Now the fun really begins! The exhaust will give you a nice sound and some power, if you're doing more than just axle backs. The tuner will provide the power and the fun to drive factor. The CAI will give visual appeal under the hood and a nice intake sound. So, I guess depends which you are route is more a priority. Either way, it will make your car more fun to drive. Which usually results in lower MPG as it makes it harder to keep your foot out of the accelerator

First off, you should still have your drive train warranty.
Secondly, you must decide whether you want to improve sound or performance. If sound, go muffler. Should have no impact on warranty.
If performance, go with a tuner. I'd skip the so-called cold air intake.
Suggest you review some of the many forum discussions on the subjects.

Diehard I actually still have full warranty but undecided that it is over. It's time to start having some fun.

Thanks for the advice about the cold air intake, is there a better bang for my buck to start that am not looking at?

Go with a catback or axle back exhaust. The sound alone brings more of the fun factor. You'll end up driving your car a little more aggressive just to hear the exhaust. I know I do lol.

What's the major difference between the two?

First thing I did was add the Roush axlebacks. It made the car sound so much better!

Catback bolts on behind the catalytic converters. Axel back bolts on just behind the axel

IMO The best exhaust for the 3.7s are Borla S-types. They sound like sex trumpets..

I'm sure I'll get at least one other person to agree. SEX TRUMPETS...ASSEMBLE!!!

All I can say is sound quality and loudness is very subjective. You'll have to do a lot of research to come down to a muffler you think you'll like, then you may change your mind after you get it.
Also, from what different people say and based on many of the sound videos, it appears to me that you could probably find a muffler you like without going to high priced Borlas. The Borla S seems to be one of the favorites by many, to name just one.
As you'll find if you research it, is that many will add shorty headers to help improve the sound of the after market mufflers, as well as changing the mid-pipe. For example adding an H-pipe to deepen the sound.
Research, research, research. Everyone has their own preferences and opinions.
