Next Upgrade?

New here... have 2010 ses sedan, auto.

Have K&N Typhoon Intake, and that's it... bone stock after that.

I want performance, so my question is what the next upgrade should be.

Adding a exhaust system, get a 2.5'' mandrell bent & get a stealth muffler also. Or just get the fwerk's system w/ the stealth option.

I started with the K&N Intake and FSWerks street exhaust. I added a header then a tune. But if you decide to get a header, I recommend getting a tune first, because you will need to have stuff turned off. Learned that the hard way. Those are a great start, and will get you some decent gains.
