Really wish a company or company's would offer high performance cams and Hi flow heads. I remember my 300ZX. There were so many parts you could get for that 3.0 litre engine. Maybe one day

In time they will come out. If you think about it the car just came out speaking in relative time and they focus more on V8's but once they do everything for the V8's they do everything for the V6's

The 300ZX was a dog compared to the LFX. There was plenty of room to make improvements, I think it made 220HP? The Turbo made 300 hp, or 100 hp per litre?
Well with nearly 100 hp per litre, and even closer to that with simple and fairly cheap intake/exhaust mods, I would be curious how much more power a regular aspirated 3.6 motor can make. I bet not a lot without nitrous/turbo/superchargers.
Cams/heads are $$ especially with labor, at some point you have to calculate hp added per dollar spent. When you hit $100 or more, that is VERY pricey. I would guess exhaust and intake are around $30 per hp, and since they compliment any other mods, they make perfect sense as first mods. Ripping apart 25-35k cars engines under warranty is also iffy IMO. And turbos/nitrous are warranty busters for sure. Food for thought.

Colin, have you lost your drive to keep this updated? How about somewhat complete? There's a bunch of stuff you "could" add:

Catch cans

Short-throw shifters

Suspension upgrades from Pedders and Pfadt

Ported throttle body

Separate clutch reservoir kit

Just wondering.

There are a bunch of aftermarket brake and suspension upgrades, as well as over 100 wheels to choose from listed on The Tire Rack dot com website (and, no, I have no connection with them).

I would consider those to be performance upgrades as well.

I am sorry John I haven't "lost my drive" I just am very busy and I haven't had a chance to get on my computer (I can't do it from my iPhone or iPad) but tonight I will be home and I will get on my laptop and update it. Sorry for the delay

Wow - I wish I would have known about that green high performance filter - admittedly I would have bought that first considering the price.

I'm new to the forum and just bought my first 2012 black on black 1LT Camaro. Obviously its an LFX engine. Is there any news on headers for this bad boy? From what I can tell, they can't be changed. I'll be very sad if I can't change them ever!

No you literally cannot change the intake manifolds to headers on the LFX engine. I wouldn't be upset think of it this way with

Integrated Intake Manifold | Aftermarket Headers
_____________________|____________________
Free (comes with car). | costs $1000
8HP boost from previous. | adds about 10HP so your right where the LFX comes
year | stock
Requires no tune. | may require a tune depending on header

So LFX wins. Use that extra money for a Cold Air Inductions Cold Air Intake, RX Catch Can, a exhaust, and some cosmetic stuff
