You should get a header back exhaust. Then cams and a tune. That should be enough for a while.

get all of that hot air out. header, exhaust, if you cant do both at the same time just
start with the exhaust. Happy modding!

Exhaust also, all those other engine parts will be worthless if your car cant breath.

ok, so figurin' about a $300 budget, what kind of exhaust should i get? i heard trubendz is pretty decent quality and relatively inexpensive

and will full exhaust systems be quieter or louder than just an aftermarket muffler? i have the stock resonator and muffler cut out, and a muffler on the end, which is pretty loud and deep, but not too much. i don't have to turn my radio up to full blast to hear it, but i love the sound i have with this muffler. any ideas?

Header will give you more gains than exhaust overall, but exhaust first. Then header. Unless you can swing both at the same time.

Header ends up giving around 7-10whp on a car with intake and exhaust.

i have a question that is exhast related....

i want to get a exhast as well, because i have the intake, TB and rear sway bar already. But i dont have the set up to install the exhaust on my own. I know part of the fun is doing things yourself, but i cant in this case. so.....

About how much should i be paying for someone to install a cat-back exhast for me. And is there any place in particular that anyone can suggest. I was thinking about just going to meineke or something like that. But any other suggestions, thanks.

it is bolt up but you have to cut the stock exhaust off.

i seen that video before, but i wasn't sure how loud it was, i didn't know how high or low to turn up my volume. it sounds pretty sweet, though. i just wonder how it would sound with headers

Exhaust, you need to let the car expel all the air that its breathing in better with the intake you put in. That's my next upgrade as I've already done the intake with a Steeda CAI. I'm planning on an MBRP cat back exhaust system myself.
