Headers. You'll get the most power and sound.

texas_boss 03-23-2012 03:08 PM

depends on how much jack you have to throw at the car....my first mod is LG full exhaust set up....these LS series engines LOVE to breathe!!!

nebchevy 03-23-2012 03:15 PM

I would personality start with exhaust or CAI

Xyient911 03-23-2012 03:15 PM

well, my budget is about a grand.

2010 SSRS 03-23-2012 03:49 PM

Definitely exhaust

texas_boss 03-23-2012 03:55 PM

well atleast get the cat back in 3".....i have installed the flowmaster kit, very nice and great price....there are plenty of other cat backs that are just as good too.

with a budget of $1k you can do CAI and Headers.

Best money I ever spent; XS-Power long tube headers and cat-back exhaust. There is a great power increase and the sound is sooooo beautiful. I recommend this setup to every single Camaro owner I know. I have gotten tons of compliments from admirers. You could buy this whole setup AND an intake and your Camaro would be an entirely new beast. Don't ask, just DO IT!!

Headers and a tune if you have $1000. Thats what I did, got Stainless Works Power headers and a SCT tune from Jannetty. Sound and power.

brantley847 03-27-2012 05:14 PM

headers was my favorite mod to date versus the amount of money I had to put down. Cam sounds the best, but cost so damn much.. while the headers at 1k isn't terrible...especially given the power gains and incredible sound.

Get quotes from some of your shops down there. We have incredible shops in S. FLA a lot of them could give you headers and a dyno for around 1200. I'd recommend waiting so you can bump your budget up to 1.2k. It is worth it.

The street tunes are great, but if you dont have a back road to punch it to 90 mph without getting FHP to stop you... you may not be able to do them.

Call Lashaway, Torq, Xtreme etc etc... just pick up some quotes for parts, labor, tune and if you do a package they can work with you pretty well.
