just ordered lth and cai...

Hey all, I just purchased a set of stainless works lth w/ hfc's, cai inc cold air intake (with scoop and washer fluid relocate), and a hurst short shift kit (6m). I will probably wait until all the parts are in and install them all at once. Does anyone have this same set up and can give me any feedback as to what to expect? I looked into the parts before buying and they all seem to have favorable reviews. My Camaro is a 2012 2SS RS and and im hoping that this will really wake the car up. I want a tune in the future but am not interested in voiding my whole warranty yet. And the headers are the chinese made version. Dont flame me for that but I needed to stay within my budget. I also looked at obx headers but had some in the past for a different vehicle and they were absolute crap. They didnt seal right no matter what I did so in the end I just didnt feel comfortable giving them another try. Thanks for reading.

I'm sure you will like the setup. I personally don't have it but others on here have either or of the ones listed and have given good feedback on them after reading posts.

Expect the car to really wake up and sound a hell of a lot better.

You do need to do the tune to really get the full potential. Not a must but really recommended.

If I had it to do over I would have painted the scoop black... a little too noticeable for me.

The install of the bottle is a bit akward especially if you get ahead of the instructions.

I really like the performance results and the new sounds... and well the look speaks for itself.

Get ready to love your car all over again. Expect gas mileage to decrease. Mine went from an average of 19-20 to 16-17.... due to the unexpected weight gain in my right foot .

Damn right, it's hard to drive slow and short shift when the car sounds so good! It really was a 2-3 mpg decrease. I bet I've hit WOT at least daily since mods. You'll LOVE it.

hmmm the scoop looked black in the picture when i ordered it. thats alright though. i have some black paint i can shoot it with and let it dry while i install the headers. im glad there is so much room to work with under the hood. my 370Z's motor seemed like they needed a giant shoehorn just to get it in the engine bay. im guessing the install on the headers will only take bout an hour and 1/2 tops. plenty of time to let the scoop dry and add another coat if needed.

I never thought about painting the scoop but I see what you are saying. My car is black so I really think it will stick out. I will probably do the same thing. Thanks for the hint
