Which order should I install my pile of performance upgrades?

I recently decided to dump a bunch-o-monay into my EFI-T100, printed out all of the instructions (thanks to everyone who included this stuff on the forum!!!) and now I don't know where to start! Please let me know which order I should install them for ease of install and sanity.

Toys Purchased:
1. British customs Performance package:
a. Predator exhaust (this can go on anytime)
b. Airbox removal kit
c. AI removal kit

2. Power Commander III

Just wondering why the Power Commander when you can use Tune ECU for free?? Triumph Twin Power can provide a custom tune based on your modifications for around $145.

Other than the power commander, that stuff can all be put on in a day. Getting the airbox out is the hardest part and it aint that tough....

Pull your tank seat and rear fender... then yank the AI stuff, pull the air box and install the elim kit... install the pipes...

Your on your own on the EFI tuning stuff.... never had to deal with it... carbs rule dude...

Just to bug you along with TnTri... you do know that you could have just "carved" the stock box and saved even more money along with not needing the Power Commander... right?

EFI is cake and there are likely maps out there for your config. Any 2 to 2 with AI and Airbox mod should work well I would guess.

I guess buy a map from here.

Kinda sucks ya have to buy one. I'm not used to that and a little surprised.

Consider shocks and fork springs early.

Have to agree the most important and easiest mod. The oem are not really up to much of a hike in engine performance once a bend comes up!
The fronnt end whether springs or intimaors will also improve braking by allowing you to use them to there fullest.

+2. The better the suspension, the more comfortable the ride. Smooth is fast (right Rich?).

I'd return the Power Commander and go with TuneECU. Then I'd recommend buying a tune from Pieman, he has a list meant to go with specific mods, including yours. Well worth the money, truly lets Bonnie's inner hooligan come out to play.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. If I return the PC, and go with the TuneECU, do I have to purchase an odb2 cable? How do I get the maps onto my ecu?

Is this the one I should go with? http://www.triumphtwinpower.com/ttp-obd-2-usb-cable.php
Which map should I load? http://www.triumphtwinpower.com/bonn...-efi-tunes.php

What suspension set (F/R) should I go with?
