What should be my first mod?

Hey everyone.

Just picked up a new 2016 GT premium. The first few mods i would like to get is the ngauge tuner with the Lund tune, the corsa sport cat back and CAI. My question is do I need the exhaust and CAI before I put the tune on or can I get the Tune first?

Thanks.

1. ngauge tuner with the Lund tune...keep your money in your pocket.....if you aren't comfortable with tuning the car yourself, find a good local mechanic with a dyno who does know how and has references.


2. Corsa sport cat back........if you like the way it sounds...ok, but most good local muffler shops will build what you want for less $


3. CAI.....you aleady have one...thre is no gain, just looks


4. The exhaust & CAI should have no effect on the tune........only if the CAI has some really bad engineering/design where the senor locations are soooo far off from the oe that they won't read/respond correctly

Thanks beechkid for the info. The reason I like the corsa is because it does not have any drone. I know they cost a lot but I really don't want the drone in the cabin.

a good muffler shop can build what you want with no drone..............30+ years on my vehicles alone...and no drone using allied resonators

The last time I went to a muffler shop I paid an arm and a leg to have them replace two cats and two cut old "tips" off and weld new ones on. It was this past summer and it was over $300. I imagine if they did made a mid-pipe and added allied resonators and the tail pipes it would've been an easy $1k. $1k spent on sound it's too much.

Holy crap! Just had two allied units replaced after 19 years on my wife's cougar...including the new chrome tips the price was $180....and this is in los Angeles......but I know of a bud of mine in Palm Springs got ripped off and paid $300 each (with no tips) just slipped in as replacements......he could afford it....and there was really no choice as far as price as all the shops he called wanted the same price!

I bought a new 2015 GT Premium 50th anniversary model and the very first thing that I added was the oil separator kit. I got a JLT but there are others available. They definitely help to keep the insides of that new motor cleaner. You'll be surprised how much oil accumulates in there over time that would otherwise be going into your intake. Installation time is less than 5 minutes and takes no tools.
