Are you saying you already have an intake , speakers and pdip?

Id suggest better suspension , and maybe a catback exhaust and a tune if youv already got the intake .

What intake are you going with ? Id suggest fswerks for both intake and exhaust . There are 3 different exhaust options available from them , id suggest YouTube to get a few ideas as to how their setups sound .

I was going to go with a K&N, but I'll look up the fswerks...might as well go with matching brands all the way through right?

Heres a sound clip from an 08 , same engine as yours with the fswerks race exhaust . It is their loudest setup , they also have a stealth setup which is a bit quieter

Their all 2.5 , i have the street ( which retains the second catalytic converter , as opposed to the race and stealth which delete the second cat )and it initially was pretty quiet , but iv since replaced my second cat with a 2.5 inch straight pipe in preparation for a header install . Now it is essentially the same as the race setup and sounds in my opinion " perfect " . Im sure i will have to add another resonator though when i install the header because its gonna get real loud lol
