Cool Adding mods to V-6 Mods to Camaro

Ive had my Camaro (V-6) for about 4 months now and I really want more HP,TQ.

What can I do to make it faster?

So far I have added

MBRP - Cat back Exhaust

Gen5 Racing - V-6 Stage 2 High Flow intake Kit +20-25 HP

Zex Nitrous System - 2010 Camaro V6

This one : http://www.pfyc.com/pc/CA3002/CAUNDE...+V6+82367.html

On a site note this is the stuff I added for cosmetic reasons if anybody cares :P.

Phantom Billet Insert
Lloyd Premium Floor Mats
Logo Door Sill Plate Decals
Halo Kit Demon Eyes LED

--------------------------------------------------------------

Any advice or recommendations? Thanks.

Have you done any dyno runs with the intake? 20HP seems pretty high. But if you can show me those numbers, I'll buy one!

I haven't put my car on the dyno yet. It would be the first time I ever put a car on the dyno since this is my first car. So I don't know how they work. Just shooting into the dark and buying upgrades hehe.

Really they said that the reason they don't have a heat-sink because Camaro is susceptible to heat soak that's why I didn't get air raid for example. Link for info on that air intake http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2010-...4506.m20.l1116.

What shot are you running in the nitrous??? i mean if you want more power just change the jet, that is also depending on the currant shot.

I'm assuming you mean heat shield not heat sink...

What appears to happen is the MAF/IAT sensor gets heat soaked and it is slow to recover... HOWEVER without a heat shield like the stock air box or the airaid intake you will be sucking hot air from the engine bay... The stock air box actually does a good job of getting better air from the front of the car rather than sucking in the hotter air further back in the engine bay....

I would be nervous running the smallest shot without doing a dyno run to double check the A/F.... let alone upping the shot without a tune! (which you can't do as of now)

Would this be a good air intake than?

maybe you can trade it in for a bare bones 1ss. You will take a small hit on the trade in but that will be your best bet.

That's the heat shied you want in a CAI... but I'd never spend $500 on that personally....
The Airaid is going for about $330.... wait a month and save the money (IMO)

Hennessey's CAI

I just got an e-mail from the Sales Rep at Hennessey for the AIC you have above (they sell both; theirs and the Airaid) and he told me that dyno testing has theirs at about 5hp gain, but in tests on the track have yielded results at about 15 hp gain. I have another e-mail to him now to see how that compares to the Airaid. More to come...

You may want to get in on this group buy for the Airaid. Claims a 11+ HP gain.

I had nitrous in my other car and found it the probably worst hp mod you can do for a car unless its just for racing but daily driving you cant use nitrous unless you want to blow your intake off your motor from puddling, I dont even count nitrous as a real mod its just a gimmicky thing in my opinion but the other mods sound good

if you have puddling then you aren't doing some thing right... N20 is AWESOME when done right and done at the track! As you pointed out it's not for the street and illegal to be used on the street in most states... But at the track the instant torque is simply incredible and quite the rush!!! LOL!

100 shot on my V6 Mustang... 400+ Ft/lbs of Torque is NOT "gimmicky"... LOL!

Even with a heat shield it's not going to address the issue with heat soaking the MAF/IAT sensor..

I've been working with Scott at MRT... we relocated my IAT Wednesday and it looks very promising... You know how your car feels more alive on those nice cool mornings? I have that all day long now! LOL!

Small hit? My 2LT w/auto, sunroof may get me $25k-26 on a trade, just a guess. A stripper 1SS at MSRP goes for $31k. A 5-6K loss is not small for me.

I'll keep my 1.5 second slower 6 banger with all the goodies thank you.

I see that someone here did a sixty in 5.6. It maybe just one second slower with a few tweaks.

I'd be careful not to under estimate V6 cars, they may surprise you.
