LFX forum

This was stated before and was shot down, but these LFX guys need a sub forum.

The intake system and output system (headers) is entirely differnt and they need to be able to speak directly to those who have that set up.

Different engines and they can learn from the V6 guys here as a total, but they have an entirely different set of mods comming down the pike and they shouldn't have those new mods forums dilluted by LLT mod forums. It will make things easier for everyone and wouldn't be hard to do for the v6 community.

If you disagree I would be curious what is similar here as this is bolt on section. I know intake, tune and headers aren't the same and that is a huge part of the forum

I'll agree with this. I don't have an LFX but it makes perfect sense.

Someone should pm a mod so that they can create it. Or post it in the forum feedback section!

I agree with this. 2012-ers are coming in asking for advice on their new ride and other posters often do not notice that the model in question is in fact a 12 and then proceed to give erroneous advice or suggestions. This is a GREAT idea. Thank you Oolie.

While it seems like a great idea in theory, in practice it completely sucks for the LFX guys. I'm on another forum that's specific to 5th gen v6s and they separated LLT and LFX. I hardly ever visit the site because I know nothing is being posted in the LFX section. There's hardly anything developed for the LFX, so having our own forum would just mean we'd have a ghost town all to ourselves and people would just resort to posting in the general area to get their threads answered.

On said forum, here's the difference between the LLT and LFX sections:

External Tech:
LLT - 137 topics with 2900 posts
LFX - 2 topics with 11 posts

Internal Tech:
LLT - 15 topics with 211 posts
LFX - 2 topics with 23 posts

While there IS erroneous information given between LLT and LFX, the case study to show that having a separate LFX forum wouldn't fix it is look at all the threads posted here in the v6 forum that have people with an SS coming in and posting the wrong information. That annoys me more since this is clearly a v6 section and then you get some guy with an SS giving wrong info.

Sadly, unless people specifically state in their post what car and engine they have, it's going to happen with the different engines and models.

I think you misunderstand, your car is new and therefor will be less posts as there aren't as many sold to date as the 2010-11 cars.

I was not meaning to put you on another planet, just concetrate your posts on bolt ons so you can work together to find out what is best for your cars as you have different mods and results.

Most of us here can give general information for the LFX, you guys really deserve to get a close network among your fellow LFX bretheren.

I think you would find that in time you would need less of a filter going through forums if you had a designated forum for your engine. I posted this because if I had just bought a 2012 camaro I would be frustrated with all the threads that didn't apply to me and would always be trying to find a thread that was useful. My thought was maybe you would have less volume early on for this forum, but it would be quality in the sense it would pertain to 2012 car at least.

LFX is the future for camaro and it will grow, it just takes some time to get the numbers. I would imagine the early 2010 guys would probably agree.

I agree. We definitely need one. I bought the Vararam intake just to be told by KMPrenger that it wouldn't work with my 2012. I'm grateful for him because I wouldn't have known otherwise. Now I can cancel my order before it ships and not have to deal with sending it back.
