^ Just commenting based upon what I witnessed at recent dyno/tune event. Guys who added cobb with little else done to the car, got very little HP ( 1 to 5) gain, whereas I got a lot (204 HP to teh wheels).
Other thing is, as you mentioned, is sound. If I did nothing else to my car, I would get the exhaust because of sound and get the short shifter because of feel. Both of these provide enjoyment everyday. I say start with the basics and then add Cobb on top of that to take all of the parts to teh next level. Just my 2 cents...

Yes but you need to get it tuned. Buy the AP and then go get it dyno tuned. You'll definitely get the most bang from that.
If you really want an exhaust then get a high flow cat. instead. More power and cheaper. Cat is ~10hp. Exhaust is 3.5-5hp at the most.

I agree with everyone else in that you should get the cobb ap.
Maybe also because i have a brand new one in box for sale.
if you are interested i paid close to 750 with tax from a local fizz and never took it out.
im willing to sell it for obviously cheaper than what it is new but contact me if you are interested
