Here at ModBargains.com, we enjoy sharing the stories of true car enthusiasts. Greg owns a 2010 Camaro 2SS, and has gone all out trying to get every ounce of power from it. But instead of us telling his story, here are his words on how he came to own and modify this beauty of a beast.
When I bought my Camaro, I was really looking for a truck. I had just driven an F-150 King Ranch at the dealership and was very impressed. While I was on the lot looking, I also drove a 2012 Camaro 1SS manual. After driving that Camaro, I knew I wasn’t getting a truck, the sports car had my heart.
Now, I have always always been a Mustang guy, my dad had several mustangs back in his day, so I always thought I’d get a Mustang if I got a sports car. That same day, I drove a 2013 Mustang GT, also manual. I liked the Camaro better, got one ordered from out of state that had low mileage and bam here I am today with a 515hp Camaro.
My first mod was the 69′ Camaro script emblems for the side, and they are probably still my favorite. It brings a retro, classy look to the car that not many other Camaro’s have. Makes mine unique in my opinion. After that it has been all out performance.
The first few months I installed a cold air intake, ported throttle body, headers, tune, and a cam. That held me over for a while, but had some engine trouble recently that set me back, you have to pay to play and I guess it was my time to pay. Somehow the cam gear sheared the pin, engine jumped timing, and all the valves were bent.
Not to worry though, after that I had the heads ported, a bigger cam went in, FAST 102MM was port matched and installed, Monster Twin Disk and a different cold air intake. I got excited again, especially with my new dyno numbers.
Aside from the Camaro’s performance, I’m finally getting into the looks of the car. Recently purchased my VMR V710 wheels from ModBargains and couldn’t be happier with them. Great fitment and I love the concave look of the wheels. I can’t tell you how many people have asked me what wheels I have. After the lowering springs and splitter were installed, she looks meaner than ever.
Thanks to the Mod Experts at ModBargains, I’m already in the process of working out my new drag wheel/tire setup with the guys.
