Default Exhaust or intake with new programmer??

Im getting an Edge Evolution Programmer for my 06 xlt scab this week, and only have enough money right now for either exhaust or intake. Which one would work best alone with the programmer until I can afford the other? Any suggestions? Thanks.

Are you getting an evo or a gryphon? the evo you cannot choose between tunes, they are "canned". The gryphon is a rebaged edge that can be custom tuned. Do you have an aftermarket exhaust or intake? If you have one or the other then go with the one you have. Personally I would just wait and save the money to get all the tunes at once.

Like Boiler said if you don't have any custom tunes written on your edge it won't matter ...but agree with Cowboy...Exhaust will sound good

ya exhaust, you wanna do the exhaust first if your planning on both. the intake will take in more air but itll be restricted by the exhaust downstream

Get the exhaust and do the Gotts mod for less than $15.
