Catback, Cold air intake, catch can..I went with a roto fab intake, elite catch can, and settled for a muffler delete. No it will not void your warranty.

Small, but effective mod list:

Roto-Fab Intake, Muffler Delete, Elite Catch Can, APEX washer relocation and scoop, VMAX throttle body, and a JacFab license plate bracket.

Welcome Bruno! My first mod was exhaust cut-outs and is still probably my favorite mod. I much prefer the cut-outs rather than putting catbacks on. If you are not buying the Camaro new you may want to consider a professional tune, it made a big difference in my SS. Strut brace isn't just a pretty mod but it actually makes a difference in the cars handling.

As Pluto mentioned a CAI is a "must buy". I wanted something different than what everyone else had so I bought a G5CR CAI and have had zero problems and haven't thrown any engine codes. I haven't seen another Camaro with a G5CR. Dash ABL and footwell lighting are great mods. I'm not a fan of the catch can and haven't put one in my car. I know a couple of people that put them in their car and they get hardly nothing going into them so I just don't think it's worth the money. Maybe they are worth it and I'm missing out? I have done so many mods on my SS it's hard to recall all of them.

Welcome to the "I drive a cool car club". Love mine and I'm sure you will too! Cold air intake, tune, mufflers and resonator delete. I've also got lots of cosmetic mods.

Much louder with the resonators removed. Deeper rumble at idle and start up as well as when stomping on it.

CONGRATS on your ride and Welcome to our happy little corner of the net, and to Camaro5. There is a BIG fridge on the back porch with anything you can think of in it...help yourself...of course only take what you can LEGALLY have. Make yourself at home on one of the big fluffy couches, kick your shoes off, put your feet up on one of the tables, yes we are allowed to do that, mom's, dad's, wive's, husband's, girlfriend's and boyfriend's here don't care....and take it easy.



oh...btw....every once in a while a food fight breaks out...so you may not want to wear nice clothes here.

Welcome!!

Free up the exhaust with headers followed with some noise and a good cold air system.

As far as mods, I think headers made the biggest difference to my car.
