Camaro SS 2014 CAI Question

Hello all. I am new to this website and thought I create an account last night so if I were to ever have any questions I could ask you all. I am 23 and I just bought my 14 SS about 8 months ago and I love it. Recently, I installed a K&N CAI on there and I love it so far. The only question I have on this subject is the crank case hose it came with the CAI. I want to make sure this is correct. The instructions say on the 2014 and later camaros you have to cut the original crank case vent hose and connect the one you got with the CAI to the trimmed part of the original. Is this correct? One more question as well... What mods can I purchase to were it won't mess with my warranty? Thank you for your help.

Nice car, looks a lot like mine.

How do you feel about the throttle response with the K&N vs the stock intake during normal driving? In my experience (on other vehicles), adding an intake only adds improvements during WOT (full throttle), and can kind of screw up the linear power delivery when accelerating slowly. Mind giving me a quick impression of your K&N on an otherwise stock Camaro?

Looks fine to me, but you may want to add a clamp to that line.

I'd look in the VMAX ported throttle bodies and an elite Engineering catch can as your next mods. Feel free to call, PM or email me if you have any questions.

Congrats on the SS and welcome to the site!

Best regards,

Tyler

Sixspeeder... I really do like this particular CAI. You can def hear it when you gun it to atleast 4 rpm. Other then that you can't really hear it when you are cruising. I knew that was going to happen though. That is when the exhaust system comes into place but not right now :/ anyways, to answer your question there is a difference. I do feel some power. My goal is to get it up to 500 to 550 horses. JDP... What type of clamps?

Just a simple hose clamp should work, something like this http://www.mainbrew.com/ProdImages/hoseclamp.jpg . Just to make sure it doesn't vibrate loose or pressure blow it off.

Do you guys recommend long tube headers or shorty headers? Not sure if either even voids my warranty. Just thought I ask when the time comes around.

You're going to want LT headers, but pretty sure headers void a warranty, don't know about the entire warranty though.

Yeah that is what i am afraid of. I would have at least a diablo tuner added if it wasn't for that. Has anyone seen this spoiler on the camaro yet( Duraflex GT Concept Rear Wing?? Can not seem to find much info about it or who has one. I'm very interested

or this one…Duraflex stingray z look? I am asking because if I am going to pay 400 bucks for the GM Z28 high spoiler then why not take a peak at these other ones. If you can, please enlighten me on this. Much appreciated

It does not void your entire warranty, in fact it doesn't void any warranty unless the headers contributed to a premature parts failure.

Just be careful, if you have any powertrain related issues you better throw the stock tune back on because we can and(if the advisor and/or manager is in a pissy mood) will void your warranty. Just be careful.

i was in your same doubt when i got my ss. if you want to buy a serious programmer, you could contact Jannetty and get a sct x4 from him. he is rally serious and professional an i got an awesome change after his tune. i'm really happy. also the sct x4 is a very amazing tool...it's like a very expensive diagnostic tool(as i have where i work)
i am not saying Jannetty is better than the other one,but he did an awesome job on my car

Man that looks legit! Idk why I never thought about putting the z28 intake in mine. Looks very nice. How did you disconnect the regular hose though? I could not figure it out at all. I twisted and turned and nothing. How many horses did that programmer give you? How much did you throw down as well? I don't know if you know this but do you know of a site that I could purchase a z28 spoilers and put it on my ss 2014? I seen some on eBay but those are like 400 and another person on eBay that sells a lot of them but he is only selling it for 200 plus painting. I asked why his are so much cheaper then what Chevrolet sells them for and what are his made out of.. This is his response"Our spoilers are made of abs substrate, same as the factory. The dimensions are the same and the paint quality is top notch. Dealers across the country use our spoilers. You will be happy with it"
Sincerely,
Kevin @High Gear Auto Performance
What so you think about that answer? I'm still curious on why his are 200 and Chevrolet is 400 plus.

2nd ^^ listen to this man. Catch Can, and ported TB. Get them both.
(neither will hurt your warranty.)
Apex, or Elite catch cans. Vmax or Bo White TB.

3rd once you've been reading a lot and have an idea the direction you'd like to take your car, then start planning what mods you want. A little planning on the front end can save you money two ways: 1. if you do mods together instead of separately you could save in labor and tuning costs. 2. it could potentially keep you from having to re-do some mods if you decide to take your car in a different direction.

There are a lot of us in the Houston area that will happily share our knowledge and help you decide what you're looking for. We also have some top notch vendors/ shops. If you look at my sig, that'll get you close to your HP goals. Just know, that if you plan on doing mods, be prepared to void your warranty.

oh and 4th, when you're ready for some black ZL1 wheels to make your white on black car look even better, PM me and I'll make you a killer deal on an almost brand new set.

Here's a vendor for OEM Chevy ZL1 and Z/28 spoilers as well as the Wicker Bills.
http://www.shopchevyparts.com/camaro...2770_3060.html

Yes they're $400, but remember when looking at aftermarket fiberglass parts that you need to be mindful of their rigidity and fitment. Also how well do they take paint, etc. If you're going to buy an aftermarket hood or spoiler try to find people on here who have them already and ask what they think of them. OEM parts you know will fit correctly and will hold up.

(I'm not knocking the spoilers you have above; I know nothing about them. These are just questions you need to ask when considering upgrades.)

Taco, I appreciate you taking your time and sending all this to me. Like i said, If i have to go expensive then I will. I don't have a problem with that. I just want the right stuff for my car. I just saw your post on your new exhaust system… very nice! Congrats on that. Next time I sell a home out in Houston…the commission will be going towards a new exhaust system. Now about those rims you were telling me about. Im very interested in what you have. I have been looking for some rims as well but particular ones like the forgestar F14 in matte black.

I sent you a PM bud. There's lots of nice wheels out there. Also lots of nice exhaust options. But you'll do exhaust next, then something else, then something else.... It's not gonna end!
