what's next?

Hi everyone from Russia!) I have 2012 2LT A6 camaro, my mods are K&N cold air intake, flowmaster axle-back , Hotchkis sway bars.

The v6 engine is good, I really believe that camaro can go less 6 seconds 0-60, but the problem is that performance of the car until 3000 rpm isn't good (sorry for my bad english) .
So the question is- what mods can I install to make car go faster under 3000 rpm, I really want my camaro make 0-60 faster than 6 seconds. Now I'm thinking about trifecta tune, but I dont know is it worth the money. another problem of trifecta is that I live in Russia and I will install the chip by myself.

Also I want to ask about Hotchiks lowering springs. I want to install them, so may be someone of you installed them allready and can tell the opiniom about this mod.

Thank you for your answers!)

VMAX Ported Throttle body will help a bit along with going full cat-back with high flow cats. While the last 2 will be very small increases, it will help.

Lowering these cars is easy on 2012 and 2013. I went with Eibach, but it is easy to do.

Thank you for your reply ! I am thinking hard about high flow cats. I have flowmaster axle back and as for me the level of noise is on maximum, so I'm really afraid that with high flow cats it will much louder...

Just make sure you keep the resonator. Honestly these V6's with only the cats coming off the head are very tame. High flow vs the double cats on now, will not make much of a difference in sound on these V6's.

Coming off the manafold you will have a single pipe on each side that has 2 catalytic converters inline.



You can see them fairly clear here.

But yes currently SOLO HFC's have one Cat on them vs. the 2 stock Cats.

To note, it has been proven over and over again the gain from these is not very much. Overall I have seen MPG be the best result from these, which could save you $$$ overall
