    making it better

    I bought a 2002 SS Camaro not to long ago and I love it, but I decided I want to boost up the power. I'm still kind of new to all of the technical things so I wondering if anyone could give me suggestions on what I can do? I'm planning on spending up to $10,000. Thanks in advance.

    Wow 10g's you can start off w/ some small mods.
    Cat back exhaust, headers, lid, pulley, then after that you can move up to a bigger cam, heads etc.....

    Don't forget about chasis and suspension improvements as well. Is that a typo($10,000)?

    get some sub frames to controll all that power, you might also consider getting a new rear end (the weakst part of the drive train)

    the 12 bolt is nice, but they still break. If you go with a Ford 9-inch, you'd be set. It's a little heavier, but you more than make up for the extra weight. Plus, that effin thing aint gonna break.
