Oh...toughy. I would say CAI is about 280-380....our Trinity was 500. Is money a deciding factor for you?.....if not.....CAI.

That's what I was thinking, Dro. Let her breath, right? You get the growl as well. I think the tuner/programmer is more detailed, so get everything done before you detail the engine to your specs. Just my $.0182549 and 1/2.

I went with a programmer first

edit: After reading a few posts it seems there's not much of a noticeable difference with the programmer unless you have an intake and exhaust.

I would say the CAI air...that way when you get the cash for the programmer it will be worth it more and be more noticable!!

its always best to do one upgrade at a time
if you do 3 upgrades at once, how do you know which upgrade made the difference(s)
