Tune? CAI? Exhaust?

Hi everyone. I am a newbie here, but am headed to the dealer this week to order a Camaro SS. I want to do the typical bolt ons, but I have no idea what is available as I am a former Ford guy.
I searched for programmers to add some power via the computer but couldn't find much. Is there nothing available yet? What is everyone using? Any opinions on exhaust and a cold ait kit? Best bang for the buck and that classic muscle car sound?

Ok, so there is 3 tuning companies listed. So the only option is to send my computer in or take it to a HP tuners shop? Wow....big difference from Ford tuning.

currently there isnt a whole lot available. but you have to remember that this car is brand new. once some more tuners get their hands on the cars, they'll be able to throw out some handheld programmers for us. you could always get a full dyno tune

Almost any proefessional tuner that deals with gm stuff can custom tune your car.

Thanks guys. Being in Canada, my options for a local custom tuner that can do GM is pretty limited. ROADTRIP!

Thanks guys. I went to the dealer today and drove an SS. Wow....I tried not to show my excitement, but the sales guy had to know. A friends brother is the sales manager there, but he is on vacation until Monday, so I decided to wait to order because I know he will look after me.
For the record, my Mustang was a 97 Cobra coupe that made 639rwhp / 568ft-lbs at the wheels..... I didn't really see the light, I just really like the look of the new Camaro and now that I drove one, its time for a change. Monster power & torque isn't everything anymore (guess I am getting old).

Just found this on Facebook. Looks like SCT is working on a tune / device! I used their X3 device in my Cobra....worked awesome!
