New 1LE owner from Texas

Good morning everyone. I am excited to say that I am back in the Camaro game! This past monday I purchased a 2014 Summit White 2SS 1LE M6 Camaro. I love everything about the car so far, except for the massive blind spots. This is my 3rd Camaro and my 4th LS powered car that I have owned. I plan on the mods starting within the next 30-60 days. My immediate goals are CAI and upgraded intake manifold, cam, headers and mid-pipes (probably Kooks), and debating on a catback or some QTP electric cutouts under the car. I need to read a little on the last part to get some opinions on what these cars like. I also want to do a few suspension mods to lower the car to get rid of the wheelwell gap. I look forward to meeting and talking with you, and gaining a lot of knowledge about my new ride. Thanks for having me! Chris

Good Morning!! Congratulations! Great color choice (my 1st Gen5 was white) but I like variety as well. You will get use to the blind spots . There is a lot of good people and info here. Enjoy, and Welcome.

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, wives', 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!!

Congrats on the new ride. Sounds like you have plans to build a pretty bad ass machine.

Dont waste your time with an intake manifold unless you bore/stroke the engine. Youll never outflow the stock manifold on stock cubes unless youre running a ridiculous twin turbo setup. One of the mods on here is over 1000whp on a stock intake manifold. Put that $1000 into suspension.

Interesting. Are there still gains by upgrading though?

5whp...maybe??? Some people actually lost power and went back to stock. I would say if youre hell bent on doing anything to the intake manifold, just have it ported. Save a lot of money for almost the exact flow of the 102.

Welcome! Also a Texan here, DFW area.

For the blind spots, just tilt the mirrors out a little bit further than normal.. had an insurance guy tell me that once. If you can see the side of your car, they are too close.. move them out farther and voila, blind spots gone!
