That's right, make you enjoy the Camaro that much more when you get it back. Absence makes the heart grow fonder.

You will feel it, especially if you have it all done the same day. However, if you have never modded before then be aware that it can be addictive. After you do the intake exhaust and tune you will...

That doesn't make any sense. What happens when you install a cai is that you hopefully increase the volume and flow of air into the engine. As this additional flows the mass airflow sensor calculates...

Long tube Headers, CAI and Tune will get you around 35rwhp. A cam or supercharger is the next step based on your goals. Do you plan to track the car?

You will get about 20-25rwhp or so from a quality set of long tubes and high flow cats. Figure about another 10rwhp from optimizing the timing with a tune. That is typically what you get. Intake,...

The NPP exhaust option is probably what you should have added. For $895 you get a factory dual mode exhaust that sounds awesome. It also looks cool with the quad tips. No drone on the highway. You...

30 rwhp is too much for just a tune. They don't leave that much on the table. Realistically, you will get 10rwhp maybe 15rwhp with an aggressive tune on 93 octane. Cai is good for 10rwhp or so...
