to the forums, Rainfarer. You've got yourself a great car and did some cool mods Hope the shudder doesn't return, but I bet you know what to do in case it does.

How about your future modding plans?

Welcome to the forum.

It's really cool that you have access to a G6 Camaro. Hope you are able to enjoy it as much as the those of us here on the other side of the ocean. You'll find that most everybody here is really nice and supportive of others, especially if you have questions or problems with your car.

Stay safe. We're all pulling for you and your countrymen!

I can't say that it's mainstream popular and I kinda like it this way). Judging by the car selling boards and other sources we have ~50-60 gen 6 Camaros in total in our country and somewhat 60-80 gen 5. I personally know a guy (ex-colleague) who owns a gen 3 and his car is one of the ~3-4 in the Ukraine.

Short-term:
I want to change the factory speakers and amp (I have a non-Bose system). Right now I'm looking for an answer on where can I find the amp on this system because all I have in my trunk is a module with no radiator fins that says Denso on it and I don't think this is it)

Long-term:
AirLift's bags, Procharger, and paint/vinyl job, but I'll have to see how things will be looking in autumn. My second car is an old warrior, 2006s Mitsu Pajero Sport that is somewhat heavily modified for the off-road. 10 years ago I've thrown away the rear springs and replaced them with 2 AirLift trailer bags with remote control system. It was one of the best mods I've done in terms of price vs gains, so now I want Fury bagged with their kit as well. We have really crappy roads over here so it would be very useful to have several height options to change on the fly between bad road, good road, and track.

As for the Procharger - it's a complicated point, I will be starting a topic on the forum in case I will not be able to find what I'm looking for. The thing is that I like the sound of my car 100% the way it is right now. It's very V6-y right now with 2 options, subtle and slightly more open and louder (I'm not a fan of extremely loud exhausts). I know that the sound will change with a supercharger and that's fine, but recently I've got to listen to a Camaro 6.2L Fifty with a Procharger - with an open hood it has a looot of whine and high pitch noise. I reckon that it would be more subdued behind the wheel, because of the soundproofing and hood closed, but still, it turned me down a lot. One thing that I have hope for is that Procharger has a less noisy option called "Helical gearset for noise reduction", but I haven't found any video of the sound of it on YT or anywhere, every video is with the standard gears set. With this upgrade's price well over 8k$ with delivery, it would be a very pricey mistake to have it installed just to realize that I can't handle the noise) So in case anyone from community has a Procharger with this option installed and some spare time they would really help me out recording the sound with hood opened, closed and behind the wheel

Welcome, Rainfarer!

I can't begin to fathom the way your life has changed over the last 5-6 months, but glad to hear that your Camaro is bringing you some joy during these trying times. I hope and pray that Ukraine emerges victorious and leaves Russia defeated and feeling embarrassed like a bully that gets trounced on the playground.

Thanks for the welcome, everyone

Found some pics and a very crappy video of the exhaust system (still gives a hint of the sound): https://www.instagram.com/p/Ce8BbPcITnM/?hl=en
