Koni struts & shocks this week, or tuner?

Got my full exhaust and CAI done. Now I need a tune because the car is running a little sluggish, and too rich. I'll run it on 93 Octane Race Tune

But I just saw very good deals on the American Muscle Website, and ugh...I don't know what to get. Do I buy myself a tuner that I've been waiting for ($400) for the car to respond better, and run a bit quicker, or do I spend 300$ on the Koni struts & shocks? Suspension is very important, and my suspension is running on stock struts & shocks with H&R Super Sports. Car's finally heading 90,000 miles.

I have put less than 2,000 miles on those springs. Not sure what to get. Give me a decision guys

If you are a daily driver, I would say get the struts and shocks first.

Suspension can wait.

Hey - Good question and seeing that the car is not going to be driven daily I think you can definitely get away with not overhauling the suspension for a few more months. It's not the end of the world but the ride quality will suffer slightly but it's nothing wild like riding on cut springs! Let me know if you're to have any questions about the Bama X4 Tuner or feel free to shoot me a PM!

I'm trying to make big power so unfortunately I need an 8.8 too. The 7.5 sucks. Ugh.

Tuner good for power but the shocks will help with the springs
