Sweet I have the same one, I'm sure you'll like it. As far as exhaust goes I'm taking it you have a single in/single out muffler....most guys on here do magnaflow but as long as its free flowing and not a baffled muffler anyone is good, its really up to the tone your looking for. My set-up is a si/do 22 magnaflow muffler with the magnaflow y-pipe. I wanted it quiet for road trips but added an raceland e-cutout when I want it to roar with a press of a button.

I've got the same CAI, had the dealer throw it in for free actually, and I swapped out the stock muffler for a Magnaflow--couldn't be happier.

How do you like your cutouts? How often do you actually use them? Are they worth the money?

Cutting out my shortier Maggie and adding the 22" Maggie (4" inches longer and 2" bigger in circumference) along with the Raceland e-cutout was one of the best decisions I made, just wish I did it to begin with. Don't get me wrong I like that aggresive rumble when driving in the city but not so much traveling on the Hwy because MDS made the 18" Maggie drone pretty bad. I'm sure some will say just kick in to manual mode and it will go away but why when you lose at least 1 MPG at hwy speeds. That's why I like this setup way better because when I feel like letting the exhaust rip I can press a button and when I don't I can press a button. Look I got my muffler & y-pipe from advance autoparts for $100 dollars with the coupon code "visa". Then the cut-out was $160, thats a total of $260 for parts. I took it to my local exhaust shop and they installed everything for like $130. With that being said I don't think you can even get a cat-back kit for that price. I know Chefred has cutouts on his truck and I'm sure he will say the same thing about how convenient cut-outs can be. Plus IMO from what I've experienced, at top end speeds an open cutout helps out but not so much on WOT launches.
