SOCHRISB's SS

I decided to make a journal of my 2012 Camaro 2SS/RS. I purchased the car in August 2014.

I kept the car mostly for the first few months. I purchased the Range AFM device, Cold Air Inductions intake, CFD shifter, and Pypes catback exhaust. The car was a world of difference. As winter approached, I wanted more power. One of my best friend's owns a shop in my hometown. Through conversation with him; I decided to get purchase a supercharger from SLP. I elected to keep the SLP canned tune and put my stock airbox back on. After a month, I contacted Cold Air Inductions and ordered the extended elbow for the SLP blower. Upon arrival I got it tuned and re-dynoed. Since then, I have blacked out the emblems and wheels.

2/8 - I installed my headers, plugs and wires. Car was tuned on 2/8 by New Era and dyno'd 490whp and 488wtq.

Modifications:
SLP TVS 2300 Supercharger
Cold Air Inductions Intake
Stainless Power headers with cat delete
MSD Wires
NGK TR6 plugs
New Era Performance Tune
Pypes Catback Exhaust
CFD Shifter
Blacked out emblems and markers
Plastidipped rims

Future Modifications:
LS3 conversion
Blower Cam
Suspension
Cowl Hood

Below are some pictures of the car.

Since winter has yet to hit western NY, I decided to install my headers, plugs and wires. I went with Stainless Power, no cats, MSD wires and NGK TR6 plugs.

I got the car tuned yesterday. New Era Performance is top notch. Mike, the owner and tuner, is very knowledgeable and great to talk with. I would highly recommend them to anyone in the northeast
