I will say that I don't think your "someone in the know" actually knows about the LS3. I can tell you 100% without a doubt that headers and a CAI will NOT require new injectors. All you need to do is surf the V8 sub forum. Every other thread asks about headers and a tune.

An intake does not require a tune but that doesn't mean a tune wouldn't help. Same with headers....it's technically not required but you will have CEL come on and your air/fuel mixture won't be optimized.

You can always go with a set of SOLO or JBA high flow cats instead of headers for now. Those don't require a tune but you'll only get about 20 rwhp vs about 30-35 rwhp with headers.

My best advice is for you to do more research. You probably need to start looking around in the V8 section. These questions get asked constantly.
I read through there quite a bit. I know the advantages of each mod but it's a new car to me with new brands and this will be my highest HP car to date to own I'm just looking for all the variables. "Someone" at SLP said given my car being a DD and I'm not concerned with being the fastest car around....to maintain warranty and not incur additional costs(injectors/tuning/dyno time-might as well do headers then) that I should just start with just the SC; new intake pipe that comes with it; the "canned" tune. He stated that these Camaros seem to be needing bigger injectors and tuning for efficiency reasons and will need tuning and both the SC and car warranties go bye bye. <Paraphrasing (unless I purchase an additional warranty)
Like I said, I'm just kind of thinking out loud and curious what people thought. this 1LE WILL react differently to the TVS on there with that generic tune though. HOPEFULLY better! :P It's why I didnt start another whole thread there and just added it into my current thread here.
I appreciate your comments man, that's what I'm looking for.

First off....let me just tell you that you can pretty much guarantee that GM is not going to warranty your drivetrain if you slap a charger on it. Now, you might be able to buy some kind of a warranty from SLP if you buy their charger but don't expect that you could take it to any GM dealer to get drivetrain warranty stuff done. You might call around to some local dealers and ask them if you were to put a charger on the car would GM still warranty motor or transmission issues. My guess is they'll say no.

Maybe with supercharger you might have to add bigger injectors. I don't plan on going SC so I haven't done alot of research about them.

On a 1LE that already has gears....I would consider LT headers and a tune. I did mine with about 3,500 miles on my car. Yes, my drivetrain warranty is probably gone but (knock on wood) with 2.5 years and 12k miles I've never had to really use it. I did have a CV boot leak and the dealer thought about denying me because of my coilovers but replaced it anyway.

I haven't felt the shifter in the ZL1 or a 1LE but if they are anything like the SS I would spend the money and swap out the shifter. Personally I'm a fan of MGW. I had the Hurst for about a week and then swapped it for the MGW. To me the OEM shifter feels horrible in my hand and I missed a couple 2nd - 3rd gear shifts with it. I've never missed since I've had an aftermarket shifter.

Otherwise, unless you want big power from a Supercharger or the sound of a cam....I wouldn't change much. Maybe some cradle bushing inserts but you will already have the gears, suspension, and wheels. For the most part you should be good to go IMO.

BTW: Do research and see if you can find a really good peformance shop in your area that can dyno tune your car when the time comes. If you can't find a highly reputable shop then look at get a mail order tune from Jannetty Racing. The tune is a big thing. Since you will be basically loosing your drivetrain warranty with it, you'll want to make sure you go with someone that has plenty of exprience on the 5th Gen.

I'm gonna weigh out exactly what I want out of this car and if I want to keep the warranty or not(I've never cared about the warranty before so why change now?) HA It's a "new" vehicle trim with a ton of new mods so I'm hesitant until I see what issues the car has/doesnt have.

I'm Army and in 9-12 months I'll be at a new duty station. I've very curious to see where I'll be going. We are TRYING to get to Hawaii but that would suck with this car. Little ass island with a blown 1LE. HA GERMANY again would be nice! :P

Yeah, I had my 520i BMW up to 167. I miss those roads. Coming back to the USA after you're used to setting your cruise control at 130 was tough!
