Mods up to date:
-OEM black stripes (originally thought about getting painted gloss, but ended up liking the look of matte black)

-blacked out sidemarkers (bought 5% tint at auto zone and just put the tint over and cut with an exacto)
-custom painted bowties (flat black with SIM middle)
-LED DRLs
-Adaptive Performance DRL Harness
-AACstyle interior LED conversion kit (white)
-AACstyle license plate LEDs
-MGW shifter know
-chrome turn signal bulbs to give a clear look

-Camaro SS black license plate frame

Possible future mods:
-Tints
-Side vent decals from RPI Designs (most likely the ABS black plastic)
-AAcstyle ABL footwell lighting
-MGW short throw shifter
-Exhaust, not sure which one yet
-Intake, most likely roto-fab or halltech
-Silver door and dash panels

question. what does a GMPP catback exaust do? improve power or sound or both? and how much do they usually cost with installation?? just wonder, because I may be considering that upgrade but I am not that car upgrade savvy as many ppl on here are.

Any exhaust (cat-back or full) will upgrade both sound and power.

go to www.gmaccessories.net, pick a dealer and pull up the Camaro and it will show you prices including installation.

Cat-backs on the C6 vettes did nothing for power only sound. The camaro stock exhaust could be more restrictive. I would have to wait till somebody did a comparison on a dyno. My thoughts for now is just do a cam with headers, electric cutouts with stock mufflers. Headers w/hiflow cats and deleting the resonators should increase the sound.

I dont blame him on that. My son is 17. He will be riding around in a 12 year old pickup till he learns how to respect horsepower.

  • Interior trim kit (silver)
  • Door sill decals
Every thing in mind is good for you plan but IMO if you are getting an LS3 that is the wrong cover and the mud gaurds i am not too sure about i would have to see them installed first none the less the perfect engine covers would have to be the original LS3 Corvette look it really looks amazing and really choice..........

At first i really did not want to get the molded splash guards but I am going t be driving it a lot, so I don't want it to get scratches or get dirty or something.
