The Most Sensible Order of Mods

So, I'd love to start modding my V6 in the near future. I'd like to know what the forum peep's opinions are on the best order of modding.

I'm not well-versed in cars, but I can follow instructions really well . So with that in mind, what would be the best way to go, starting with a relatively easy mod, for getting some better power, stability and handling from a V6.

Thanks ya!

So many mods. First thing I did was get it to breathe better. Cold air intake and some exhaust work. Also there is now a tune for the v6 also PM me if you need any help.

I did exhaust, then intake, then tune. I was on the fence about getting headers before the tune. Ether would work. Tune would be more fun!!

Thanks. The exhaust and the intake are the two that I was thinking about starting with. I imagine the exhaust will take a while. Any reason you did the exhaust before the intake?
