That was my first thought...warranty. You may want to consider the LS3 head and LS7 cam kit. 40 hp boost, and you can do the long tubes later. I have the part # from the perfomance catalog. 19300535

So if you add these specific mods they won't void the powertrain warranty?

Maybe if dealer installed, otherwise it would definitely void the warranty

Catch can for sure but if you're into track performance you could do a set of coilovers

I think the ZL1 diffuser looks great but I don't think there's any aerodynamic function compared to the side rockers and spoiler.

I'm installing the rockers and diffuser partly because of the protection they give. Have you ever seen a camaro with a few miles on it with rock chips on the rockers and quarter panel near the fake vents, and right behind the rear tires on the facia? The ZL1 stuff provides great protection. I hate chips!!! Also installing the Pheonix Gold radio enhancement kit specifically designed for the Camaro. I can get any of you a great deal if interested.

The more I think about it, the more I see a set of LTs with the diablo intune tuner and a CAI. this warranty may be short lived...

Now that you said that you are in Hawaii, I would spend that $2k to go up and down the volcano on Maui..... It's been 6 years since my drive there with a manual Miata Speed Turbo, convertible. Yeah, yeah, it was the most fun I could rent for a day for a decent amount. Everytime I burn out or feel down, I watch the video I recorded driving up and down....... next time I go, Convertible C7 baby, don't care how much money it is.

Oh, $2k will get you any Ferrari for a full day, unlimited miles. Drive to Hanna and up and down the volcano?!?!?!?! Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooh yeah.

The 1LE doesn't need mods anyhow for street driving in Hawaii, it is plenty of car.

Right, I was told if performed by the dealer it's covered. They also must tune after installation. I intend to go this route in the future.

So after much thought, I am going to stick to cosmetics and a few "safety" items for now.

Rx catch can
Clutch reservoir relocation kit
No drill front plate bracket
CAGS eliminator
Heritage grill
Still debating ZL1 side skirts (only because shipping to Hawaii is horrendous)
Black lug nuts
Window tint
CAI (not sure of the brand yet and haven't seen much difference between the top brands)

Also considering some lettering and vinyl blackout type parts. We'll see what the next few weeks brings to mind. And yes, the mod bug has bitten me... HARD! Right on the wallet.

To make matters worse, I have to leave town on the 9th and my car hits the island on the 10th. I won't get back till the 19th. Kind of sucks for me.

Just think of all the fun stuff you get to do when you get back
