New tuner questions

Ive been driving my SVT for a number of months now, and as winter closes in and Im parking it, I can finally get the chance to do some serious modifications, but I must confess, Im fairly new to doing modifications.
So far, I havent modified the car very much. Hella headlamps,K&N Typhoon Short Ram, Pioneer 10' Sub a small Mtx Thunder amp,and Pioneer deck(cant remember which model, but 2006 model).. so basically... nothing really at all :-(
Need some advice on where to go from here, Im thinking of upgrading the exhaust system, and Im not sure which to choose, the HkS System or the Borla system. And after that, to gain anything out of that, what other upgrades should I look at?
Im really looking to get smooth horsepower gains, a crisper sound on the exhaust. Need to represent! Too many honda guys in my area need to respect Svt's Authoritee!
:D

First off Welcome to FF.
As far as where you posted, I found this in SVT Performance so that's the right spot. The Moderators on this site will move a post and let you know if you are in the wrong spot so don't sweat it.

OK In order of most bang for the buck
Tune: either Predator or SCT will give you the best drivability.
There's a sticky on it at the top of this forum:
SVT owners: Post reviews of your Tune!

Borla seems to be the exhaust of preference, but you can do a search on this forum for exhaust. Here's some that I turned up.
HKS Exhaust

It may be worth it to also put in an ORP or HiFlo Cat.

Hope that helps! Let us know your upgrades as you put them on.
Oh, and ANY mod is a mod, at least your wallet thinks so!
