CFM Throttle body and Tune VS. Stealth exhaust

So if I researched correctly, Toms tune plus the TB should be around $500 while the FSwerks stealth exhaust is about $500. I currently only have the steeda sri and I was wondering which should I do first? Would the tune really be worth it with just the intake and TB?

All suggestions are appreciated

if you put the throttle body and tune together, it just seems like youd get similar gains (if not more) to the exhaust.

I'd do the exhaust & tune. A cheap mod= a oil change w/ a bsd plug. Holds more oil & removes rotating mass & static weight.

Do the exhaust then, if your on a $450. budget, that way the exhaust is wrapped up.>>> I'd for sure to a balance shaft delete plug. Its the cheapest performance mod you'll get.<<<<<<
