What are we going to do with that big gap on the SS facia?

What are the current/future SS camaro owners going to do with the big gap on the front of the car? Leave it alone, cut a hole and make it a ram air style, put a scrolling light bar and make it like Kitt in the Knightrider series, or pray Chevy makes a new face for the SS. Just curious.

Leave it alone, although it might be nice if they offered an insert that made it look a little more functional. Or would it be worse to perpetuate the lie?

I'm going to stuff a midget in mine. . then when people come to look at the car, he will steal your wallet when you aren't looking.

Not to misdirect the thread but im wondering of people have plans for the lower grille, I seem to remember alot of complaining about how it looks. I would hope aftemarket like RK sport or the like, would come out with a bolt in insert like 99 SS had , any shoppers want to attempt a restyle it should just bolt in though not be a whole new fascia. Id like to see some ideas.

If you're talking about the mail slot, I talked to a tuner that said he going to have a CAI that will utilize that. Making it a functional opening.

Granted I don't know the rules with CAI but I always thought the intake pipe couldn't be directly exposed to the outdoors because of problems that could occur in heavy rain.....

Whats the deal here?

Need a tuner to answer that. All I know is he is a top SEMA tuner. If he wants he can chime in. His Camaro will be on the SEMA tour.

Ummm ... that might be kinda tough as I believe the hood latch is directly behind that "mail slot"

And as for the "rain in the air intake" comment, its usually not a big deal. Alot of vehicles pick up fresh air from outside. A few rain drops dont hurt anything. A considerable amount of water soaking the air filter and getting through to the MAF can make a difference but still, not life altering.
