2010 mustang v6 upgrades. Tune before cai?

Hi guys im new to this website and was wondering if could get some help. So i have a 2010 mustang v6 and i'm putting some mods on it and I was wondering how to go about doing it. So far i've ordered an mmr stage 2 cai and an sct x3 flash tuner from AM with three custom bama tunes. I got the tuner before the cai and already installed the race tune (93 octane) and the car feels absolutely amazing. But the thing is... when i ordered the tune i didnt specify the mmr cai i just listed everything as stock. Now i want to put the cai on and i was wondering if i could just install it and it would be fine or if i have to tune back to factory settings, then install the cai, and then install the race tune again. I really dont know im pretty stupid with cars... any advice would be amazing. Also i was wondering if the 0-60 time would be improved with these two mods? thanks in advance guys.

i think whenever you upload a tune to your cars computer, it automatically removes the previous tune you had there, i wouldnt think there would be any difference by doing it the way you specified

CAI Tunes

First off, these 2 mods (CAI and Tune) are the most bang for the buck you can get for the new Stang.
In order to get the most out of the tune and your car, I would get a NEW tune from AM on their 'Tunes For Life' program which includes the MMR CAI and use it.
I am running the AM 91 Race Tune with C&L CAI and the response is amazing (no 93 octane gas around here).

Good Luck

yeah the shifts come quick and when u thro on some 4:10's it gets really fast for a v6. the 0-60 times will drop considerably. when i was stock i could run 6.3 with the od and traction control off. now with the frpp cai/93 oct race tune and gears with the od and traction control off i can get 0-60 in 5.2 very cool.
