Newbie Questions about Cam, Pulleys, Other Mods
 
Howdy, I am looking at the car that texas speed has for sale and I am pretty much an newbie when it comes to engine modifications. I have done mods to my cars like exhuast, CAI, wheels, etc, but never anything else.

Here are the items that were added by texas speed to their 2010 SS camaro. Can someone please tell me what each one does?

Also, I assume it voids the warranty, so should Ibe concerned about that at all?

Mods on car:

TSP Headers/Xpipe Magnaflow Mufflers
TSP Underdrive Pulley Kit
TSP 231/236 Camshaft Kit
PRC CNC Ported LS3 Heads
TSP Air Induction System

Headers and x-pipe improve the exhaust flow out of the engine, thus freeing up a little bit of power. Under-drive pulleys reduce the work that the engine has to do to turn things like the water pump. An aftermarket camshaft generally changes the torque characteristics so that it can make more power at high rpms, though this often results in a sacrifice at lower rpms. Ported heads improve air flow into (and exhaust flow out of) the cylinder. Air induction generally reffers to cold air induction (or cold air intake, CAI either way). Cold outside air is denser than the hot air under the hood, and denser air makes more power.

The MTI Racing Six Shooter Shifter would be a perfect addition to the mods already on the car.

Which pulleys if any would you recommend I heard that they can mess up the balance of something in the engine or something. I really have no idea I just want to make sure if you buy a pulley is all you have to do is put it on and your good to go.
