Some people on here have gotten things like Bo White TB edit-sorry I just noticed you already did the PTB... Personally I'm not messing with mine other than intake and reversible tune till my warranty's done. Also, you may have to re-tune it if you go headers/high flow cats.

Do you already have NPP?

If you need to stop better, good brake upgrades are SS lines and better brake pads. The rotors can stay, they are very good unless you frequent the track. If you wanted better than that, you can also go with the CTS-V/ZL1 brake package too and fit it in the budget. BTW, my woman has similar issues with my 1LE. A few cold ones help me numb my pain in the head and neck afterwards... :-)

I thought about that, trading up 6-7 years for like a 89-90 model. But seeing how I am 45, I think they would be more expensive than the 1983 model I got.

markgws6, Yes I have NPP. My tune is from JRE on a Diablosport Intune. Definitely going to do the brake lines, cheap easy mod to do, need to change my brake fluid anyway. Thanks for the suggestion. Thought about doing the calipers, just don't think I need them, I am pretty easy on my brakes. What brake pads do you suggest?

Here's what I would do:

1. Headers - not even because of power, just knowing how inefficient stock exhaust manifold is makes me want "proper" headers.

2. Dyno tune.

3. Polyurethane bushings. (Do they make them for Camaro?) I feel 1LE can benefit from minimizing suspension flex.

4. Stiffer rear sway bar. - 1LE does have an amazingly good turn-in, and minimal unsersteer, but ideally I would like to tune it out completely.

5. Brake air ducts (+ pads) - stock brake are pretty good, but the ducts are relatively inexpensive and can be of a lot of help when decelerating from 150mph.

6. 19' rims - reducing unstrung rotational mass, plus better ride on bumpy roads. (But good rims get pricey.)

Personally, I wouldn't mess with different springs or shocks. Given that it comes from the factory with very well selected spring/shock combo, its just too easy to make things worse by installing aftermarket springs.

It is my DD, the roads suck here(MKE,WI), so those have to be considered. I would like it a little faster/quicker. I like how the handling is now, just want it more consistent? I am a top speed, freeway racer type. On-ramps/off-ramps are taken as fast as I can. I love to drive around people especially SRT8's! Not so much the drag race type. I don't want a winter beater because I would rather spend the money on my 1le instead. I am asking the 1le crowd because we are weird and a little different than the rest of the "Camaro Owners". We understand each other. Good jokes are welcomed, just be nice. Oh yeah, I might track it once at Road America in 2016, but that will be it for track days, again it is a DD. Thanks in advance.

My current mods are:
Airaid CAI
PTB
JRE tune
VTC
Limo tint
Black lugs
ZL1 spoiler
ZL1 belly pan
Catch can
Raptor Shift Light- Not installed yet, leery about tapping into the harness.

What I am thinking:
Headers and cats
Springs- I love how it is now, just want lower/better.
Cam- Scared because it is my DD
2014 HUD? Want it for the shift light, any good? Will it work?
Man, where to start

First off, let me say GO PACK GO!!! Let me come go to a game with you
I owned a 14 1LE and I have to say, the heads up shift indicator was not all that helpful IMO. Your car has some very good suspension out of the box but there are some glaring shortcomings that can be addressed well with our Economical Anti-Wheel Hop Package.

As far as the cam goes, I had our Stage 3 Cam Package in my 1LE and it was a BEAST. If you are afraid of the lope, you could go Stage 2 and it would be a little more tame but I LOVED my Stage 3.

Headers, you must add headers. And then of course, have it tuned by a reputable GM Tuner.

I'd love to help answer any questions. Reach out to us by phone, email or PM.

All the best,

Before you go fast, you damn sure better be able to stop. The brakes and clutch system are the car's weak spots.........
