First Camaro!!

Picked up my first Camaro about 2weeks ago. Brand new 2014 SS Black on Black.

I plan on putting a lot into this bad boy but below are my items ive just ordered.

Stainless Power 1- 7/8" Headers w/ High flow cats (from Apex Motorsports)
Catch Can (Apex Motorsports)
Hurst Short Throw Shifter (Apex Motorsports)
CAI Intake System
VMAX Ported Throttle-body (Tampa Tunning)
DRL Bulbs (Apex Motorsports)
Diode Dynamics - Trunk, License Plate, and dome lights. (Thanks to my man Matt "Spartan01")

My next two items will be a Borla Atak Catback, and a set of cutouts!

Im up for any suggestions on other things you think i should add? I am also looking at engine dress up options but trying to figure out what I want is driving me insane!

Wow, awesome choice of car and upgrades. You may want to consider getting the steel bushings for the Hurst Shifter. I just had them installed (after two years of using the nylon bushings), and it makes a big difference.
