    I'm not exacy sure what "Full exhaust through the catback" means... Is it a full exhaust or is it a catback?

    I would recommend you take some time to explore the link in my signature.

    No BOV ever. Who ever tells you that a BOV is a good mod is poorly informed.

    Also, it is best to search. As you can imagine we have 10 new members a day asking that same question.

    Get some some engine management like the Cobb AP
    And then get a protune which is a dyno tune to create a specific map for your car and mods.

    also make sure the up pipe has been replaced on the 03 there is a cat in the up pipe.
