Great build so far! Hood insert looks great. As far as exhaust I can't speak for the ones you have but I have the MRT v2 with an LS3 midpipe and I think it sounds great, although the midpipe didn't really change the exhaust note much. I would def look into the MRT v2. I don't have too many great vids of how it sounds but here are two.

About a month ago I installed CAI cold air intake. Thanks OHIO SPEED (Jim) vendor on this site for a great price and fast shipping. I ordered silver/aluminum color air box and tube. And painted them AGM color. And the clamps I painted orange. As you can see, I'm adding ashen grey matallic color parts to my car, and trying to find the balance between IOM and AGM. I liked the orange color when I bought the car, but I think that adding another color it gives more character and more aggressiveness. I painted myself in the garage. It wasn't to difficult, so I'm planning on painting my engine cover and fuse box lid. I bought the paint at http://www.automotivetouchup.com
Originally I planned that my next mod will be RS headlights. But I like so much that deeper tone ("growll) CAI gives when I press the accelerator, that I changed my mind, and will upgrade my exhaust next. Let's make that v6 a little more aggressive and give it more muscle car sound.

At the time i had my stripes installed, I didn't have my spoiler. But I had a stripe for the spoiler when I ordered ZL1 stripe kit. So I got my spoiler stripe installed recently and also did rear bumper blackout. Used the same matching matte black vinyl.

Finally, after watching hundreds youtube clips and reading hundreds reviews, bought new exhaust. I chose Gibson performance axle-back exhaust. Bought it on ebay for 363$. I think that's a good price. Got it installed at Speed inc, in Schaumburg. Thanks for a great job guys
You guys should have seen the smile on my face the first time i started my camaro with new exhaust I have it for a month now, and absolutely love it ! Now I feel that I'm driving a muscle car
That deep rumbling is like music to my ears

Some photos of the latest upgrades: stillen/street scene side skirts and front splitter. Bought these parts from a vendor Team STILLEN here. Thanks for a good price. Got it painted at All Auto Body inc (elk grove village, il). Side skirts painted IOM to match the car and splitter painted AGM to give more aggressive look. Still thinking about buying stillen lower grille ducts. Just not sure if it would look good with my front license plate on. What do you guys think?

I was looking for a new watch lately, to match with my camaro. I found that Fossil and TAG Heuer makes watches with camaro name/logo, but didn't like any of those. And then I found this beauty (Triwa havana nevil orange) and immediately bought it. I know this is camaro build journal, but I consider this watch as an accessory to my car so I'll post it here.

I'm back!!!
Haven't done any upgrades for a while, mostly because tried to pay off the car as quickly as possible.
So this time I did some sound proofing to my camaro. As we know Camaro has absolutely no unibody insulation from the factory. And I already have my exhaust upgraded. So I thought, that would be nice to reduce the outside noise to the car. I bought 36 Square feet Dynamat xtreme and installed in my trunk

I installed Dynamat in the trunk few months ago, but couldn't really tell a difference while driving. So I bought some sound deadening Raammat from www.raamaudio.com . I liked the way this product looked more than dynomat. And now I can tell that it works better than dynamat also. It has two layers of peal and stick sheets. I installed the Raammat under rear seat and under door panels. And this time I can feel the difference and am happy with quieter interior.
Next I'm planning on removing front license plate. Just have to think of something to cover those ugly holes. Some plugs or something.

Just installed new license plate frame from RPI Designs. Painted AGM as the rest of my accessories. Originally was planning to paint the screws AGM also. Went to autozone to buy new ones, because mine there rusty, and found some black ones, and bought them. Too lazy to paint them , you barely can see the difference.

Also today installed vmax ported throttle body, which I got from Phil (Tampa Tuning). Thanks for fast shipping. It took 15 minutes to install. Exactly as everyone were saying. Have noticed just slight difference. But drove only a few miles. Maybe my expectations were too high
