Hello from Brighton Colorado!

Greetings everyone! New member and first time Wrangler owner. I just purchased a 2011 Wrangler Unlimited yesterday (I'll post a pic later). Since I'm so new to Jeeps, I'm hoping that I don't bother y'all too much with questions (and I'm sure I'll have many). Here's my first question: I've heard aFe has the best cold air intake and that this would be the best first mod I should make... trouble is, aFe makes more than 1 intake for my Jeep. How do I decide which one to go with? Is aFe the best? if not who?

OK, it's 3 questions...

Here's another question: My Jeep has the 3.8L 6cyl. Would replacing the exhaust manifold with a header be advantageous? I'm looking for the best bang for the buck in fuel economy, hp, and torque.

If I'm barking up the wrong tree, I welcome your advice for first steps.
