Arrow WARPSPEED: Warp12LS3's F/I Build [COTW 3/18/13]

How she sits as of today (4/5/14):





2012 Camaro 2SS/RS 6 Speed LS3
Ordered: 03/02/2012
Delivered: 04/20/2012






Alright guys here's my work in progress. Her name is Sylvia. I was on the fence for quite a while between the Camaro and the a '13 5.0 Mustang. After months and months of watching comparison videos, reading reviews, and racking my brain by going back and forth between Mustang, Camaro, Mustang, Camaro, when it was time to purchase I was leaning SLIGHTLY towards the Mustang....until I went to the dealership. In a 2 week span I went to the Ford dealership 3 times and not a single person lifted a finger to help me...I even went inside and nothing!! Well 3 strikes and your out. On the 3rd visit I left and went straight to Chevy where I was immediately greeted and helped. Needless to say within a few hours the paper work was done and my Camaro was ordered. So thank you Ford for making my decision so clear cut and easy. I love my SS!!!

Here's where she started

Day 1
Picked her up and drove her straight from the dealership to my brothers house where we installed the MGW shifter, Magnaflow catback, and Elite Engineering catch can, along with tinting the taillights/side markers and blacking out the bow ties....9 miles on the clock

Added the GFX ground effects. Had to cut off the 5" Magnaflow tips



I didn't like how the exhaust was recessed so far back behind the bumper so I threw some mesh in the exhaust bezels as a temporary fix until I ordered the MBRP tips

Niche Apex 20x10.5, 275/315 vred. Mike and Jon at BestWheelDeals was a pleasure to work with. These wheels fit perfect, they come right out to the fender. I couldn't ask for a better fit!

Great Build!

How do you like the GM-X ground effects? Did it require and sanding or prep before paint?
And im guessing it installs like the GM one. Sorry for all the questions lol

Thanks man, I love it! Completely changed the look of the car. I bought it already painted from GMPartshouse so yes it installs just like the GM kit bc it is. Very high quality and the fit and finish is excellent

Oh and the only prep was cleaning the areas on the bumpers with alcohol to make sure the 3M tape adheres properly.
