GM Performance Accessories?
 
Just wondering if GM will offer any accessories that improve the performance and/or driveability of the Camaro? Tried the search, but I didn't find what I was looking for. It might be a little to early to ask this question, so speculation is also welcomed.

I asked Fbodfather about accessories in a pm. I haven't asked permission to post it here, so instead I'll simply paraphrase. Basically, he said that they are working on a lot of accessories, and some will be approved for production and some will not. I have a feeling the performance parts will be the same way.

Oh good, thanks for the heads up. Any speculations?

Expect an intake, a performance and touring exhaust, some sort or interior trim package, a front end cover, a car cover, alternative rims, window and front end bug deflectors, stripe and sticker packages (possibly offered by Chevrolet, not GMPP), a different spoiler, a center console desk-like organizer and arm rest, possibly stage kits or a supercharger kit (no guarantees), and a ground effects kit. This is what GMPP will offer for many cars.

I concur. Personally, I'm hoping for the gfx kit from the accesories photos - exhaust tips and all. Baring that, I'd settle for just the front lip from the photos =D. Also, I want a metal filler door like in the photos, but I want mine to be powdercoated/painted black.

I will be making decals/striping kits for the new Camaro.

Awesome, thats what I wanted to hear. A Supercharger? I didn't expect that, even the possibility has me intrigued. I guess the Supercharger would be for the SS V8 engine. How much you think that would go for installed if offered?

I only said that because the old Cavalier had a supercharger kit for the 2.2L. No, it was not for the Cobalt. Also, the Mustang has a supercharger kit, so I think Chevrolet should do it, too. Unfortunately, Chevrolet stopped asking for my opinion when they heard my proposal to make a nuclear reactor Camaro.

Oh, hopefully Chevy will offer the Supercharger to compete with the Mustang. The Z/28 is nice but I worry how expensive it will be, a SS with Supercharger will probably be plenty for me. A nuclear reactor Camaro sounds cool, but probably too nose heavy. ;)

They said it wouldn't have the right exhaust note.

And the emissions would poison the environment. But imagine the horsepower output!

I still want to know if the short throw shifter will be available for the Aisin - I may actually consider buying it if it is.

Good news in here, not that it's groundbreaking, but looking at the GMPP catalog for 2008 it seems that they are working to have a lot of parts and accessories ready for us. To quote the catalog "As for our involvement, we can tell you that there are Camaro enthusiasts from several divisions of General Motors that are working on special editions, handling kits, engine
parts, accessories, and general hot rod parts that should help you keep the wrenches flying for months after your purchase."
So now do I drop an LS7 in the SS or the base model?

Can you please give me a link?

It's 33.8 MB, there's just a tid bit on the Camaro, but there should be plenty to apply to the LS3 in there.

Speedy1975 07-31-2008 02:22 PM

So, can someone educate me on GMPP? Do they keep the warranty and all that good stuff? I haven't owned a GM vehicle in 15 years.
