Any interior, that is where you spend your time It is also the weakest part of the car...

Very interesting. I wanted to see how you all would respond. Most of you said performance mods which doesn't surprise me. Very few interior and exterior mods. Very consistent responses and I will make a list of essentials. Thanks for responses so far.

Catch Can whether it be Elite or RX. I have mine installed, but haven't gotten to really use it since its a garage queen in the winter.

Got my SS 2 weeks ago and here's the way my list has started by priority. .

Flowmaster exhaust
H&N cold air intake
Heritage grill
Door mouldings

Think that's a good start on from there probably rims and body kit.

There's really no essential mod. But if you want to start you have to decide wether you want show, go or practical mods. Here's my opinion on the most essential mods.*

Show:
Bowties! Get rid of them or change up the color! Now!
Decals. Not essential but they set your car apart from the rest.*

Go:
Cold Air Intake. Adds some untapped power
Catch can*
Axle back. Doesn't add much go but sounds a lot better when your going

Practical:
Dome lights. They're very bright and helpful
Microfiber cloths. Keep them in the trunk.*

WHAT ARE CAT BACKS FOR THE EXAUST

I'm new to this. Bought the car for the wife for X-Mas, I'm gone all the time on the road so decided to sign her up on this forum so she can look for answers if she needs to. I haven't been into muscle cars since the 80s and not sure of the terms being used. She will not be hot roding it just driving normally, but would like for it to sound good not loud just mean sounding. Thanks!

Essential mods???

Here is what I did and it may be a safety feature as well. At night on really dark and winding roads, it is hard for drivers to see the Camaro well ahead with just the reflectors on the rear lights. The images show the mods that I made on my car for added visibility. What do you think?
