Hello, just picked up my first Camaro.....first Chevy for that matter. I'm already
starting to get the "customize me" itch, and was wondering what you guys suggest on some first mods.


thanks

The best mod is always the one you have money for! Though i would say exhaust or cai.

Wouldn't go to far, lots of people here with mods complain about voiding their warranty.

Blacktip, CONGRATS, and Welcome to our happy little corner of the net, and to Camaro5. There is a BIG fridge on the back porch with anything you can think of in it...help yourself...of course only take what you can LEGALLY have. Make yourself at home on one of the big fluffy couches, kick your shoes off, put your feet up on one of the tables, yes we are allowed to do that, mom's and wive's here don't care....and take it easy.



oh...btw....every once in a while a food fight breaks out...so you may not want to wear nice clothes here.

Welcome!!

Exhaust

Welcome to the forum. This is the exhaust system I am looking at getting. I am looking at getting the cat back XL system. The more that buy the better the deal gets. No interior drone

The ones i mentioned don't void warranty. As long as the exhaust is a bolt on. CAI will not void warranty either.

Girlfriend delete. Some have been able to shave as much as 250 lbs with this effective mod. This is a performance mod, an appearance mod.....and SAVES you money. You then take the savings and get some of them there lambo doors and spinners. Nothing says american muscle like verticle doors and chrome colored plastic wheel inserts that rotate at a non-standard speed.

First mod should be to get rid of those trash cans you see poking out from underneath the back of your camaro.

I agree about the trash cans. I bought mine in January and I just got rid of the trash cans on Thursday and I installed the GMPP Touring Exhaust. I did the GM hurst shifter on Thursday with the GM Hurst shifter boot. I also did the GM subwoofer over the weekend! Can you tell I'm a GM guy? Oh yeah, I just did the premium Camaro floor mats yesterday, too.

Congratz nd welcome from Canada where your baby was born.

As for mods, asking this question on this site will keep you busy for days reading members opinions. So read out some threads and make your own.

As for me the first mods are EOM Splash Guards, $200.00 installed (Canada) does prevent paint chips and keeps you car cleaner longer.
