1LE tastefull mods

Well I was going to start purchasing all the parts for mods today as soon as I get an order number from my dealer. I want this car to be able to put back all parts to original whenever I want to and have the mods done correctly and be very clean .
MODS:

Clear bra front
20% window tint
Intake/exhaust/tune (which ones are TBD)
any recomendations?

I won't run mine hard without adding an oil cooler and probably will add more cooling to the transmission too.

I am new to the Camaro scene and not sure how hot the oil gets . I am sure some one has logged the temps. I will have to look into it thanks.

GM runs cars at the ring and does these 24hr track tests. When they say track ready I imagine your temps will be fine. But even the guy that bought an Enzo is told that some aftermarket parts are better than his stock ones.

None, the 1LE comes with both and it sounds like it survived plenty of GM testing so I will just give those a try until I get some track measurements (oil temps etc.) or unless somebody shares some oil temp data from track days showing that aftermarket oil cooler helps "significantly".

The only aftermarket accessory that I have already purchased (unlike Sukxost) are the nice Weathertech mats. Have been looking at the LED tail lights.

Cool. Looking foward to seeing how that looks. I love the ZL1 rockers, but I'm not sure how they'll look to me without the ZL1 rear facia. I haven't seen an aftermarket rear that I would buy and I wouldn't buy the ZL1 rear cause it would look too much like a ZL1 to me. If I added any type of body kit to a 1LE, it would be just the ZL1 rockers. Should turn out pretty nice.

Ha. I was about to post that picture. You're right , I was thinking that the concept had the ZL1 rear and the ZL1 rear spoiler but it's just the spoiler. Should look great. Still would like to see them with the stock SS spoiler.

The Mods I'm going to do:

15-20% Tint all around
Already ordered AAC AGM Ghosted Sidemarkers (Can Put stock back no problem)
AGM Painted Heritage Grill
Satin Black Bowties, Tail light bezels and Camaro Lettering
Looking into getting dsvcustoms Leather E-Brake and E-Brake Boot and possibly the full Leather Center Console with Alcantara stripes down the middle

We'll see what else comes

I'm glad I'm not the only one who is thinking about putting the ZL1 skirts on the 1LE and calling it good.

I'm of the mind set I'm going to make a poor mans ZL1... E-Force S/C and a few other mods.

dang that car looks hot. I am not gona make mine look like a ZL1 if I wanted a ZL1 I would have purchased one. I am sure there will be alot of ZL1 wanabe's and 1LE wanabe's making their look like something it is not and I am ok with it but it is just not my style. I will do a few mods like I have mentioned above and some power adder as the LS3 just responds so well to it and I will have a nice 1LE . I have always liked the sleeper look as it is so much fun to overachieve than to look like a ZL1 but perform like a stock 6cy which I call American rice.

CrystalRed you are pretty much spot on. Just add headers and maybe some springs to drop it an inch (maybe, got to evaluate in person) add a dyno tune and call it good.

I plan on ordering a white 1LE and the fisrt step of my plans will probably start with swapping my Pedders Xa coilovers from my SS and replacing the front bumper with the ZL1 bumper/grill. I plan on adding the 3d textured carbon fiber to the bowties. For performance I will start with an intake and TSP LT headers then tune. I'm on the fence for a cam install, if so I'm leaning toward something mild with a broad torque curve like the Vengance stage 2 cam.
