    A couple things...

    The Turbosmart recirculation valve would save you a bit of money vs GFB, and I'd trust that one more.

    You'll need the accompanying airbox to go with the Cobb SRI (which adds an additional $115), or go with the AEM (additional $60).

    I'd urge you to go with the Invidia downpipe with two bungs (additional $15) and consider picking up an AEM UEGO, since it'll be easiest now to install a WBO2 in the car. Skip out on the shifter mods just yet, and pick them up down the line.

    Have you heard the Perrin exhaust in-person? I like the Q300 on sedans, which is $150 cheaper than the Perrin you have selected.

    I think that's a mistake, considering everything you're already doing. Push things off for a bit, but when you go to get a custom tune, I think injectors/pump would be well worth your while.

    They will really allow you to make the most out of your modifications once they're installed. Install your downpipe/TBE and intake and flash the appropriate S2 map to tide you over, but I strongly urge you to reconsider not installing an upgraded fuel system. There's a good bit of power to be made with the parts you have listed if you have proper fueling, which you don't on the stock system.

    At stage 2 you will be maxing out your injectors and pump I would make them a priority over a catback and even intake. The stock catback is fine for your power level goal so is the intake, a high flow filter is enough for the 320hp range.

    Especially with the fuel system to support it, an intake should be on the car when he gets a custom tune.

    the OP is basically planning the same thing I am so might as well add to this thread, can you guys specify on the turbosmart BPV? which model?

    I plan to retain the stock exhaust so I'm thinking the Cobb DP is the best choice in that case.. I just don't want to attract cops on my daily driver

    so after reading the thread it seems the reliable and powerful mods to get are (if you retain stock exhaust):

    Cobb DP
    Intake
    Aftermarket BPV
    Aftermarket TMIC
    Pro Tune

    for the moment i'm content to only push it to 17 psi just because its been stated that going to higher might call for upgraded TMIC and BPV

    on that note what is the capacity of the stock injectors? I see recommendations to upgrade so what are their limits?

    There is one recirculating valve on RSD for Turbosmart.
