1lt Upgrades

For my birthday three months ago my parents were amazing and got me a beautiful V6 camaro. They trust me with the car because I learned to drive on my moms v8 Jaguar xf supercharged. Now since i have my own car i was wondering what cold air intake is the best for a 2012 v6 1lt 3.6l and then what turbo system is good
universal t3/t4 t04e turbo kit.....saw this for 600 dollars thought it would be good?
Any advice would be great

CAI? Cold Air Inductions w/ Apex scoop, in my opinion.
Turbo? I have no idea

Look up either a CAI intake or a Roto-fab intake.

A turbo kit for 600 dollars? Add another zero the end and now you're close to what you'll be paying for a turbo kit.

Please do not ever buy a $600 universal turbo kit You will destroy your car the same day you install it.

If you will go turbo soon then dont worry about a CAI cause it wont be used. If I were you, barring a turbo wont be for a maybe a year or so, do some suspension stuff, a new TB, maybe a new exhaust catback, and a ported IM. Black ice would be a good add on as well.

He has a 2012, there are no ported IM's for them. And the black ice won't work with his either

Congrats on the car. Not much performance parts yet for the LFX but they are coming around. Some from the LLT are usable head over to the LFX section like in the link above.
