Welcome to another modded dusk.
Why did you take off the npp? Sounds way better than anything aftermarket and proved to be one of the few that do make hp. Rather than just noise.
With LTs they sound even better than corsa and can still be turned to quiet.

if your talking about CAI been using K&N for many years with great success put their cold air intake in my new denali truck, with same exact motor; and in the numerous mustangs have owned love the sound, may no net as much hp as other intakes but easy to maintain for me, and like the newer kits especially in my denali. really prefer kooks like the sound and really put out the best performance in my past setups. Not for sure may go 3.73 or 3.91 rear end gears since its a 6 speed, rather take it to track and run it first to see.

CONGRATS on your ride and Welcome to our happy little corner of the net, and to Camaro5. There is a BIG fridge on the back porch with anything you can think of in it...help yourself...of course only take what you can LEGALLY have. Make yourself at home on one of the big fluffy couches, kick your shoes off, put your feet up on one of the tables, yes we are allowed to do that, mom's, dad's, wive's, husband's, girlfriend's and boyfriend's here don't care....and take it easy.



oh...btw....every once in a while a food fight breaks out...so you may not want to wear nice clothes here.

Welcome!!

You put a K&N CAI on a Camaro?...
You should have done some research.
they are one of the WORST ones on the Camaro flat out..

There is some required reading here that shows all the test results of the Camaro CAIs. the K&N was very very low.
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=107002


And I was actually talking about the cat back you said you replaced.
The NPP is the factory dual mode exhaust which is the same they put on the ZL1 and the 13 2SS M6 cars.

Good luck, before modding any more I'd suggest reading a lot in here to get the best bang for your bucks.

I see what your saying but like K&N and prefer to use it on all my vehicles, and using them for years I didn't replace the catback its the factory upgraded dual exhaust not even sure if its even a full catback setup that's why I was asking. only other exhaust planning to do is long tubes which will net me good results as well, and maybe cam and reworked intake and heads in the future.

Yeh youll like the catback thats on there.
sounds mean with the fuse pulled until you go LTs.

Id seriuously look into ADM, CAI Inc, Rotofab for your CAI especially if you can return yours.

They all use the K&N style reusable filter but the rest of it is what sets them apart.

good luck man!
