KSX IOM 2010 Camaro 2SS/RS

Hey guys! So a little about myself. I bought my first Camaro last year and was extremely excited about it, at the time I had bought a 2012 Camaro LS brand new! Had a ton of problems with the dealership, they had re-painted the car due to lot damage and needless to say the paint was already bubbling one month after they finished it !

All in all after talking to the dealership I ended up getting a 2010 Camaro IOM 2SS/RS LS3 M6!

This is my first build thread ever so it's gonna be a long process in the making I'll update some pictures as soon as I can upload them onto my computer!

- K&N Cold Air Intake
- Borla ATAK Catback Exhaust
- Heritage Grill De-Badged

Just finished the exhaust and got a video on Youtube for it feel free to take a look! http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=HK_bq72nyO0

My old LS and the new SS! Much happier.. Yellow SS is the girlfriends!

Ahh always good to see another person from Rochester! Yeah, today is the only night I need it for praying it doesn't snow in the next 3 hours so I can get it back home.. Gonna bring the other car into the shop. I looked at headers for a while now, just not sure if I want to make the car THAT loud since I have an ATAK Catback..
