New photos (finally): In November, I added the ZL1 grill and painted all of the front end trim pieces gloss black. In January, I upgraded to meatier tires, too (Nitto 555: 265/50 front, 295/45 rear).

Thanks! The Camaro is slowly coming together... The tires are a nice improvement both appearance wise and in driving.

These tires feel like a big improvement over the BFGoodrich's. I can take corners better, don't spin the tires as easily, drive better in the rain, and noticed much less road noise. Plus I think they look better.

My new years resolution was to not buy any mods this year... as with all resolutions, it didn't last; I made it to March 18th, and ordered a set of BBK headers and a tune (and they arrived on my doorstep today).



Stay tuned (no pun intended), Sophia/MARZ will be getting a bigger growl very soon...

Hope you put money aside for a resonated x-pipe in case the rasp kills you


Don't know how you made a resolution like that.... Something like that would drive me insane after seeing all the wonderful things I could buy

I've been in BossBunny's Camaro (with this exact set up) a few times. Didn't notice/mind any rasp. If it does bother me, ApexChase has them for a good price.

Lol, I have a lot of school related expenses I have to account for this year (graduation, licensing exams, interview travels, etc.). So I gotta play it safe with mods.

Will that help? I deleted my resonators... And I now have A LOT of rasp unless the pipes are HOT

It'll help with rasp and deepen the tone somewhat, but it'll also quiet down your exhaust a little (which is why I'd like to avoid it).

Wednesday afternoon/evening I installed my headers. The end result is definitely worth the work involved!

Thanks! I'm impressed by the Trifecta transmission tune. Shifts are firm and I'm chirping tires in 2nd and 3rd.

I'm working on designing a custom emblem for the ZL1 grill right now. Hopefully it's not too pricey so I can get it soon.

And I'll FINALLY order a catch can. It's beyond me why I haven't done so already.

Car sounds great. I was wondering if anyone had a BBK MRT V2 combo on here. For some reason there aren't many videos of it. How is the rasp and drone with the resonator delete? When I get around to doing my headers I will be replacing the 2.25 pipes for 2.5
