    First mods?

    What low cost mods do you recommend that I start with on a stock 2001 BC4 Camaro? I have been told that the replacement airbox lid is a must. What else should I change? Cash is a consideration, so I must make my changes gradually.

    For the most part, yes. I'm not able to pull the heads or anything like that. I have no experience with Chevs other than I drove a 9C1 Caprice for a few years. I can work on my Fox mustang and do some work on my 03 Cobra, but they are totally different animals when you start modding the engine. There are low cost mods that work on a 87-93 5.0 mustang to increase RWHP and RWTQ and I would think that there are unique mods that work for the Camaro. What works for one may not apply to the other. Case in point, the Airbox Lid. I will have to look at the one on this car and compare it to an SLP lid cover to see the difference. That mod was suggested to me last night on another thread. I would not have known about it if someone hadn't suggested it. I am not going to waste time and money on something that you guys have already tried and determined it to be useless.

    Look into the free mods then, free ram air being the biggest one. Porting your TB would do a lot for you also if you are willing to tackle something like that

    "Free Ram Air"? I've heard that referred to before by someone. Is that an alteration to the existing system?

    yeah, you take out your air filter and cut out the back half of the lower airbox, then cut the plastic baffle between it and the ac condenser, then the air dam is forcing air from underneath into your breather. go to www.installuniversity.com then install pages and it's listed, they give you pics and step by step instructions if you need them

    thanks. Are there any problems with water getting into the filter when driving in rain?
