I've installed pypes lt's, easy, just time consuming. You'll need a tune to turn the o2 sensors off, and to take advantage of the better flowing exhaust.

I don't have an intake yet, would you recommend the intake and tune first then the headers with a new tune or vice versa

Skip the Cai, stock Cai is as good as any on the 11+ cars. Get the tune when you buy the headers.

OP has a 2010 per his post, but he's still good. They actually introduced the "factory cai" used on the Coyotes in the 2010 redesign.

Also, since the 05-10s don't have wideband O2 sensors like the 11-14, MIL eliminators can be used in place of a tune if it's not part of the OPs plan. I don't think there was much left on the table as far as tuning with those coming out of the factory with 315HP on that 4.6 mod motor.

Those are relatively quick for a grocery getter. Is he stock? I saw a 135i put down 483RWHP on a dynojet the other day, and it's the same engine and turbos as the 335i.

You'll smoke him. I have a 135i and it is no where near the power of my 5.0. Now, when you get to the track... Be on your A-Game, I'm not sure how much heavier a 335 is than a 135, but they handle very well. Do you know what year it is? They switched from a N54(Twin-Turbo) to a N55(Twin-Power Turbo) for both of these cars in 2012. N55's made about 20-30 more HP.

Yep ... I still don't understand why they put the 2010s in with the Coyote section (other than to mirror American Muscle's marketing layout). It breeds massive confusion. Most of the expertise on the 3V is in the 05-09 section, whereas the 2011s have a completely different engine, trans, suspension, brakes, ecu ...
