My 2011 Camaro SS Transformers Edition

So about a month ago I purchased a 2011 Camaro SS transformers edition. The car only had 4,500 miles on it and the guy had already put on a few interior modifications such as the head rests, center console, and transformers door still plates.

I recently changed out the hood cover, added a CAI cold air intake, and got this customized hoodliner by Corrado, I also changed out the rim caps to the autobots ones:

Next I plan to:

- Have interior trim painted yellow
- Add in Yellow SS2 Interior Trim Kit
- Change Cloth Seats To Camaro Leather Seat Kit, Black w Sunrise Wings
- Exhaust
- Maybe have a trunk liner painted...

I'm sorry to burst your bubble but actual Transformer editions were only made in 2010 and 2012, not 2011. Looks like the previous owner bought 2SS headrests (cause they're leather and your seats are cloth) from GM parts with a transformer vin #. Also the door sills and center console.

Sorry i have to agree with this. Also to add to the fact a TF edition was only available as either a 2LT or 2SS. So the seats would have to be leather. And i have to say why put a K&N Sticker on a car without a K&N intake In fact it has a much nicer intake than a K&N

I do have to say that the car does look awesome

Agreed. That is NOT a Transformers Edition, if anything it's a clone. It's still a great car, though.

Yep, I did know it was a clone. I do plan to address the seats issue, so they are leather just like the head rests, already added the center caps to the rims with the autobots logo.

You guys are also right about the K&N. Apparently the guy had a K&N air filter in the standard air intake before I added the CAI cold air intake, I need to get that sticker removed.

I'll keep the mods coming.

So here we are and it's spring time again so it's time for my baby to come out of the garage. I decided the next thing to work on is the stereo system. Although I have XM I hate not being able to listen to my own music, I hate not having hands free bluetooth, etc.. so I just ordered the following:

- Pioneer AVIC-7000NEX
- Scosche GM5201AB (I was told this was better then the Metra 99-3010)
- 2 x JL Audio 12W6v3-D4
- 1 x JL Audio HD1200/1
- 1 x Subthump box yellow with grey trim to hold the two subs.

Most of the parts will be here next week, not sure how long it takes subthump to make a box, but damn if I am not getting excited!!

Got subs, amp, and head unit installed

Ok almost finished with the install.

Pioneer NEX 7000, 2 x JL Audio 12w6 subs, JL Audio HD 1200 amp. The only thing is I'm having some problems getting the side trim for the subthump box installed, working on that today. And apparently I need a different adapter for my Galaxy S4 to work with MirrorLink (this lets you display your phone on the deck) over all it's pretty sweet.

Waiting on some parts from Showstopper accessories, but man I really want a Corvette Stingray C7. Not that I don't love my Camaro especially with everything I have done to it, but those C7s are dope.

If anyone has a C7 2LT or 3LT Z51 let me know and I'll trade you

I love your interior trim man! Like others said, not a true Transformers edition, but I'm glad you knew upfront. Looking good!

Engine Bay Finished?

So I think I am done with the engine bay and the cosmetic mods for now, next I will start working on the performance mods!!

Anyway here are some pics of the engine bay with the new covers for the ABS Controller, Master Cylinder Cover, and Battery Post Cover.

What do you think?
