Ww2 or tunes first?

OK so my plan was to get my Ts chip tuned with custom tunes, then I got looking around and want to put the wicked wheel on my Turbo, my question is what should I do first, with a baby on the way I don't have to much to spend. I plan on doing both at some point in time. What would you do first? The tunes or the wheel? I've already got an intake, exhaust, the chip, and rosewood stage one sticks. The chip is stock tuned.

Youd get more out of the chip being tuned for stg Is vs a turbo wheel.

Awesome that's what I'll do then! Another thing, will tuning help with towing? I just towed a 1st Gen Cummins home to utah from Wyoming and stayed pretty cool on my egts at about 60 but hills heated me up to around 1200 and to keep them lower had to slow down some

Tunes first...a wheel can be added later without needing to tweek tunes.

AND

Tuning will be the most important mod you do.

They may, but the tow tunes are designed to de-fuel loaded, and Intercooler would help as well with egt's but honestly while towing a fuel economy gain is possible but not likely

If you haven't decided on tunes, I recomend Tony Wildman or php.

I didn't think I'd get much towing for mpg, I'm more hoping for better just driving. (As long as I can keep my foot off the floor haha) and yeah I'm planning on tw tunes
