  • How much do these mods help?

    I want to run high to mid 14's in my Camaro and am wonderin what kind of mods i should get. It is the V6 with the Y87 package and want to get a whisper lid whit the K&N as well as headers and a full exhaust. How much power will this get me and how fast should i be with these mods? What other mods are good to get? Also, do aftermarket spark plugs make a difference? [img]graemlins/burnout.gif[/img]

      Stock with the Y87 you should run low 15s, MAYBE high 14s. If you put those two mods on (lid/underhood ram air with the K&N) then you will definitely hit 14s, unless you have a dud lol. Headers and exhaust are always good mods. Headers you can go with either RKSports and hope you get a good set, have them welded up though. Or go with the CIA headers (clear image automotive) that will run you about 670. They are very good quality though. The CIA's may give you like 2 or 3 more HP gain. Exhaust, despite what you are told, do not put flowmaster on your v6. Put a dynomax catback or spintech muffler with a custom intermediate pipe. Make sure to mod your intake (lid and underhood ram air) in conjunction with the exhaust because they will work off of each other and sound better together too.

        Wow, that helped a lot. I would love to hit a 14.9 bone stock. I was lookin at the headers and heard the RKsport had bad seals. Is this true? definitely gonna get the whisper lid. [img]graemlins/burnout.gif[/img]

          Yes they have bad seals at the collector to the y pipe and cat. Or somewhere around there. They are also 2 bolt flanges, not 3 bolt, but as long as you have them tightened properly and or weld them up they should be fine. I plan to weld mine up whenever they get here (don't get me started on UPS).

            Are cars mere machines used for transport from one place to another? Are they just a way of satisfying your social hunger? I am sure passionate car owners would feel otherwise. Don’t you love the freedom you experience when you explore the sensations that go through your body. It is not possible to experience the speed the swiftness without being in a car.

            But when it comes to caring, do you maintain your car in a good manner? Even though the answer might be yes, I am...
