Caglezxj 2011 Camro II SS

8-13-11 Purchased new.

2011 Camaro II SS . White with Black Racing Stripes.

8-20-11

Got windows tinted at Xtreme Tint in Madison, AL. I went with the Crystaline 3M tint. It is new tint that blocks out 98% IR Heat. It isn't cheap though. It is more than double the regular tint but comes with a lifetime warranty. This tint actually repels heat and also redirects sunlight. I had them put 40% all the way around including the front windshield. 40% in this tint is like 20% in the metal style tint that's illegal. It's all in how it redirects the light cause the tint is layered. So enough about tint, lol .

Brought it home and installed headers, x pipe and mufflers. A co-worker traded his camaro in and removed this setup so I purchased it from him at half the price. It is the Edelbrock Shorty Headers, Factory Cats still on, Then Flowmaster pipes all the way back with flowmaster 40's and stainless tips. This system really woke it up. Not screaming loud but a deep tone. Finished it up around 10:00 tonight and can't wait to play with it tomorrow.

So now my future plans is to install a cold air intake. Which I need some help picking out the best system. Possibly going to get the lowering springs. I also like the painted badges, so I think I have seen most people say they get RPI. I will be searching for this stuff tonight.

Anyone got some good mods I need to do quick to make things better let me know. Do I need to have some place do a tune after the exhaust changes?

Pictures tomorrow after I detail it.
