    I would revert completely back to stock. The cat-back isn't going to have any sort of impact on performance other than noise. Don't even leave the intake on.

    Disconnected the MAF?

    Good move on the pump and injectors...but what about intercooler? Stock one is going to significantly hinder your performance.

    Please please please, stay out of boost until you get it tuned. Do not get on it.

    Yeeeeeah...what Zach said. This is a very, very STUPID move. Now your car has no idea how much air is being pushed through the intake and no idea how to compensate by adding/decreasing the amount of fuel it needs. If you don't put it back to stock I'm sure your next thread will be titled, "HELP MY MOTOR BLEW!"

    Okay so stay out of boost, along with the fuel pump and injectors get a new intercooler, MAF and then tune?

    No. You have done nothing but harm the car. Take the mods off, flash the stock tune, and drive on that until you can install the injectors and fuel pump. Or just don't drive the car at all.

    Do it right or don't do it at all. You need to return the car to stock and then get all of the mods installed at the same time and the tune to support them added before you drive it.
