My 14 SIM 1SS/RS

I figured it was time to start a build thread. It will be slow goin but I'll get there.

This is my first Camaro and first "new" car. I've wanted a 5th gen since they first came out and I was finally able to get one.

She is a 2014 SIM 1SS/RS with the only other options being the short throw shifter and NPP exhaust.

Here is a pic of her at the dealership before I took her home.

Then the modding began. I'll be keeping the mods pretty minor for now with dreams for the future. Mods to date are CAI intake, plasti-dipped badges, and black hood spears that I cut.

Looking good!

I especially like the hood spears. Really gives it a 3D look. Nice job.

Congrats on the purchase and mods to date. Time for some performance mods. Get a VRam ported throttle body, ARH LT headers w/HF cats and a tune and your Permagrin will expand several fold.

Thanks. Throttle body and hf cats may be in the near future but I'm not sure about headers yet. Trying to make the warranty last as long as I can handle.

Got my wheels on this weekend. They are Factory Reproductoins style 41 20x9 up front and 20x10 in back on stock p-zeros. I also installed an Elite Engineering catch can and removed my front plate. We will see how long it takes before I get pulled over(if at all) and have to put it back on. Looks so much better without it. Next purchase will be a better camera to take better pictures with.
