My first mods-what next?

Hey all,
Yesterday I installed a Steeda tune and CAI. Today I put on a strut tower brace and scoop (doesnt do anything but look cool.) I have 4.10 gears waiting to go on. What should be my next mod to my 13 auto? BTW, the sound and the seat of the pants feel is amazing.
Thanks
Randy

It sounds like you have the exact set up I'm going to have on my 2013. I'd look into getting the Magnaflow Street series catback's with long tube headers and x-pipes. I love the deep growl my magnaflow's give off every time I start my car.

Considering this exact mod as my first as well. How much difference in engine/exhaust sound, and power did you notice?

JRock,
I cant wipe the smile off my face. When sitting in park it revs to 5000 with ease. The car actually goes through first gear really quick. When flooring it, it gives off a distinct roar and the car moves out so much better. Its hard to explain without using a dyno, but I am sure that with the Steeda setup, i freed up some horses. I didnt notice a difference in sound at idle, though.

Next will come exhaust and the final goal is to either turbo or supercharge the car.
Randy

Thanks for the detail in your reply. HP numbers only mean so much until you feel and hear the difference. Did your tune require the 91 octane fuel? Just curious if there is a big difference between 87 and 91+ when combined with the tune.

Also, what are you looking at for the exhaust? I have been researching the BBK longtube and x-pipe combo. Sounds like that can also free up some power.

Havent really looked at exhaust yet. Im running 87 octane but will try the 92 when I fill up again. I think you will be pleased with the Steeda setup-highly recommended.
