What's next?

Hey guys, so I'm a little new to the world of cars. Still learning a lot but still trying to grasp as much knowledge. Right now my 2013 GT has an upgraded after market axle back 3 inch exhaust pipes. I'd really like to hear some opinions of what I can do next. Also I drive this car daily and I plan to save up for a super charger. As of now I think some shorty headers are a must. Is there anything else I can do to get the power I want? As for the super charger I plan on getting the rough phase 3, comes with a after market manifold and cool air intake. Any suggestions?

Car already has a tri-y style header on it.

Tune, and suspension, good set of tires for now.

Don't know much of tuning, could I just buy a bama tune on AM. Other than that I don't really know much about tuning.

Why do you believe headers are a waste?

Long tubes are the only way to go if you're buying headers looking for a power gain.

I see, but long tubes would be a bad idea if I were to invest in a super charger?

Why? If anything they'll compliment them.

Instead of just asking random questions I think it would be wise for you to do some research on any and all topics. It would be of great benefit to you.

I have, but still I'm not taking any classes or have any friends who are car enthusiasts. Instead The Internet has been my teacher. If I were to get long pipes I would need to invest in mid pipes. I've also read somewhere when it comes to turbos and super charger, going with a short tube would give you maximum power gains. With long tubes the way it was explained to me was its not comparable with each other and may cause me some trouble down the road. That's why I felt like I needed to get some short tubes for a supercharger down the road.

The car has short tri-y headers on it, from the factory.
1 7/8 Longtubes will be a wise investment when going to a supercharger.
