Either one of those tuners will work for a custom tune. It just comes down to how much you're willing to spend. Both will get the job done.

All I was told by my installer was be easy on it the first 50 miles. After that you're good to go. Also change the oil 500-1000 miles after the install. That's all I was told to worry about. You...

I would do what Jay says. He knows his stuff and does custom tuning himself. Not going to get a much better response than his.

BRH what did you pay for your converter if you don't mind me asking. I can't seem to find a triple disc for the 545rfe trans on ATS's website. If you have a link I would appreciate it.

Didn't even know aFe made headers for Rams. They look like shortys though. You will see some gains from them but don't expect a huge improvement.

You probably won't see much from doing a TB without an exhaust and or headers. I would look into LT headers or a tuner and exhaust to start.

You can always go with a new valve body. Those are supposed to firm up shifts quite a bit.

There hasn't been much with the 4th Gens and any cam really being worth it. I believe it's because its tough to tune them well. You won't see much power gains from just the cams yet.
