paid

Biscuitpie 06-04-2013 11:58 PM

Manual cutouts (always open unless on a roadtrip so didn't need electric). $60 for parts, $80 for labor

Subthump amp and subwoofer. Huge difference. Haven't done any performance mods yet.

I've been contemplating this mod. Didn't know if it was completely worth it or not but I guess it is :D
