as far as exhaust goes it has been suggested by other members before to do a youtube search and listen to clips of exhaust to see what you like the sound of

nothing worse then spending a little or alot of money and then be disappointed with the sound

there are alot of CAI's out there. search cold air intakes on the forum and start reading about other's experiences and form your own opinions as to what you think may work for you. get your list together and start calling around for prices or check out the sponsors here.

keep your budget in mind when you are ordering, but don't sacrafice what you want either. if you have to order a couple things or one item at a time then do that instead of ordering it all at once and then being disappointed cuz you were not able to get what you really wanted

i would go CAI first
then exhaust
then tuner

but these are just my opinions lol. hope some of this helped you

congrats on your car

welcome to alberta we eat cow, drill oil and rope calves

wants to push you down a flight of stairs to see if you are like a slinky or if you bounce like a ball... either way, I am quite sure I will be amused

hehe perma grin always activated I also wanted to add I heard the headers are decent so unless your gonna go with long headers its best to just leave in the stock ones. It sounds like your only lookin for a catback exhaust so your all golden!!

I did the GMPP Axle-back exhaust, then a AIRAID CAI, then a tune. I have the manual LS3, I am pretty happy with the sound & performance increases of my mods so far. There are other members who have posted better gains using other manufacturers, but I really like the sound the GMPP exhaust puts out, and I don't need every neighbor to know when I come down the block if it's 3am and I don't want attention. Like kitty said, do the reasearch, Powerfreak has posted some really good results from Vararam, but his was a prototype/beta model, from what I understand there are still restraints on thier CAI. So keep in mind even though the LS# engines have been around quite a while that you are still in 2010, and that is the year your car is, there will be advances and better products as time goes by, don't be too antsy to get through the bolt-ons, it is going to be like a computer for a while, what you buy today will be out classed in 6 months.

i love borla for the catback. but depends how much you want to spend. borla and corsa are on the higher end. flowmaster and magnaflow would be better choices on the lower end(money wise i mean)
