Here is the thing about mods as has been pointed out. They do not add any value to your car. Not one penny. (usually) So knowing that, do not add any mod you cannot undo. When you go to sell your car take off all your mods and resell the parts. You can get $.50 to a dollar or more. Doing that cuts your costs in half. Doing the most popular mods with the most popular parts helps even more.

Mod smart. Have fun.

Personally speaking, I'm not much of an innovator on mods. I'm more of a "purist" and try to keep all mods from being "permanent" so that if I choose, I can go back all stock. For example, I just ordered a catback. But I'm keeping the stock exhaust just in case. Nothing on the car so far has been done that can't be undone.

That said, I get something out of Camaro forums and the people. Very creative ideas and folks with huge sacks (or ovaries as the case may be) to go and use their car as a starting point for making their dream car. And hopefully, that gives me ideas as well. I've spent a few bucks I probably never would have had I not seen others do first. I don't want an exact copy of someone's cars, but the ideas don't hurt when you can actually see the results.

I got some really great deals on some of my mods. But because
my wife lurks these pages sometimes I can't tell you all I've done
or how much they cost me. Or about how much the transmission &
TQ upgrades I ordered are going to be.

I got those mostly from other threads and compiled them onto one thread... if you read the entire thread you will see posts from vendors with time updated deals from time to time.
Oh I am WELL beyond the beginning stages!! Thanks tho I have already checked it out...

I have never modded a car before this one except for a simple amp and sub or drop in K&N filter. I realize I won't get any of this money back, but I plan on keeping it for quite some time. I have never taken ownership in a car like I have this one. Blacked out bowties, aac p13w's, blue footwell lights, blue led trunk and doom lights, roto-fab CAI, CNC ported throttle body, solo high flow cats, 21" black rims, 15% tint, sub and amp, gfx, painted engine cover with flames, and last but not least a big smile!

I just got my car about 3 weeks ago and I'm already starting to order stuff. I think this thread just cost me some money though, lol. I have the IOM with the IOM interior and I've been thinking about ordering those black SLP wheels. Can you post or send me some pics of your car so I can see what it would look like? I have white stripes and all, too.
