I usually don't mod, but...

After trading in my Z06 for the Camaro SS RS, I am starved for HP. I just ordered the first, of what will most likely be more HP upgrades. Placed an order for a new CAI @ CAI Inc. Thinking about placing an order for a Corsa exhaust too, as I also miss the sound of my Z06.

Congrats on the New Camaro.

Just an FYI listen to Corsa in person on a Camaro before installing it.
It doesnt sound the same as the Vette for some Odd reason.
A lot of folks love it because of no drone but they also get upset its quiet......unless you install a Cam then it sound very good.

Congrats on the C.A.I you will enjoy it as its one of the top CAI's offered.

Thank you. I've been thinking about a cam, but that's gonna be a ways off yet. Any suggestions on exhaust, aside of the Corsa, stock is just too tame for my taste.

Definitely try and hear as many in person as possible...sound clips on youtube usually don't do any of them justice. I like Flowmaster, Borla, & Spintech....but there's lots of others to choose from.

Thanks for the ideas. Not many Camaro's around here, so hearing one in person is gonna be difficult.

I have a friend with a Z06 and a Corsa system and he likes the sound of my Borla Touring on my Camaro better. I like it alot. There is a YouTube video out there of a Gen5 with a cam and Borla, sounds great.

2SS/RS L99 A6, RotoFab CAI, Kooks LT headers w/High Flow cats, Borla CAT back, Heritage grill, SmartMirror, ABL lighting, drilled and slotted rotors w/Hawk pads, 400 watt amp.


Life is too short to drive an ugly car.
I bought mine from Camaro Scotty!
