Hello guys and gals!
I just traded in my 2011 V6 camaro for a 2011 GT 5.0 California edition auto in grabber blue. I originally went in to switch for a 2013 GT but the dealer gave me a deal I just couldn't refuse on 2011 cali edition w/ only 14k miles that already had a flowmaster exahust installed so I had to take it. I was a hardcore STi guy for over 10 years, then tried the domestic with a v6 camaro, but just wasn't cutting it, so I went in to the dealer today and was going to trade her in but the dealer couldn't locate a 2013 GT in manual plain base which I wanted. The price was climbing 33k plus if I wanted something located quick but I didn't want to go over my budget.
So now I am a "newby" all over again :laughlitt. I already know what the return of 5.0 is capable of from . being on my ex home camaro5, but all I really know is that I have a 2011 5.0 california edition with 14k miles, auto tranny with flowmaster exhaust.
Now, I don't know if the baking weather that's been in 100F all week played a big part in this, but the car just seem a little under powered. It definitely pull hard if I wot, but overall, it feel a little sluggish. Also, there seem to be a short lag just before I wot before the car pulls hard. Throttle response does not seem crispy. Does the 5.0 also have a low/high octane map just like the ss camaro? I know the 5.0 require a premium fuel, but who knows what gas the car is currently filled with.
Is there anything I should know guys. Any important things that I need to know about my new 5.0 cali edition.
Any help to start me off in the right direction would be much appreciated. This is my first auto tranny in 15 years.
