Good mods for a 2012 automatic ss?

Hey guys I'm kind of a noob at this stuff so I need some help. I really wanna supe up my camaro, but just have no idea what to do. Mainly, if possible, I wanna make the cars exhaust note louder, but I'd also be interested in anything cool that would increase performance.
Thanks!

If you aren't worried about warranty and looking to get a nice sound from you car, a CAI and full exhaust with tune would be the way to go.

I say if sound is first priority, then do headers + a cat back system. That will give you some extra power and a better sound. If you really want some more get up and go (torque), go for some new differential gears like the 1LE's 3.91! Those will really throw you back in your seat when compared to your stock car now! Not to mention if you just buy the just the gear and pinion and have someone install them, you're only looking at ~800

You can do it yourself or bring it to a reputable muffler shop in your area.
