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.

underdrive pulleys
Amzoil
cold air kit
HighPro sparkplugs
Fitch Catalyst
New oil pan with windage tray and crank scraper

Other engine mods would depend on what engine is coming

I like the electric waterpump and ac idea, how easy are those kits to obtain and are they actually reliable? Secondly, lol, you have a TT 350z why you wanna drift in the Camaro, the Z is like a natural drifter both in original intentions of the design and proven in competitions!

All the normal LS bolt ons and a small cam should but any V8 they put in the car to where i want it. I'll stop modding when the dyno shows 500 to the wheels.

Will do home made CAI, side exhaust, and headers as soon as I can. Then from there it all depends.

I have high goals, so I may have to wait on some modifications for a tune to be available. Since I plan on keeping the car for a long time, a motor swap (LS7 plus supercharger) may be in my future.
