Owners that have purchased the all-new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro haven’t even had them long enough to drop their first French fry between the seats and Chevrolet already has a slew of performance parts available for the sporty coupe. Just behind the pack of SEMA concept Camaros was a 2016 Camaro SS tilted on its side to show off where the majority of Chevrolet’s new parts will be used.
Starting at the rear, ground effects will be offered with a lower rear valence that includes twin exhaust exits. These exits are compatible with axle-back exhaust systems for the 3.6L V6 and the LT1, each using compact mufflers that are a direct replacement for the factory parts and maintain the factory warranty while boosting performance and giving the cars a more aggressive sound. Two versions are available for each powertrain; one that works with the aforementioned lower valence, and one that uses the stock exhaust routing. The only caveat is that the new exhaust isn’t compatible with cars equipped the optional dual-mode exhaust.
Complete suspension lowering kits for V6 and V8 coupes will be ready when the convertibles launch early next year. The kits use higher-rate front and rear coil springs and tuned struts and shocks for an overall drop of 0.8 inch.
Four-cylinder and six-cylinder Camaros can opt for a Brembo performance front brake package with four-piston calipers and 13.6-inch rotors like those found on the SS. Also included are new front brake hoses and hardware. The V8 cars can go even larger, with a Brembo performance front brake package that uses 14.6-inch rotors and a six-piston monoblock caliper.
