Default New 2010 owner with questions?

I bought a 2010 GT a few weeks ago, used. I'm new to the mustang and have spent the past few weeks reading alot on this forum and here are the questions:

1) I've read that the new increase in HP for the 2010 model is because of a better CAI and therefore an aftermarket CAI will not give me much of a gain?

2) With the better 2010 in-take, will an SCT tuner, as a stand alone, give me additional HP vs adding an aftermarket intake?

3) I'm highly interested in a Detriot Rocker Cam from Brenspeed and was wondering what you guys/gals thought about that as a first upgrade? I plan on adding a Super Charger down the road. And what is a rough estimate of cost to have a shop install?

4) If you're in Georgia, any recommendations on a shop that can install the Cam?

Sorry for all the questions, after 3 weeks of reading, I couldn't really find an exact answer to these questions so I thought I would ask.

Thanks!!

Im no expert but if you plan on supercharging down the road then just buy the tuner and tune.

i have heard nothing but good things about brenspeeds cams but i believe with cams u also need steeper gearing. dont know if u have the 3.73 rear axle package or not.

i also have heard shop costs for installation are between 4-700 bucks depending on where you go.

do it up then. if i had the coin id definitely do cams and gears. Call around to some shops and see who gives you the best price. pretty sure your total price will be at least a grand for the cams+install.

if and when i do cams i will have a mechanic do it on the side for me. benefits of working in the car biz lol.

you need the tuner first tho.

our 2010's stock cai is very good. i just spoke to brenspeed this past week and asked him about cai's and they said don't waste ur money unless u get the jlt 110mm and even then they only see a couple horse gain. just get a tuner from brenspeed and use ur stock intake. he also said the stock intake is great with cams.
