What makes more sense as a first major mod...

I have heard that both CAI and exhaust will substantially boost the performance of a V6 Camaro. My question is if you had to choose one over the other, which would you guys recommend first.

I personally would go with a cai before any exhaust mods.

I went axle back exhaust first and a drop in K&N, I plan on going to a supercharger though in the future and not sure if CAI will fit with it.

CAI makes setups for both SC cars and standard. Of course you could always mod your standard CAI that you bought long before you went SC, to fit so you don't have to buy a new one!

CAI does not have an intake to fit a supercharged v6, only v8...

OP, if you don't plan on supercharging in the near future, go with a cold air intake first if you're looking for "more power". You will get little to no power increase from changing the exhaust, the only thing that will change is the sound (which is good, but is it worth the money?)

For me it was definitely exhaust first. I just wanted to hear something.

There is a company that makes a cai that will fit a supercharged engine as well as a NA engine. I think it is Roto-Fab but I'm not 100% sure. Even if you do get a cai you can always sell it when you go forced induction...or you can keep it for in case you return to NA in the future.

The OP, as well as Paraphlax both have v6 cars... No company makes a cold air intake to fit a v6 supercharger kit that is currently available on the market.

Both CAI Inc, as well as Roto-Fab do make a cold air intake that will fit a v8 car with a roots type supercharger only.
