ok so here goes, i bought the car off the lot IOM 2ss non rs
wanted the rs package and they said they cant upgrade to that package(wireing issuse)
i added the red to the ss badges before i knew what it ment (matches car better)

i also tinted the rear lights (I need to go darker) and reverse lights

it has all the other upgrades already from the factory on it.
except for door molding (might change it might not) it matches my orange and black theme.
and am going to get the aftermarket halos and projections for it and then it will be an RS (by heart)
is that wrong?

Mine is an imposter. I';m ashamed to admit it, but it's certainly not as loud as a stock camaro SS. I dont have the SS on the back, but I placed a small SS on the front grill and used a V8 front bumper. The mail slot just looks cool!

Looking like an SS is one thing, actually having SS badges on when you are not is something else.

Yes I have SS badging but I donít go around telling everyone I have a V8.
When asked I tell everyone itís a V6, I might want it to look like one but thatís as far as it goes.
Believe it or not most people donít even know what the V8 looks like under the hood.

The real badge is under the hood boys and it doesnít have a 3m backing.

Soon to be running with RS badging, it looks just as good.

I do not have an impostor: I am legit

I have the limited edition code(CTH) Transformer 2SS non-RS LS3 (M6)

But I do want to change my front to the T2 or T3 bumper, if I can't afford the up-coming HP/Z28 when the price is finally released.

Waiting on a V6 specific Turbo set-up so I can put these on my car, otherwise it would be a poser and I really can`t bring myself to do that. A LS/LT made to look like a SS is an embarrassment waiting to happen.

You can do it but you will need the connectors off the RS harness and you will have to do a little wiring.
Low beam will work no problem but to have hi beam work you will need to wire a switch to turn them on, like I did.
RS lights will cost ruffle $1,000 unless you know someone like I do.
Ruffle youíre looking at about $1,100 if you do it yourself or more if you have someone do it.

I was gonna make my car an "Imposter", but I decided to put the Lingenfelter badges on the car in order to be honest!

Took off my SS badge on the back hoping to trick people into thinking I'm a V6 so I can get more action at red lights.

Hasn't worked so far.

I think my 315s in the back give it away...
