I added Cold Air Inductions intake, Thorley shorties and Flowmaster American Thunder Cat-Back exhaust. Quicker, more torque, sounds insane, gas mileage is about the same in town but better on the freeway if I don't go heavy right foot. Plus when I lift the hood it looks clean.

Moving air efficiently into and out of your engine is the foundation of building more power. Your engine is basically just a big air pump. Adding a good intake and cat back package will make somewhere in the neighborhood of 15-20 hp.

From what I've learned here, the stock exhaust is free flowing enough and the only real benefit is from the headers. Whereas on a truck straight pipes add a bit to the top end, with a little loss in the low end. Just isn't the same with the 5th gen Camaro, apparently.

Catback = more sound but little or no HP gains. A good CAI can help the RWHP.
