Default Order of Modifications

I know its sort of backwards, but is there anything wrong with getting a tuner, and tuning a stock truck THEN adding CAI, ported TB, headers, exhaust? Or course, I would "re-tune" as I add on modifications.

Nothing wrong with it at all. Though if that's the order you plan on going I would move the ported TB further down the list.

Not at all, though the canned tunes are pretty much fixed, so you can't really do all that much 'retuning' as you add stuff unless you're custom tuning (any kind of tuner available for the '15s yet?).

That's what I did. I ran the 93 canned tune with only a CAI. After the other mods I got a hemifever 93 tune.

nothing wrong with that. one of my first mods was a SC3815 running the canned 87 tune for a few years. that was many moons ago.

Only concern would be if the person custom tuning it for you charges for the retunes
