Default My dad has some new toys for his 2011 Camaro

About a month ago, he ordered a set of SLP headers. Months earlier, he ordered a set of fairly cheap rotors (around $400 for a set of 4). And last week, he started putting the stuff on. He'* still in the process of installing both items, even deciding to paint the Brembo calipers red and ordering Russell'* stainless steel brake hoses. He might've messed up one of the factory brake hoses on accident (caliper fell while connected, no noticable damage, but he doesn't want to take the chance), so it'* a good thing he did order the hoses.

Here'* how the new rotors and painted calipers look.


A better look at the rotor itself.


A good look at the driver side header before it gets put in.


And the header installed.

Tell your dad when he is done bolting stuff on to his car to take it in for a tune to really wake it up.

He'* already got a small tune on it. I'm not sure if he'll do anything else on it... He was thinking about a camshaft upgrade, but after passing a guy one night, he thought that the Camaro is fast enough without that kind of boost. Funny thing about all this though, is that before he even looked at Camaros, he said "oh, I won't do anything to my next car", and when he started looking at Camaros "maybe just exhaust, CAI, and a tune", to all that he'* got now.

Yeah, definately a fancy little car. He also ordered some white Brembo decals for the calipers since he painted them. All in all, when he'* done, the car will look and sound amazing. Well, the car sounded amazing already thanks to a Flowmaster exhaust kit. The car also looks amazing as is, but the rotors and painted calipers will definately make the Foose wheels worth having even more.

I joke with my dad that since he'* borrowing my car while he has his in the garage, I should be allowed to borrow the Camaro for a while. Which, not surprisingly, was a no.

He almost bought a new silver one. But then on the dealership'* site, he saw a used black one (this one) with an aftermarket GPS system, and it interested him. The next day, he took a look at it, loved it, and purchased it the same day. It turns out that the GPS system wasn't the only aftermarket part on this Camaro. A backup cam that works with the GPS screen, straight pipes (which got replaced by the Flowmasters), some extra badging (some of which were removed due to inaccuracies), and a nice greenish light around the edge of the door panel trim. He'* happy with his purchase, even though he does miss his last car a whole lot.
