Default decisions..

What should I get next on my '13 5.0? I have K&N CAI, Roush Axleback exhaust.. thinking of either going with kooks 1 3/4 headers and x pipe to finish the exhaust, or 3.55 gears and Bama tune..

You need a tune before going to long tube headers.

I imagine you'll feel more with taller gears, such as a 3.73 or 4.10, instead of the headers.

Not on these cars. Please refrain from giving out bad advice unless you actually know or own one of these cars. Someone might take you seriously and make a poor choice.

Think it would be wise for me to stick with 3.55's since this is my daily driver.. 50 miles to work and back

If he has 3.55's then it's the MT-82. Those come with 3.31's, 3.55's, or 3.73's.
Autos come with 3.15's only.
