    Alright first of all the only way your going to get 425hp out of it is to drop at least 3000 bucks...AT LEAST...and if your parents are willing to do that for you thats good, i guess, but I was 17 when I bought mine and that was a year ago and I wanted to mod the crap out of mine right away, but I found out it takes lots of time and money, here is what I have done so far being an 18 year old kid only making 10 bucks an hour at my job part time, plus going to school..

    1. K&N
    2. SLP Lid
    3. 87mm MAF
    4. SLP cold air induction
    5. Under drive pullies
    6. Bellow
    7. HyperTek CP3, 160*
    Thats just a quick start to get things going, as of right now I just ordered an LS6 intake manifold, and sub frame connectors, hopfully this will help a little bit, good luck. O and try keeping it on the road 16 is very early to be driving this kind of car, hell 18 is way to early to be driving this kind of car..Just be smart and prove ppl wrong.

    bang for buck huh? Borla will NEVER be the best bang for your buck, to damned expensive, especially true duals. Get a SLP loudmouth. Hypertech blows get a Diablo if you want a handheld tuner. Pacesetter LTs and ORY would be a good setup with the loudmouth. you need the intake just get the filter and an SLP lid.

    whole package will net you about 340-350 horsepower.. you need heads/cam or nitrous to make your goal. and dont kill yourself stud

    the MAF is crap, you dont make enough power to need i, keep your stocker
    the bellow is a waste of money but it looks nice.
    and like i said HPP3 sucks donkey balls

    yeah thier both autos he has no upgrades both stock i know he was running straight headers due to the fact that his converters were missed up i dont get it they should tie. is traction control better on or off we ran them both on the only thing i know he did was start at 2nd gear and i started at 1

    if I remember right for an auto camaro its od d 2 1 no 3, I think only firebirds formulas and trans ams have 3. also if he takes off in 2 in an auto from a dead stop it will still take off in 1st if I'm right like I think I am, then it'll shift to 2nd, but will need to be put in od or d to go to higher gears. Tell your buddy to be careful doing that, because I think those a4s suck because they're fragile. no offense, but I just don't know of them really lasting very long.

    and man be careful with your formula, I got a v6 camaro when I was 17 and when people hear camaro and teenager they already have thoughts. All I say is keep it on the road, stay safe, have fun and enjoy it too! believe me, you've got a lot of people bettin against you now. back at home there was this guy who would see me every now and then and every time he saw me he'd say I see you haven't wrapped that car around a tree yet, and I'd look and just kinda grin and think to my self, "cuz I take care of my shit"
