Yeah, do the intake and exhaust first...next I would look at headers, throttle body and drag radials with a 27-28" diameter!

X2 for less than a 1000 Bucks you can be in the high 13's.
Intake, Exhaust, radials, throttle body.

Well i am heading to the track when it opens to get good baseline. Then I will install my vararam intake and will do a honest comparsion. Then hopefully someone will release a tuner for me test as well.

You can swap the OEM 4:10s threw the dealer..
But thats gonna cost you a lotttttt.
Honestly I would wait to do the gears till the end of your mod list.
There is some RCSB with 3:55s running in the 13's.

I too am looking into 13's. I am unfortunately at 2500 ft above sea level so that would be very hard. I know I can correct the time tho...

Anyway, I am not sure long tubes or programmers are out yet for the 12's. I think the exhaust ports are different from 2011 to 2012. I may be wrong. Camming it without a tuner and long tubes would be a waste in my opinion.
