CAI or tuner

I have a 2016 Ram with the 5.7 Hemi. I'm trying to decide. Do I get a CAI or tuner first? Any help

Tuner will benefit you more than the intake, but the intake is a third of the price.

Intake and exhaust for less air restriction are the first steps.
Then it's on from there.

YES. To a point, your PCM will adapt. Free up the exhaust and the PCM will adapt to a point as well. Then hold on.
