MY FIRST CAMARO! I need some performance suggestions

New to the forums and new to the Camaro family! I purchased my new 2013 2SS RS Inferno Orange Metallic on 05/06/2013. Cannot be happier!

Now, on performance - What should I get done first? Intake, exhaust, or what? I want to increase the stock HP a little.

Also, what can I do so my Cam hiccups like it does when the engine is turned on? I want these hiccups to occur more on reving up the engine a little.

Thanks!

Welcome to MC and Congratulations on your First Camaro!!! She's a Beauty!!!

For starters, I would go with a CAI, New Exhaust, and LT Headers with a Tune. That should free up some HP and completely change the sound of your car!!

Awesome! Congrats! As mentioned before on mods,exhaust,intake and headers. My first one was the exhaust because it was too quiet for a muscle car. Youtube has many vids of exhaust but to get a better perspective I would suggest watching and listening with headphones.

Thanks!
Nothing you can do outside of actually changing the cam for something with lope in it. This is a rather large undertaking and you have to decide whether to stay with a VVT cam or convert to non-VVT. Both will take some $ to get done but give the what you want (to some degree on the VVT style). Non-VVT cams are usually more radical with their specs...

Welcome and best of luck with the modding....

Congrats ! Your new ride looks awesome

I had the CAI and Catback with a tune and did not notice much (seat of pants only) difference. I added the LT headers with a dyno tune and the car felt like a whole different car.
