Going to Let C5 Choose

So I have about $600 for some mods. I am torn and don't know what to do next...

I have an all black 2013 LS. Black tinted out windows, 20" black foose legends, rear emblem delete, plasti dipped front emblems, tail light bezels, "camaro" on fender, and smoked tail lights, side markers and revers lights. No performance mods yet. Had the car a month.

Place your vote -

A. Night Shades NS1 stripe kit - $375

B. CAI cold air intake - $360-$399

C. MRT v.2 Exhaust - $500

D. Ported TB - $150

E. Elite Engineering Catch Can - $179

F. Heritage Grill - $220

Catch can without a doubt. It's the only one you NEED. The rest are just nice to have.

Catch can eliminates alot of the oil build up in your upper and lower intakes, but honestly people on here give it way to much credit, these cars were built to run the way they were made, not saying catch can's dont have a use, but people on here make it sound like your car will explode if you dont get one asap..

That is not true at all. but for the money you might as well throw one on, it helps for sure. my honest opinion, get option B & D, try and get a used Cold air inductions intake for like 250-275$ish, then you can afford B, D and E.

Just looking on classifieds on here for CAI used? Also, the TB has the extra $200 deposit so it is really $350 out of pocket, then $200 back when you return your original TB.

No one is liking the exterior mods huh

im a huge exterior mod fan bud, i did all my exterior before performance, and i still dont have a catch can in mine, but im to the point to where im adding one, and porting the upper intake... do what you want for your car, if you want it to look better, focus on that, and when i got my throttle body ported i sent it to them and they ported mine so i didnt have to do the core thing... but it did take a week or so.. but it was winter so it didnt matter.

I have been told by several performance shops that ported throttle dosnt really do much. Why dont you save up for some new gearing or a tune??

Well sort of true. GM is now starting to add them. The 1LE has them direct from factory.

If you want exterior mod do the Heritage grille, my car looks much better IMO with it. Other than that, elite catch can then CAI intake
