Ghost Cam Tune With Current Exhaust

I'm thinking of getting the Trifecta tune which includes the ghost cam. I have muffler delete straightpipe with stainless steel replaced there. Also a magnaflow x pipe. Any idea how it would sound?

There are no videos of 2014+ Camaro v6's with the ghost cam tune.

My car already has a deeper tone to it and has a loud startup so wondering what to expect with that added onto it.

You dont want a "ghost cam". Not good for the engine...

Why is it not good for the engine? Everyone says that but does not give logical and reasonable proof.

From the factory this is completely opposite, they lessen the overlap to create a smooth idle. American muscle actually started this ghost cam with the mustangs but they discontinued ever since ford showed interest in buying the rights to ghost cam."

So still didn't hear actual proof. Think of it in a business perspective, if it really is bad for your engine then this company selling it will have a major backlash and affect the companies business and reputation but i have not heard about anything bad yet.

OP, i say go for the "ghost cam", just make sure you do some of the other ricer add ons, such as transformer badges, 22s, some glow lights and maybe some lambo doors.

You will be set!

I own 2 Cars, 1 2LT RS Camaro and a Mustang GT.

OoOoO man Ooo a v8

Yeah man if you don't drive a v8 you are 100% a loser and don't know shit about cars.

I can do whatever, I probably make 3x what you make in a year in a month. So honestly, your opinion is laughable to me.

I'm not a simple-minded loser like you that thinks adding mods to YOUR car to make it sound better FOR YOU is rice.

Oh yeah majority of the muscle cars get smoked by european, japense cars everybody knows that.

So please lets not act like that riced out honda civic won't walk ur BIG 6.2L v8 engine. Because you know, you must know a lot... because the engine is the only thing that determines a performance car right?

I hope you actually own a Camaro or some sort of car because your background picture is a google image....

Unbelievably laughable probably like your income

Ofcourse it worked, you down-talked someone on the forums for their own opinion and choice and then play victim. That's not cool dude, i'm just looking for advice and adv/disadv about this product not for someone to make fun of me.

Easy killer! No one here is playing victim, other than you. Better start growing some thicker skin.

Not sure why you went on a "v6 vs v8" rant. Not one time was anything mentioned in regards to that.

Not sure why you felt the need to bring up that you own some other vehicle. No one asked for that information.

Not sure why you said "I can do whatever", you sure can, I even encouraged it.

Not sure why you felt the need to assume that you make 3x, what I make in a year, in a month.

Not sure why you felt the need to ascertain on my intelligence.

Not sure why you felt the need to state that muscle cars get smoked by european and japanese cars. "Everybody knows that".

Not sure why you felt the need to assume that I implied that "an engine is the only thing that determines a performance car".

Sounds like insecurity issues to me.

Looking at your previous threads and comments, I can understand why.

Hope it gets better meng!
