I don't plan on increasing my power, it will have enough from the factory to run down your mopar so why mess with success? Just jokin around. I might do some modding after owning it for a number of years but I doubt it.

I intend to slowly do bolt-ons here and there. Nothing that affects warranty or is obnoxious...just little things to make it my own. Possibly exhaust, definitely intake, maybe some other bolt-on stuff or cosmetics. Once the warranty is up? Who knows, but I'm a sucker for forced induction.

I plan on keeping mine stock (V8). But I am considering adding CAI and possibly exhaust.

I'm going to stay along the lines of what's been posted: intake, catback, pulley (if we can get a supercharger,) and tune.

PS - I don't hate on your HEMI

hmm...I'll be keeping it 100% bone-stock if I grab the V8 (99% probability )

But if I got the V6? I'd pray that Magnuson makes a model for the V6...if they don't, then I'd be going to STS Turbo systems to have them mock-up a system for me (if they don't have one already).

One way or another I will have a supercharger. We do know that there is a test mule with a blower. So, I'm hoping for that. Pulley, cam and tune will be soon to follow...

Yeah, I don't hate on your Dodge either, I just want to beat it... Just Messin'

What fun is it having a Camaro if you don't tweak it a little.

Ugh, this question makes me sad. It's going to be hard enough to afford the thing, let alone mod it. But, I have the feeling that my plans to mod " a little" will eventually turn in to a lot!

If GM does their job and builds a gt 500 killer with 550 hp then I will only have to do a simple pulley swap and some programming.
