MF competition cat-back was installed last Friday at MF Tech Center in SoCal.

Changed the exhaust characteristic quite a bit!

Still breaking in, but overall I like it, definitely fits the attitude of the SS!

If you are in SoCal area, feel free to stop by and have a listen here at STILLEN.

As far as I know I am the first to have this system installed, but more will have it soon!

The FF15s are 19x10 ET25 all around

The FF01s are 20x9 ET 25 and 20x10.5 ET35

I run a 5mm spacer on the front FF15s to clear the strut ribs.

The FF01s I run a 15mm spacer on the front to fit better to my taste.

Give me a call if you are interested in a set!

Eibach PRO-KIT springs being installed as I type this on the SS! Looking forward to the new height afterwards and better handling!

Curious about this. A few things:

1) 15mm spacer, check. What size the hub on these camaros? I have a 12 mm spacer, i think the hub is 72.6 mm, any chance that works?

2) Super curious about how your lowered the car with MRC and eibach. Did you adjust the ride height thingy? Or did you just slap some springs on? How does the car feel? Is it too firm in touring?

Hello!

To answer your questions.

1) The 6th gen SS are 67.0 mm hub bore, so the 72.6 is not ideal for a 12mm spacer, a spacer that wide would need to be hub centric to function properly.

2) Eibach is offering springs that are MRC compatible. The sensors on each control arm do not need to be adjusted, they only detect transient movement and do not measure ride height. The car feels great, same comfort level in touring, less dive under braking, less squat under hard acceleration, meshes well with the factory swaybars. Sport mode feels even better and I can't wait to try track mode in a track environment. All in all it bolsters the MRC suspension even more.

Depending on which wheels your SS came with, will determine which spacers you can get and how much trimming of the studs you will need to do.

The solid 5 spokes, you can run the 25mm eibach spacers (minimum needed) and not need to trim the studs on front or rear. The twin spoke 5s will need trimming on front and rear for the 25mm eibach spacers.

I have yet to encounter a SS with the forged split 5 spoke wheels, which I think are the last available option, not sure what those need as far as spacers or stud trimming required.

My HRE FF01's should be here today

From what it sounds like, I'll need to run some spacers up front for looks, but not for clearance, right!? I'm going to put 285/30/20 up front, and 305/30/20 in the rear.

Eibach's are next. I'm just worried about lowering MRC, something blowing up, and my warranty giving me the big F u.

Which FF01 fitment did you get? 20x9 and 20x10.5?
Yes, 20x9 and 20x10.5. Tirerack said the 285's would fit (9" minimum wheel width), and I have them already as I was originally planning to go with the MRR M017s (20x10, 20x11) but changed my mind after seeing the pics.

I also dont think the size difference between stock and the new is a huge difference. It's less than 1.5%.
