Just asking this to see everyone's opinions. What's the cheapest way to add on horsepower to my 2011 Camaro SS?

I suppose that would depend on how much HP you want. Cold air intake is the easiest way of getting 15hp give or take.

That depends on your budget and how much horsepower you want.

Nitrous is by far the cheapest, but not the route many want to go. IMO I would say headers and CAI. I would not call headers cheap depending on the brand, but there are some affordable brands out there to give you the same results. Keep in mind with headers and some CAI's, you open the door to requiring a tune also. I guess at that point it all depends on what you consider a cheap mod.

Sorry Bud: Go cheap/Go home!

We know where you are going.....subsidizing the economy in China is just not the goal

Remove the spare tire and any additional weight. You can do that for free!
