Newb

New to the forum, new to camaros also. I suppose the biggest reason I joined is because I'm looking to make modifications on my limited budget. And maybe someone can help me with this... my car is a 2011 1LT, but it has the front end of the SS. Is this something that you can order straight from the factory or is it something someone did to it? I bought it with 8k miles, so i'm obviously not the original owner. And if any one has simple performance mods that can be done relatively cheap, let me know. Thanks, and I look forward to reading what you guys have to say.

Welcome to the family of Camaro owners. I have had three Camaros. My latest Camaro is a 2010 Victory Red 2LT/RS. I was not aware that you could get an SS front end in an LT, but there it is in the picture I am looking at. The mods I have done are Ingen CAI (about $250 - $300), JBA Shorty Headers ($900 - $1000 installed) and Axle-back performance exhaust ($750 - $900) depending on manufacturer. The increase in performance is really good and the sound is amazing for a V6. People who hear the car do not believe that a V6 can sound that good.
I am sure you will get a lot of replies. Good luck with your new Camaro.

someone must of changed out your front end because you can't order them like that. look into getting a Cold air Intake and a new exhaust just to start you off... then you'll be bitten by the modification bug... good luck trying to stop putting stuff on your Camaro!!! LOL

thanks for stopping in everybody. I didn't think the front end was stock or ordered from the manufacturer, but couldn't be for sure.

Looks like that one is just for the SS V8?

Congrats & welcome! You will find all the info you want here & too much too because the mod bug is addictive & incurable. Like others have said a good cold air intake & exhaust are a good place to start. There is a ton of info on here about that. Trt the V6 bolt-ons thread. Apex Chase is great to work with & helped this newby sort through all the info & decide what was right for me and great prices too. Go to my page & you can see pics of my mods. There is a good quality video of my exhaust too. PM me if you want me to send you the link. I love my setup, but you need to figure out what you want. See ya around the forum.
