Yep, used to have a 2011, but traded in many years ago. I will never again make the mistake of buying a muscle car with a V6. I didn't really get what all the V8 fuss was about until I got one. ...

Not sure what the reasoning for AFM was...probably mostly govt. crap and also to avoid a gas guzzler tax (which is more govt. crap). Bottom line for me is, it's garbage. The funny thing is, most of...

Fine, but Camaros aren't luxury cars. If you want the goodies, buy a luxury car. If you want power, buy a V8. Guys, feel free to blow your money on whatever you want, but paying damn near $40K for...

Not really crap I need or care about. Give me a nice interior and a big V8 that sounds good, and I'm happy. To each their own, though.

It's a 2012 SS. I guess I am just in shock because the new V6 costs what I paid for my SS three years ago. Yeah, I know prices increase, but geez. They are getting close to European territory.

Maybe they've improved it, but I doubt it. It was dumb, dumb decision on the V8. The special lifters they use are known to fail, it sounded like crap with any aftermarket exhaust, and in the end,...

I don't do anything special as far as "prepping" it for the winter. I just park it in the garage for most of the season, and on days when the roads are clear of snow and salt, I'll take it out for a...

So the V6 as tested was $38K?:twitch: That's crazy. Also, I see they added cylinder deactivation. Another WTF? All I can say is, my 5th gen is in no danger of being sold. These prices are a bit...

Call me crazy, but I don't see how this new SS is going to put out the same times as a ZL1 (even though that's effectively what GM is saying). ZL1 has 580HP vs 455HP of the new SS. Yeah, the SS is...

Interesting. So adding 30 HP and dropping a little over 200 lbs means an increase of like 0.8 seconds on the 1/4? Maybe the new tranny is working miracles or something. Those numbers seem almost...

You need better tires for sure. Back when I had just the blower, I was around 500 rwhp and I managed a 12 flat, and that was with lots of spinning (like almost going sideways spinning, LOL). That...

Yeah, j-pipes might be worth a shot. I hear you can just have them welded on. It's either that, or get a whole new exhaust.

The CAI Inc. version is built better, IMO. Fit and finish are excellent, and it looks great. I'd pay an extra $50 for that.

Thanks. I do have the j-pipes now, so I'm sure that helps some. It doesn't seem too bad, so I'll see how it goes. It's not like I'm driving the thing all the time, anyway.

Thanks, man. Did you notice any drone with your setup?

Mine definitely sounds a bit closer to the "old school" cars that I've heard at car shows. Kinda makes me want a classic Camaro!
