IMO if you are going to get a tune you should also be considering the mid section. This is where the largest chunk of (somewhat) cheap power can be had and its a natural to do in tandem with the tune for many reasons. There are or can be issues with getting the car smogged if this applies though so you would want to read up on it.

The last you need to do anyways, you should have an overview of what is out there and the pro/cons of making different mods before you take the plunge. You'll get better results and have less issues.

One last thought, if you have any warranty remaining I would keep it stock for at least long enough to ensure that you have no problems on the car, sometimes it takes a little while to become aware of them. Best to get these taken care of before you start modding as that keeps the mods out of the equation at the dealership. Further if you have extended warranty or picked up a cpo car you might want to look at which mods can have what effect on warranty coverage and make a gut call as to your willingness to assume risk before you choose which way to go.
