Default Buying a 6th Gen Camaro SS in 2 month

As soon as the weather warms up here in MI I am going to pull the trigger, I know visibility is not great but was curious as to what 6th Gen owners like and dislike about the 6th Gen Camaro SS.

I am not aware of any weak links (Ex. 10 bolt in 4th gen or Trans in Mustangs)

The looks great and the LT1 platform is just a great design, any bolt on advice or costs for tunes, etc would be helpful. Thanks!

Visibility is fine...you can see where you need to. The paint is brittle, I suggest Xpel on the areas subject to stones and debris. A8's notorious for converter shudder if not tuned early in its life. Rear end groan when cold on the first couple turns. Other then that they are a solid car that drives really nice and perform exceptionally well with minimal mods and tune.

Great info! Thank you for sharing. Any weak point, like previous years (10 bolt) that I should be aware of?

As mentioned, A8 shudder and also check the Axle bolts, they are known to back out. There is a TBS retro kit that is basically longer bolts.

Yeah, I think there are 4 or 5 recalls for the Camaro SS now. Still an amazing machine though

Brett Stewart, owner of Pray Performance. The man has dedicated lots of time and money towards making the 6th gen Camaro go fast. He just had a M6 car with his ported intake manifold/tb, roto fab cai, headers, flex fuel tune, drag pack, pull off a 10.85 @ 126. He has like 10 cars with these mods and his tuning in the 10's with decent air.
