New owner

Just bought my first Camaro. 2015 SS convertible. What a great car. I'm getting a lot of great ideas from those on this site. I'm thinking a CAI for an upgrade. I'd like a little extra in the sound dept., but not over do it. Thanks to all who post here.

Go for it! Get a CAI brand, it will wake that engine up! Plus add about 10 horses. Do you have the NPP exhaust? Those two in tandem really sound fantastic. Can't wait for my warranty to be up so I can put headers on the Green Flash.

Happy motoring!!!

Congrats on your purchase. As my salesman said when I picked up my vert, "This car will change your life."

And so it has.

You may find my build thread of interest, especially exhaust mods looking for power and throttle response and not too many decibels for the vert. These are standard bolt-on mods, well proven by many C5 members before me. The great thing was, as a complete novice in this area, I was able to study and make accurate decisions on mods due to the open and honest feedback from members and vendors. Good luck in your pursuit of perfecting your gorgeous SS vert.

Welcome to the club. Muffler delete sounds perfect on the convertible. I was afraid it would be too loud, but it sounds really nice. There is a slight drone when AFM kicks in, but using the paddle shifters I eliminate that situation.

Looks awesome! I recommend the CAI its high quality and looks great too! Muffler delete is a great way to improve the sound. If you have an L99 then you will want to get ride of the AFM as it will sound terrible with the muffler delete, you can stop AFM (4 cly mode) with a Range OBD plug in module. Enjoy it!

Nice ride and welcome.

Don't think anyone mentioned the CAI will actually make it sound a little nicer right away when on the throttle. The AFM is annoying and sounds terrible, would recommend getting that removed ASAP as well.

Solo catback if it's an L99, Axleback or Catback if it's a LS3. Sounds awesome for the budget minded. I did the Vararam intake because i like how the air goes directly through and into the throttle body with no bends. It looks nice too being centered and all. Total for both was $1K.

I did the Solo Performance cat-back system with the J pipes. It was 900.00 shipping was free. Its a bolt on kit. Easy to install if you can get under your car. I love how its designed to be loud outside the car and quieter inside my very. I was concerned because I wanted to still hear the radio or passenger. Solo also designed these pipes so there is no drone. For the price I was very impressed. There are also videos you can watch to see how they are made and how they are superior to brands that charge 1500.00.
