Even if not, you can still "Like" us on Facebook and post some pictures for our weekly contest, I am sure our followers would enjoy checking out your Camaro! Great job on all of the customizations and take care!
haha, Thanks Bill, Ive heard only great things about CAI Inc. and I was about to buy one actually until i decided to add t2 ports. But, since I decided to add the ports to my front bumper I thought my longtube Injen CAI would be the best way to go only because the cone sites right behind the left port. But, Ill like you guys on facebook for sure, and every car show i go to I see your CAIs on almost every new camaro. You guys do an amazing job, keep up the great work.

Always dug the T2 ports. Followed your build with much interest.

Decided to jump in. No regrets at all. Thanks man.

Are you ever going to put in fog lights? I did the dual HID projectors in mine.

With grills and without.

Thank you, and I bought synergy green paint in a spray paint can (3 of them) from automotivetouchup.com.

So i sanded down the model, primed it, painted it with the green, then clear coated it. All with spray paint cans. No special equipment at all. And i forget the model size, but its about a foot long, its pretty big.

Can't wait to see this in person. I'd been thinking about straight pipes on mine too but I wanna hear em first. The hood pins have really grown on me too! They are functional right?

Thanks man. They were $80 and the cable part can attach anywhere under the hood u want. I just used 2 tiny screws into a tab on the inside of the bumper. and the metal plate part just sticks on the hood.

I was going to get real hoodpins that were $80 as well and drill thru the hood, but i figured since they are just for looks why go thru all of that when they will look the exact same, and the OEM hoodlatch wont fail anyways

I gotcha. I dunno how they'd look on my car. I already had a phantom grille I was watching on eBay too. Haha I'd feel like a copycat if I got it now.

Every mod on here is a copy from someone elses nearly. Thats how u get ideas. When some one asks me about a mod or "copies" it, I feel honored and happy they like it that much.

Sweet. Great outlook! Cause I plan on giving those pins a try haha. You've got a lot of cosmetic stuff that I think is awesome once I'm done with my performance I might get into the cosmetic aspect of mine some more. As of right now for cosmetic all I've gots powder coated wheels and a bunch of vinyl and plasti dip. 350$ total lol. But damn did it do wonders IMO.



You plan on upping the performance of yours or no? Dunno if I would if I had a sick bike. Cause it still wouldn't be as fun as the bike.

Ya man your car is going to be killer with that supercharger. I cant wait to see that and hear it.

And, yes im going to do a lot more performance mods once my warranty is up. I have a injen longtube CAI right now and with the t2 ports I can feel quite a difference but thats still pretty small of a HP increase., but I eventually want to get twin turbos. Just need that warranty to run its course. Thats why ive been so focused on cosmetic mods.

Gotcha. Mines already at 70,000 and I got a deal I couldn't pass up so I went for it. Can't wait to see that with twins though! Tracy at Rx Performance does one hell of a job boosting these things if you aren't decided on where you eventually wanna go. Also how do you like those straight pipes?
