Question Next mod ideas

Whats a good next step to upgrade? I will be getting tints in my car soon, but afterwards I'm not too sure. I was looking at either a catch can or ghosted sidemarkers. Not sure which is better to do, and yes, i know one is purely aesthetic and the other is better for the engine. Any other recommendations?

Keep in mind my budget would be about $500, and even then it's pushing it

Sit down with a pencil and paper and decide where you want to go with your car, and then make a list of what mods you need to get there. Buying mods at random is like a woman in a shoe store.

Learned something new today... thanks for posting. I found this Catch Can online... as a LT1 V6 camaro driver is the Engine Type I want: LLT V6?

I am not sure what the LFX V6 refers to? [and yes I know that am still a noobie for probably asking this question ]

http://www.apex-speed.com/elite-engi...cc-300-v6.html

Thanks.

2010/2011 are LLT based V6 Engines.
2012/2013 are LFX based V6 Engines.

Both the Elite Engineering and RX Catch cans are great choices to choose from for either. Me personally, I love my RX Catch Can, couldn't be any happier with the results.

In the end, it's personal choice, both work great.

This is what i've been doing. Always put on paper, so you wont order something that conflicts other part you want.
