Did you get the dual mode exhaust? Personally, I would keep the '1LE' diffuser but get the ZL1 trunk spoiler with the side rockers. I would basically go for this look:



Other than that, I would get a good catch can and call it a day. The 1LE is already kickass as-is. Maybe a dryflow air filter replacement as well. At least drive the car first!

I would get a nice helmet, $300, some nice racing shoes, $100, some neck protection, $600, a CG lock or harness bar with harnesses, $600, get a set of track pads as back up, $500, racing brake fluid Castrol SRF, $80, buy a clutch reservoir with bracket from JDP motorsports, $80, get a tran skip shift eliminator, $30, black out the turn signals and reverse light from phastekperformance.com, $60, buy a oil catch can, $200

....and you are at around $2000 (if you get harness bar, get hans device, if no harness bar, get the body strap one, hybrid).

Now you are fully ready to go and enjoy that bad car of yours.

Only problem with that, no tracks in Hawaii... And I have several helmets already. But I like your train of thought. As a motorcycle enthusiast who enjoys track days more than street time, I would love to hit the track.

I got the NPP but I still like the look of the more aggressive diffuser. And that is somewhat the look I had in mind. Just not changing the spoiler.

I'd change all the bulbs to LEDs, install the drl harness, depending upon where you live, get another set of wheels and tires for bad weather? Upgrade exhaust, and maybe get it tuned.

I could see myself doing that. I do in my truck sometimes. Nothing like the music played by eight cylinders.

That was my first thought...warranty. You may want to consider the LS3 head and LS7 cam kit. 40 hp boost, and you can do the long tubes later. I have the part # from the perfomance catalog. 19300535

So if you add these specific mods they won't void the powertrain warranty?

Maybe if dealer installed, otherwise it would definitely void the warranty

Catch can for sure but if you're into track performance you could do a set of coilovers

I think the ZL1 diffuser looks great but I don't think there's any aerodynamic function compared to the side rockers and spoiler.

I'm installing the rockers and diffuser partly because of the protection they give. Have you ever seen a camaro with a few miles on it with rock chips on the rockers and quarter panel near the fake vents, and right behind the rear tires on the facia? The ZL1 stuff provides great protection. I hate chips!!! Also installing the Pheonix Gold radio enhancement kit specifically designed for the Camaro. I can get any of you a great deal if interested.

The more I think about it, the more I see a set of LTs with the diablo intune tuner and a CAI. this warranty may be short lived...
