New '13, what to mod?

Just bought a '13 GT. love it, but never planned to keep it stock. Seems there are a lot of educated opinions here so wanted to get some ideas.

I will pick up a second car (junker) before the winter, but this will be my primary vehicle for daily city driving. I also want this thing to hit 150,000+ miles so want to be careful how much I pull out of the engine with mods.
1. CAI. Used it on my F150s and an SS, but now reading that they allow huge amounts of dirt into the engine
2. Boss 302 intake manifold
3. Tune or Tuner (was thinking Bama, but have read mixed results)

What else can I do to a daily driver and what are your thoughts on the above?

Appreciate the responses here

You are gonna need a tuner if you add a CAI unless the CAI doesnt require a tune. Cats are a big restriction on these cars so if you want some extra HP go with a cat less mid pipe.

Axle back exhaust is a must.

SolidRRaxle,

Congratulations on the 13', if you want to post up some pictures we'd love to check it out!

These coyote motors are absolute animals & are reacting really well to modification. I always recommend CAI & Tune to anyone entering the modification game. We went with the AIRAID & Bama tune on our Gotta Have It Green 13' & picked up 30+RWHP! I also agree on getting a set of axle backs under there to get your pony rumbling. We've actually just released some sick videos of the beginning of our build, check it out:

Let me know if you have any questions or need assistance. We look forward to the opportunity to do business with you!

- Dan

Exhaust, #1 - Roush and be done with it!

Don't forget a shifter, too ... I just installed the Barton and bracket in mine and I feel like it was an excellent mod - and I had a pretty good stock shifter.
