Smile 2011 Camaro 2SS from bone stock

Hi Guys

Been lurking for quite awhile and find this site quite imformative

I purchased a brand new 2SS in 2011 and have pretty much done absolutely nothing to it except maintenance.

Well on the bequest of my kids and and a newfound interest in my car I will let the modding begin

will first start with a cat back

then proceed to cosmetics (while I contemplate the route for power)

Away from home for a few weeks due to work, but will start uploading pics as I progress as well as an honest review of some of the parts I receive, the ordering has begun

Just wanted to start this thread to go from lurker to contributor

regards

Ron

Can't wait to see the progress, I bought a 2011 2SS about a month or so ago, I'm still looking for the exhaust that suits my fancy. I wish I could stick them all on the car and hear them in person to see which one I want.

Finally started

Ordered and received a few parts

Started working with

Side scoops. $75.00 from ebay
- Pretty good quality, had lots of flashing to sand off and a little spot putty work to do. About 45 minutes prep wirk per side. Fits good. Will be color. Atched summit white

Z28 rear spoiler look a like. 150.00 from ebay
- Excellent fit, made of fiberglass, edges were chipped and also required some spot putty work, came primed

GM HEAT EXTRACTOR. Local GM dealer 150.00
- Excellent quality. No prep work required other than sand and prime due to my choice to paint

Well got the iPhone to orient the pictures, took rotating the pic a minimum of a couple degrees and then re saving photo

next is to try and scale the pics down a bit as the size is too large

on a side note, still have quite a bit of painting to do when I get home again from work

side scoops = summit white
ZL1 rockers = summit white / carbon flash black
ZL1 diffuser = carbon flash black ( will be making this a hybrid as I prefer the 5" round tip as opposed to the zl1 quad tip set ups

front lip = carbon flash black

OH and before leaving for work, went to the local GM dealer and ordered a brand new LSA supercharger and a pile of support parts, they were very good on price and matched the best online prices I could find

Was 95% of the way buying a edelbrock 1598 supercharger kit from RDP store and was very happy to do so after talking to Steve, but in the last moments before purchasing too many things were going against me
1 Low Canadian dollar
2 edelbrock required me to solicit a broker before shipping
3 timeframe was slipping away for the 500.00 dollar rebate

all that being said it is much harder upgrading a car in Canada I believe than in the USA (COSTWISE)

Personal thanks to Steve for doing all the legwork that I really appreciated

will keep updating this thread as the body and engine mods continue
