POLL: Stock or Modified???

We all agree to some extent that Chevy did a pretty dang good job on the Camaro performance. Obviously some want more and I am certain some are quite content with stock. Here is a poll so we get a feel for the percentage of people in each catagory.

I want to mod it to mildy boost performance. I basically want an upgraded exhaust and camshaft. If I had those two performance upgrades besides my current CAI, I'd be very happy. Now, if I started taking my Camaro to the track, I'm sure my opinion might change. But being able to easily out accelerate and look cooler than 99% of cars on the road today is good enough for me!

My car is as fast, as the fastest street racer cars of my day (60's) adding a lot of mods "will not" improve its value... A 10th of a second is a blink of eye... Where can I drive over 60-70mph around here? 30mph over posted, will get car towed, and you walk home.. If you want a race car, build one, and take it to the track on a trailer... 2 cents

I'm a big proponent of making it mine. If you're going to spend a lot of time and money on your transportation, it should make a statement about who you are.

I put a Cold Air Induction on him at 740 miles. When he comes out of winter storage he gets the ground effects and a new exhaust. I maybe will be putting long tube headers on later this year. I would like to be able to say I have 500 hp, so maybe in a year of so add a cam to get there,, But that is all I plan to do, that will be fast enough for me.

I have the only Synergy Green Car for many many miles. My color choice states I'm an obnoxious Jack Ass. Enough said.
