Default how to build a sweet camaro
i've kinda been tossing around the idea of getting a camaro and ditching the truck. if i did it, what all should i do to get it right the first time? like what years, engine, and tranny option should i get? i would want one of the latest body styles (4th gen?)

for upgrades, what all do guys do to these cars? intake and headers/exhaust? cam? tune? turbo/sc is kinda too pricey i think.

school me

What type of car are you looking for meaning, what do you want the 4th gen to do or to look like.

there is a million an a half things you can do, if you have the money to start out get a 98-02 camaro, i think they look the best of the 4th gens, plus you can get an ls1, go ss 6 speed hehe but z28 has the same engine

ls1's sound good regardless of what you do, lt1's in the earlier 4th gens sound amazing cammed

to get the most out of your 4th gen, work on the heads, thats the major weak point, and get cam, exhaust, intake

you'll be quite happy after thats all done
