New G6 owner looking for some advice and help

I just bought my G6 about a month ago and want to add some HP to it. I have a 2008 G6 GT, V6 3.5L. I do not know a whole lot about tuning cars or anything like that but I do love them. I just wanted to know what mods I should start with and then which ones after that. Anything with the engine, exhaust, etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

If you get in the racing mood a quick thing you can do to remove 100 lbs from the G6 is to take out the spare tire and keep you gas tank low.
Spare Tire & Jack = 30 lbs......11 gal fuel = 70 lbs

Thanks guys. I appreciate the advice. Now what would be the best bang for my buck with the intake, exhaust, and tuning?

Keep in mind that the spare tire in the G6 also serves as structural support in the event of a rear end collision.
