What to do first

Going to modify the 2010 V6, should I do duel exhaust first or a CAI and tuner combo

I would go with the cold air intake and the tuner. the dual exhaust will work better once you already have the CAI installed as more air will be able to be sucked in and put through the dual exhaust

If you want power, do the cai and tuner first, but you can do the exhaust at the same time as all 3 will work very well together as you will be increasing the airflow so the exhaust system will def help expel the gases faster meaning even more power. then do gears and you will really feel the torque coming off the line,

If it is a Manual you need to do this first thing.

Get a Barton or better yet A Steeda or even better a nice sturdy MGW shifter to replace the stock one before you mess up 2nd gear. All the power in the world is not good unless you can go through the gears without causing a problem. If I had a stick this would be the very first thing I would change. Second would be to put on a good oil catch can.Then Mufflers and a CAI would come next.

Huh? I've had my stock shifter for about 2 years now and it works absolutely fine. Goes into every gear smooth as butter. I can also power-shift through all gears no problem. Just because some people have problems with there shifter doesn't mean they all have problems. If your having problems shifting, then yes, that would be good information.

+1 The stock shifter is pretty good, its the pathetic shifter bracket that's the real problem.I changed it out for a Barton bracket and it feels so much better!

I would do Gears and tuner to start. But it really depends how far you want to go with you mods. That's the first thing you should determine. Things like just Axel backs give almost 0 gain and are just for sound.

+1 Gears and tuner are the best bang for your buck, IMO.

If i had a 2010 4.0L engine i would buy a X-Charger Hi-Po Supercharger Kit for $4,969.99 from American Muscle.....and call it a day.

They're a lot of Turbo's and Superchargers made for the 4.0L.......Just saying
