MEET THE G8RH8R

I'm Mack,
I'm from Maryland suburb of Washington D.C. and I drive a Black 2010 SS/RS. I received my Camaro in October of 2009 and after 3 years (and less than 12,000 miles) still love driving it as much as I did the first day I got it! Up 'til this point, I've made no mods to it, but spending time on this site has convinced me that I need to do so. So... next week I'm installing a K&N Typhoon CAI and a Borla "S" type catback exhaust system.

I ordered the exhaust system and CAI, and they'll be installed Monday or Tuesday; can't wait to hear the new exhaust. Also, yesterday I ordered the JDP color changing Halo kit (Thanks Jeremy!) I'll post some pics when I get that installed. Still trying to decide what color rally stripes to have painted on; I'm considering gold with a garnet pinstripe to stay with the whole FSU color scheme although I'm open to suggestions and would love to get your opinions!

Oh man you have opened Pandora's box now! Once you start there's NO end to modding! One thing's for sure, no matter what you want to do there's plenty of help here! Go for it and enjoy!

So... first mods are complete. Got my car back from the shop today. K&N Typhoon Cold Air Intake and Borla Type "S" Catback Exhaust are installed. I'm not too sure if the exhaust is as loud as I'd like it to be, thinking maybe I should have gone with the ATAK. Sucks to second guess yourself! here's a link to a really poor quality video of the exhaust sound.

Sounds good. S-type is kind of quite with stock manifolds and cats. Put LT's and hi-flo cat's on and it wakes up real nice.

Hi Everyone, it's been a while since I've been on this site. I recently completed some mods I thought I'd share with you, so check out the photos at http://youtu.be/AYeZLpxZu84 Here's the run down:
Ft. Bowtie delete, painted DRL bezels body color, JDP color shift halos, custom painted crystal red tintcoat rally stripes, side and rear nameplates/emblems removed, TSW matte black 20' wheels, carbon fiber "SS" sill plate moldings, tinted taillamps, painted taillamp bezels body color, blacked out rear bowtie
