Sawyer's 2011 2SS/RS Camaro build

I am back with some new updates on my Camaro build.

Just a refresh of what I have done to the car so far from stock.

- Cold Air Inductions black
- ADM race scoop
- Diablosport tune (for now)
- 20% Tint (Pro Tint)
- SLP black gills
- Rx catch can
- General G-Max tires
- Corsa cat-back
- Sparks SS trunk emblem


Please check in and let me know what you think.

Yes, I bought it used with 4,500 miles. I guess someone traded it in. No mods were done to it and that is what I was looking for.

Nice to see you fixed your link =) I would of got the 2SS if I had the chance again, but that's ok I'm having fun putting all those items in my car now!

Jeez you're already started on the dyno! Had the car a week lol

Subscribed... mine is a slow build as well. Saving up for all my performance parts and will put them on once I get a new Daily Driver. May get a couple next month if I'm lucky =)
