Lola-the red 2015 Camaro

Hey all! Just made it to this awesome community, with my first Camaro.

2015 1LS Red Hot-bought it brand new on Wednesday Aug 26th from the local dealership. It was a loaner car, so it had 2500 miles on it, and I got about $1500 off the total. Traded in my 2009 Mini Cooper for it. The mini needed about $5000 in repairs, and I was upside down on it, so decided to trade in on something as the dealership offered me 72 mo at 0%, and a decent amount for the trade. On with the pics, and the start of my build thread!




So-plans are to build a fun little street car.

So far, since I purchased the car-I ordered a CAI Intake, Elite Engineering catch can, and, a SS/Z28 Spoiler from Amazon, as i was NOT going to pay $500 from the dealership to have one intalled, but that rear end needed something to tie it together, pronto!


Picked up a user's CAI Intake for $225 shipped, a catch can from JDP for $150, and the spoiler (pre painted!!!!) for $99 shipped. Reviews on the spoilers were top notch, so I am pretty excited.

Plans are to install those, decide what to do exhaust wise (Thinking MRT V2, or just de-muffler and High Flow X pipe), and then eventually supercharge it. Suspension wise, i have not decided what I am going to do.

This will be a constant updating thread, and i appreciate any feedback or advice!

Thanks all!

Thanks! Selling my mountain bike this week, then going to order more parts.

My ultimate goal is to FI it.

But this go around will be exhaust, wheels, possibly a ported TB. Debating on getting the MRT V2 exhaust, or just de-muffing and X piping it.


Looking for a factory set of SS wheels so I can powder coat them as well.

Installed my CAI Intake last night-wow what a difference. Pics will be up when it stops raining.

Today, the windows are getting tinted, and my Elite Engineering Catch Can gets delivered.

Purchasing some factory SS wheels with tires (only 6000 miles on them!) from a member here today as well. Will be sending them out for powdercoat.

Then starting on audio. Getting the Metra in dash kit, and the new Alpine iLX-007 Double Din with backup camera and all the fixin's!

Oh, ordered my custom plates too!

Installed the CAI Intake and Elite Engineering Catch Can today. Also just picked it up from having tint done. 20% all around with a 5% brow.

awesome color I love it.
If it is a 1LS then you must get a clutch resevoir seperator kit. (it seperates the dirty brake fluid from the clean) I just got one for my car and I highly recommend it.
Also go with DOT4. Enjoy the car it is going to be a blast moving forward.

Hmm....I will look into that. Any links?

Got my Spoiler today and installed. I'll have pics up tomorrow!

Installed! Those holes being drilled...scary moment on a brand new car! Haha

Definitely changes the look of the entire car though! This is the $99 shipped Amazon paint matched spoiler. Looks awesome.

PIcked up some 2000 mile take offs from a 2014 SS. High polished, tires in perfect shape.

For now-will get a bath tonight
