I highly suggest an intake from Cold Air Inductions
http://www.coldairinductions.com/
and headers from Texas Speed and Performance
not highly expensive like others, but still good

for tuning, myself and others on these boards have gone with these guys
http://www.jreperformanceparts.com/index.php
even with the mail tune.
As far as anything local, I didn't find any place during my search that did tunes that had good reviews (2 years ago)
I know for installing, there is a place in LC that installed my exhaust. Nice guy, loves camaros too.

Varam is a good one cause all the air from the front grill goes directly to intake, I have an adm intake enclosed, the reason I got adm is to get the air scoop, don't like to much the look of the varam in front like it better on the side but everyone is different

Headers dint go with pypes, they ate cheap and good, but Texas speed has some headers cheap great horse power, better than pypes

In tune don't recommend a shop here in el paso, Jannety racing can mail you one like gigs was saying, but if it was me I would drive to Texas speed install headers and get the tune from them

Punisher, hope you return safe. Probably won't be able to meet you when you return, cause I schedule to mobilize in Oct. I bought the Volant cold air intake and the pypes bomb muffler. Mine is an automatic. And I replaced the resonator with an x pipe. When you return you will meet everybody and see what they have done to their cars. Start shopping around, look at prices and design that way you will save some money.

Jose1003, I look up texas speed online. So i saw a nice exhaust cat back system for car under 500. Not really sure if I want to do headers... Thinking the Ram air intake and catback exhaust with a tune will do good and give me a little more of a kick.

Is it better then a Cold Air Intake from K&N. I have always used K&N, but saw this new intake and wonder if its better. I got link from here on forums for that intake.
I just got a generic K/N, but the intake Boricua has on his ride is awesome, I am waiting to get mine a little later, its a way better intake. you should talk to him about it.

No runs planned yet for Aug that I know of. There's a cruise to Ruidoso July 13th. We have a huge fundraiser car show July 20th and the Pinups & Pistons car show (Wounded Warrior fundraiser) Sept. 14th. But I'm sure something will be planned for Aug. prob our normal once a month meet n greet at Farley's and Caliche's in Las Cruces. Sadly Vince and I won't be here for it as we PCS right after the car show in July.

It's usually the second or third weekend so you should be good. We're headed to Whiteman AFB, MO lol. Basically middle of nowhere, teeny, tiny town. But at least I get him back after him being gone for 15 months
