    Don't bother with the intake, concentrate on EM and a full TBE. Or what ever for the 08's. Look into Cobb and see what they have available. Your options may be a bit limited as yet, I'm not sure what's out for the 08's.

    I would try and avoid voiding your warrenty as fast as possible like others have suggested and get rid of the crappy sound system or apperance.

    New BOV(recirculated), TBE, and Cobb Stage 2.

    at least get the Cobb AP first, you will be happy.
    The stock BPV isn't very good. I don't think you really need a boost gauge until stage 2.

    then a turbo, injectors, intercooler, and a big maf or CAI. That would put you over 300whp easy.

    i think the stock tires are ok for the stock turbo. But they will need to be upgraded down the road. I am going to try drag radials on the rear this weekend.
