Help Needed!

I've had my 2012 6.2L L99 Camaro from new and I think it's about time I start upgrading it.

What I would like to know is what you guys would recommend
Starting with first, all help will be greatly appreciated.

I know this is a lame answer...but its fact. Depends on what you want. Most will start with a cai. Many of us go with cai, headers and a tune.....really wakes the car up. Read around the site...see what other have done....and the mistakes they have made. Start slow and work your way up. Don't impulse buy or do it just because everyone else says so. You have to decide what will work for you. Good luck.

There's tons of threads on this subject. It depends on what kind of mods you're talking about (performance, visual, etc) and what kind of money you're willing to spend.

This is generally the way people go about modding their vehicles started with the very first mod they normally get. I would definitely start with the top 3 first which is why I put them in that order.

1.) CAI
2.) Cat-back exhaust
3.) Catch can
4.) Headers
5.) Suspension mods
5.) Ported throttle body/underdrive pulley combo
6.) Visual mods

The previous posts are correct to decide what you want from your car. I would suggest looking for people in your area and talk to them. If you can find another L99 for your exhaust you will want to listen to it before purchase. I made the mistake of installing an exhaust that I later took off and changed out. Also if you have a local shop they can help steer you towards your goals.
