New 2012 time to mod!

Looking at getting few things done to my new 2012 V6 A6.

Already in mind is Catch Can, exhaust and CAI for now.

What's the recommendation on CAI?

My exhaust I'm going with is 1 chamber flowmasters with resonator delete, but trying to determine where in the piping I should put the mufflers?

Go with the wildly popular CAI (Cold Air Inductions).
You could wait on Vararam but they may be a decade or so getting to the 2012, no one knows for sure...

CAI's intake is the best looking traditional intake on the market hands down.

CAI's is my first choice!!! But get a catchcan on it before you get many miles on...save you trouble down the road.

There's no point in waiting for Varram because they went to Cold Air instead of Ram Air and I guarantee Cold Air Inductions and Roto - Fab are way better because they have had more time to test and tune their CAI

If you buy a exhaust system that is made for the Camaro they come with hanging brackets or mounting brackets pre-welded on there so you dont have to worry about doing that yourself

I like the Injen CAI (long tube) not the short ram. If you want a short ram, go with CAI.
