    First time Camaro owner needing some advice.

    I just bought a Camaro SS on March 17. It is still stock and I want to put some extras on it. I just have no idea which brands to look into. I want to put cold air induction and bigger injectors on it. I need some suggestions on which to buy.

    Get a LS6 intake ~ SLP is having a sale, or buy used
    Headers will get you alot. ~ Pacesetter, QTP, Dynatech, Hooker
    and any lid.


    You do not need bigger injectors.

    You do not change injectors on a car like this until much later in heavy mods or you will have problems.

    WHAT?! SLP is having a sale. Their products are so overpirced. The sale prices should be what they need to sell their products at in the first place. Well that's how I feel anyway.

    If your installing LT's you might wanna go ahead and change the plugs/wires while ur at it.

    I meant underperforming like you dont expect them to rub the asphalt or concrete as you drive...not HP wise. Other LTs perform by providing the HP and no rubbing, scraping issues.

    i don't think he was bashing lt's in general, but just bashing the slp headers. They are wayyy overpriced and underperform in the fact that their clearance sucks. And they won't come near slp's bloated hp claims.

    If you buy SLP only your car will probably be faster cuz your pockets will be lighter.

    Do the mods the others are talking about...plus the free mods at http://www.installuniversity.com/ins...sity/index.htm .

    As far as brands it's really up to you...i'm not a fan of SLP though. Their products are just ok but you add in the expensive price...not so ok.

    So do the free mods, pacesetter coated headers have a good build/fit/price, LS6 manifold(if you don't need egr and a.i.r for smog then delete them..otherwise you'll need the sp manifold version) and a tune.
