If you're going to swap out the intake, don't go K&N. You'd be taking a step backwards over the stock intake. A K&N intake is not fully sealed like the stock intake is and therefore is not actually a CAI. If you want to swap it out look at either the S&B intake or the Vararam. Those two are your best option. The other option (which will do you just as good) is to modify the stock air box. Throw in a drop in filter, add a secondary intake tube to the bottom of the box, and change the tube between the air box and the throttle body and call it good. That will do just as much for you as any aftermarket intake.

As far as a tuner goes I'd recommend the Diablosport Trinity with a Hemifever custom tune. Lots of guys on the forum swear by that set up and have done quite a bit of testing with a number of tuners and have found that to be the best set up. It's worth spending the extra money on over the Bully Dog if you're looking for the maximum performance that you can get.
