Get the CAI first.

That way you can enjoy the benefit of the additional air in and realize the full benefit of the programmer as your next mod.

Do you have an exhaust already? If not, I'd suggest that be your next mod with the programmer to come after that.

Got true Dual Cherry Bomb Extremes on mine too (; Copy Cat, I LOVE THEM! Got my resonators deleted also. It is different from the normal Magnaflow or Mufflex you see all over this forum which I like to be different.

Here is my sound clip, make sure to click HD so it is in good quality.



To answer your question, CIA and headers like another member said. From there get a tuner and be done with it. That right there will give you enough grunt to make up for that lift and tires also give you a bit more pick up over stock ride height and tires.
