Camaro mod opinions?

So I'm going to be doing work to my 2011 camaro rs. I want opinions on these things.
Exhaust- magnaflow resonated x pipe with muffler delete
Cold air intake- http://www.protuninglab.com/20chca3v6lsl1.html
New hood- http://www.carid.com/2011-chevy-cama...-43148151.html
Any suspension suggestions that are reletively cheap?
Any more horsepower upgrades fairly inexpensive?
Any inexpensive cool body mods?
Please let me know what yall think! Also what is the importance of a new oil catch can first? What is wrong with the original? Thank you!

Please avoid cheap air intakes. look on ebay or the forums for a CAI ( Cold Air Inductions kit ) or something of that nature. way better and lifetime warranties.

AVOD AVOID AVOID ALL duraflex products. They have have por fitment from the old cars to new ones and require massive body working before you actually get it painted or put on.

Lowering your car will get a good center of gravity and increase cornering. Getting good tires ( Nitto Motivos, Eagle F1, or others close to it ) will give you good grip 20" Wheels )

Get a new spoiler. z28 replica or others are good from phastek. avoid cheapos.

Catchcan is a serious must. im 58k without one and im scared as hell what it looks like. i plan to order one as soon as i sell another amplifier. It seperatse the PCV system to allow clean air back into the intake and not oil. due to our Direct injection our valves NEVER get cleaned by fuel from the injectors like a port injection motor.

it is your Friend

How many miles on your LLT? I'm sure Elite will chime in shortly.

If you're considering a CAI, please take a few minutes to read some reviews on the Roto-fab system. We see a 12-15 HP increase on the 3.6L cars. We also have some great customization options and customer service second to none! If you have any CAI related questions, please let me know.

Below is a picture of the Roto-fab system with a red air box, black hoses, and oiled filter


Thanks for your consideration,
Michael

The exhaust setup should be perfect. That has been universally agreed upon as the best budget option for the LTs.

Hi all, I'm new here. I've got a 2011 V6 LS and am planning to begin a series of upgrades but I don't have enough money for it all at once, so I would like your opinions on what would be the best first upgrade. Here are the performance parts I want:

All new intake and exhaust from CAI to headers, cats and exhaust. What would get me the most? (although I understand that there won't be much from any one part alone but rather all together).

1. Should I start with exhaust first? I'm considering either a cat-back or axle-back MRT 2 but is it worth getting the cat-back or just axle-back? If I get an axle-back, can I add mid-pipes from the cats to axle later?

2. Or should I start with a CAI first? And which ones are worth it?

I figure the headers and Cats will come after the first two or should I start with those? Should I get just the axle back plus CAI which adds up to about the same as getting a cat-back by itself? I'm going crazy trying to decide.

One last thing, how difficult is it to swap out the exhaust on my own? I'm new at adding mods although I do my own oil changes, spark plugs, fuel filter change, headlamps etc... I'd love to have the experience and satisfaction of doing it personally. The car has 93,000 miles on it and is stock so will the bolts and fasteners need to be replaced while I'm at it? And if so, does anyone have the part numbers for the needed parts from GM?

Thanks everyone!
