Best mod...
 
Thoughts on best mod for $250.

Mindz 06-21-2013 04:56 PM

Personally I feel as though I'm the best mod on the site. I'll take your $250 bucks. Thanks!


FIRST MOD EVER SHOULD BE A FIRE EXTINGUISHER!

In all honesty, what do you want to do with your car? There is no best mod overall. If you want visual impact, I prefer the heritage grill or LED/SMD sidemarker lights.

If you want performance, Possibly look at Intakes or brake ducting from the ZL1. I believe it fits the SS and will allow a little bit more air to help cool your brakes.

+1 on the fire extinguisher.

I have the intake. Brake ducting, huh? I'll have to look into that.

Best mod? Depends on where you want to go .. I fully agree so far; however, the skip shift will probably be the best mod in my opinion. Do you really want the Camaro to drive you .. or you to drive the Camaro.

Nuff said!

Black badging all the way around

Mindz 06-21-2013 05:05 PM

It's just a small plastic piece that routes some air from the lower grill into the wheel well. I believe the ss has the same mounting holes for the piece. I have no idea on what it costs though. Those are the only things that I know of the could be under 250. Short throw shifter is another option also.

Catch can.

ff815 06-21-2013 05:46 PM

I have the following: short throw, CAI and black bowties.
The brake ducting sounds interesting. Still on the fence with the catch can. Several mechanics/car guys have said it's not necessary. I was thinking about a strut tower brace and drive shaft brace.

If you don't know what you want, you are simply wasting money.

ff815 06-21-2013 05:55 PM

I know what I want; it's MORE than $250. That's why I used the term "thoughts" in the first post. I'm just looking to bounce around some ideas.

+1 on the catch can, then put the rest toward that expensive mod you are looking at.

Best regards,

Short throw shifter is the best one close to your price range. I have the MGW with the composite race knob and I love it. Window tint, and heritage grill are great too.

Best mod is a lien free title, put it towards that.

I agree with this... there is no end-all-be-all mod for X amount of dollars... in the past two weeks (since I've owned my car) I've installed the CAI Cold Air Intake, Apex Washer Bottle Relocation Kit & Cold Air Scoop, Skip Shift Eliminator, Elite Engineering Oil Catch Can, Heritage Grille (bowtie delete, with EmblemPros SS bracket), Stillen ducted lower grille, and I have a VMAX PTB on the way... these cars are a blank canvas for you to start with... make it your own, and achieve the results you want... if it were me, I'd get the heritage grille... I think they should be coming from the factory with them, but that's just me. ShopChevyParts.com has the painted Heritage Grille for about $283, and the finish was outstanding on mine.

Just my opinion, of course. Do as you like.
