    In most cases (likely yours) the stock BPV and stock BCS are the best way to go.

    I've never heard good things about sticking a manual boost controller on scoobs. As for BOV...don't go there. The stock bypass valve returns air from the turbo into the intake manifold when your shifting, idling, etc. That's good, because that air has been read by the MAF sensor, which tells the engine "Okay, send this amount of fuel." a BOV releases that air directly to the atmosphere, thus making the MAF sensors calculations inaccurate, and causing your engine to run with less than ideal air/fuel mixture.
