Do the CAI first, then the programmer will help you realize the full potential of the mods you have.

The Borla exhaust will work just fine. I'd keep it!

yup, that's how i understood it. he bought a dropin...didn't perform like he thought it would and wants a cai system instead. I agree with maddog, do a cai first. then the programmer (superchips or diablo)
