New member, 2010 LS buyer

Hey all,
Just joined the family as of last weekend. Got an LS IBM 6 speed manual with stripes and 21" wheels and 6000 miles. When I was younger I owned an 86 navy blue Camaro with a 6 cyl and a 5 speed. I let a friend borrow it and he rear ended a Camry. Needless to say I won't be doing that again. Debating on whether I should start modding or leave it stock through warranty.

Make it your own. I started modding mine before it had 2k miles. BTW those wheels look like the stock SS 20". Nice car buddy. I have a blue one to.

I'd recommend an aftermarket exhaust.

They could be the 20", but I thought I saw 21 on the Pirelli's themselves. All I know is the salesman tried to talk them up saying they were 4k wheels.

What gains will I get from the GM exhaust, especially if I don't put a CAI or headers on?

From what I have read, not much if anything at all. I read that the stock mufflers are not very restrictive.

So adding the exhaust would just give your car a good, aggressive sound. I was embarrassed to rev my engine while I had the stock cans on.

From what i remember if you go with the GM performance exhaust it is not much of a gain in hp but it will sound different, but it is over priced the best to to go after market you can get a cat back for the price of their axle back.

I just joined today also I have a 2011 Gray RS. Mine has 3,500 miles and I already put full borla exhaust and a K&N intake on mine. Looking into the BBK headers, LED taillights, and billet grilles as we speak. Let the MODS begin make it your own. This site has tons of info on it I read through it for months before joining. I've spent hours on this thing.

You can do a lot with visual mods, or mods like intake and exhaust, that will keep the majority of your warranty intact.

For me, this is the "most car" I've ever owned, so my desire to get even more out of it isn't there yet, but that doesn't mean I haven't done visual or other small things here and there.

I agree! I went to an exhaust shop and had my catback exhaust put on before I took the car home.

If he was selling you 4k wheels you better go back and get the 21" Gm wheels, cause those are 600-1k 20" stock wheels, people can barely get rid of those.

Welcome and congrats. The mods will start then take on a life all their own! As to axelback exhuasts about 4-5 hp tops and better sound. the gains are mainly in the low to mid range where you need them. up to 13 hp in the 5500 rpm area alot of times.

Welcome to the happy world of Camaro ownership. IBM is a sharp color, but I may be slightly biased. My LS is also IBM.

I said the salesman claimed they were 4k wheels. He didn't say anything about size and I pretty much just disregarded his statement. He was trying to sell the value of the car for the price. Basically I had already set in my head that I was ok with the price of the car as is.

I didn't get scammed. The wheels were not part of the negotiation. I would have bought the car for that price with the heritage steels on it, for all I cared.
