K&N air intake
Side exhaust system w/ headers
Spark Plugs and fuel injecters
Performance Cam
Performance Tires
Sway Bars
A LOT MORE...

This is just under the hood. Imagine what I plan to do w/ the exterior. It will be a p***y magnet

The first thing I'm going to do is get my windows tinted, and probably put a sub or two in it, because I like ALL my music loud and bassy, not just rap. Then over time rims, performance tires, K&N intake, plugs, injectors, exhaust if Chevy doesn't offer an upgrade like they do on Corvette's, and whatever else i can do.

Stock isn't mine. I have to make a car mine when I get it. I love music, so it's got to have sick audio. I want more power, so my Camaro isn't like your Camaro. If some fool says he can keep up with a Camaro, I'll tell that fool, "You can't keep up with my Camaro." Different is better for me. I want to stand out a little.

Me too!

I will get better intake and exhaust flow, and I'm gonna buy a tuner and tune every paremeter to perfection. And disable CAGS immediately.

But you'll never know by looking at it that there are modifications (sleeper)

The results of this poll are very telling about the community that participates on this forum. The majority of f-body owners do not mod their cars, but the majority here do. I guess enthusiasts are more likely to mod, which makes sense.

I'm going mod-free for at least a year or two. I may add something down the road if it can provide a real world (i.e. seat of the pants) improvement.

I'll do what most everyone has already posted. I'm eager to see if someone can come out with side exhaust. Assuming there is an option, later, with an artificial lung, I'll be planning on the usual mods' for that particular set-up.

I'm hoping to be able to order mine, so I'm hoping I'll be able to get what I want. That wasn't the case with the last two I've had, thus, spent a LOT of $$$ making it closer to what I want. I'm planning on not doing that this time.
