First off if someone has already asked this just delete it I can't use the search tool on my phone for some reason lol any way I got my 05 sunfire last month and I want to build a budget daily driver/weekend warrior so which would be the better first upgrade? Cai or exhaust system? Or is there something better?
intake is cheaper and easier to install. I'd go that route first, look on ebay for cheap intake, just use the pipe, the filters are usually garbage. then buy a AEM or K&N filter.
Should be able to use search from phone, I can....

Just start with aem cold air intake will give you what you want a nice growl at open throttle and a more ballsy launch ,I WOULNT DO EXHAUST UNLESS YOU GET BOOST! Otherwise you will end up losing low end torque whiich is nice to have if you want to beat that annoying little honda to the next red light!
I wouldn't necessarily agree with what Black Mantis said. I had a full 2.5" exhaust on for ~6-8 months before I installed my blower and if it lost power, it was a negligible amount. That was with a short ram intake and some tuning, and it felt pretty peppy for being lightly modded.
I WOULDN`T NECESSARILY AGREE WITH A GUY WHO DRIVES A YELLOW CAR! hihihi...
