    I don't know why I'm replying, but here goes...


    DO NOT GET A BOV. It will only cause you enormous grief. Intakes aren't needed on our cars either, your stock one is fine until you start pushing somewhere around 450 hp.

    The silencer delete is perfectly okay for you car, it will not cause harm.
    Do some searches around here, you'll find plenty of information on first mods to take, mod paths, etc.

    There's no replacement for displacement. Except for a fat ass turbo!!!

    +1. BOV NO GO. An SRI is OK, but get yourself some steady $$$ first.

    I got a GPMoto intake elbow to replace the silencer. I don't think it does anything whatsoever for performance, but I do get a little more turbo whine and bov noise. It's totally childish and ultimately pointless.

    Oh, and DON"T GET A BOV!! As DSMKilla said, you'll cause yourself grief.
