What addons to buy first?

Does anybody have any dyno results for any of the below add-ons? I'm thinking of all of them, but wanted to know if anyone has seen results.
Even seat of the pants feel to give me an idea?

80 MM Throttle body,
Ported Intake for 80mm,
Intake Spacer,
Solo hi-flow cats,
MRT 2 mufflers,
Auto-Cal, or other brand tune,
CAI cold air induction. I do have this already.

The intake flows just fine as-is. Virtually zero gain to be had there, unless you look at "benchmarketing", so everything on the intake side is just $$$ in their pocket for little to no gains.
The same with the cats.
If you want to change the sound, sure the muffler swap will do that, but don't expect a huuuuge difference in power.

I'd concentrate on paying it off 1st. It'll give you a chance to get used to the car, and time to think about what you really want so you won't hack up your car and regret it later.

This probably isn't what you want to hear, but you asked for advice, not someone who agrees with you. It looks like you're having regrets for not getting the SS. The mods you listed come to about $3400, give or take. Add ~3400 to the price of your V6, and you'd have an SS.

Thanks for the reply patriopa. I had checked the marketing web pages for the add-on parts which advertised some gains on each, but honestly didn't expect to see much real world proof.
Just was wondering if anyone else had a different opinion. I heard a tune could add a little performance but $400 may be more $$ than worth it.
I do like the exhaust sound change after adding the CAI

Headers high-flow cats and a Dyno tune from a professional shop is your best bang for the buck. I don't know what year you have but kook's, BBK, stainless works and a few others sell them. Keep your mufflers. You should get anywhere from 25hp to 35hp conservatively at the rear wheel. If it's 2014 and later I don't think they make a header for it. GM change the design I read somewhere. I might be wrong dig around you might find something. They do make some nice forced induction systems. Walk before you run.
