Best Tune & Order?

So, at this direct moment I have no performance mods installed on my 5.0. I I plan on getting a tune for it, but being a new owner to a Mustang, I am clueless as of what each tune represents and which one to pick. I am using my 5.0 for the streets, and about once a month at the track.
Before I upgrade my performance many are saying to get suspension work done and to get a new shifter bracket. I would also like to lower it about 1".
If someone could, please list in order the mods/upgrades I should install first before tuning, & what each different tune does and is the best for my situation! Thank you in advance MEVO(:

Agreed this is for sixers but ill say probably a CAI then do a tune. Most tunes that you can go with offer tunes for life when purchasing tuner (bama, mpt, steeda). I went with steeda, from those tunes mentioned in my opinion had the closest relationship with ford so I felt they were the safest. I got a 89, 91, and 93 octane performance tune. For steeda there isn't really a difference between a performance or street/race tune per their tuner. He stated: "Please don’t get hung up on labels on our tunes. The tune we supplied you with is a maximum performance tune that does not sacrifice driveability or play games with the drive-by-wire system like our competitors. We only do one tune for the car. We developed it on our dyno using a car just like yours. It is the best tune we can make." With that being said I have used both my 93 and 91 tune currently running 93. The torque and hp is noticeable in both more aggressive with the 93. This is my DD manual trans 2014 v6. Haven't used it for a full week yet both would say about 1 mpg drop if I could estimate with the swap from stock tune to 93 octane. Been running 93 octane in the car from day 1.......
