Free $2k for mods

Long story short, I have a 1LE coming and I underestimated how much I would save. I filled out my loan papers and now have a check for $2k over the price of my car. I already expected the payment but I could save ~$40/month if I get a new check for the actual car price. But there is no fun in that! If you had a new 1LE coming and $2k, what would you buy?

My planned mod list goes as follows...
Heritage grill
Grill area blackout
LTs
Tuner (i have someone to tune via email)
CAI
ZL1 side skirts
Possibly a ZL1 diffuser
RX catch can
Small subwoofer upgrade (nothing too crazy)

That's about it. The really long term list is a Vortec SC and cam with supporting mods, but that is really long term. Thoughts?

Congrats on the purchase.

I will say, the rockers should have came with this car. The Dusk/ZL1/HW come with it, why not the 1LE. It was even on the Concept 1LE. I plan on getting the rockers sometime in the very near future. I'll be doing the tint, sub install and minor things first.

I'd skip all the exterior and audio mods except for the ZL1 side skirts. What do you mean by ZL1 splitter?

Ha! I meant rear diffuser!

I am apprehensive about the LTs and tune right away because I would like to keep the warranty for a little while...

your ending up financing your mods over the length of your loan, this isn't normally a good idea, do the math and see what it really costs you. I don't understand how you can apply this money to mods either. loans checks are normally made out to the dealer as the lender will have a lien on your title

Premium LT's will set you back about 1500 and a good cai about 4 bills. Then you'll need a tune, which as you know will void your warranty, but I'm sure you're ok with that. you could go with some JBA headers - $700, ZL1 rockers - $310, Heritage Grill - $350, Rotofab cai - $350-450 and enough left over for a remote tune.

I'd go with exterior/interior mods then.

Some stickers give you 25 to 35 horsepower.

Make sure you buy gap insurance if your financing more than the Camaro is worth...just in case...
