Thoughts on performance mods

Well for Christmas I got some money and I'm wanting to get some performance mods for my mustang. I'm looking at getting:

CAI
Throttle body
Lowering springs

Would these be the best three? I have the money for all of them just wondering if there would be a better alternative than these three? I already have duel exhaust.

Always start with a tuner. Best bang for the buck.

Sluder4, $200? The chip is the cheapest one and it's $270 lol

Handheld is the better option as it allows a new tune for any adjustments through email instead of having to mail off a chip

For the extra $10 you spend going through Ortiz compared to bama it's well worth it.. I've had bama before ran 11.5 A/F on wide open throttle (was on a dyno) and drained gas during normal driving.. He's able to tune my built car better than bama could do for basic bolt ons rofl
