From what I've read on this forum, stay away from duraflex.

As for intake, you can't go wrong with Vararam or Cold Air Inductions CAI.

You should get a Magnaflow resonated x pipe to reduce any rasp you'll get from exhaust systems. It'll sounds good even if you remove the mufflers and just replace it with piping.

He has a 2012. No Vararam for him. I'd go with Cold Air Inductions definitely.

I would stay away from duraflex completely.

Then yeah, CAI brand CAI is really good.

My friend has an LFX with a muffler delete and it sounds a lot better than my other friend with an LLT with a muffler delete. Change the piping from the resonated x pipe to the tips to 2.5" or 3". That's if you want a pretty loud and nice sounding exhaust.

If you want something quiet, go with Magnaflow or Borla. I went with Magnaflow and it sounds pretty good.
