    I'd skip the BOV, there's no real benefit, unless you like the noise. They tend to leak as well which can create issues with an otherwise good tune.

    Cobb stage 2 to start... It makes a noticeable difference for power.

    Not the best advice. Stick to a turbo back exhaust and a tune. If you are getting a custom tune than maybe an intake. Just depends on your budget

    Drive the car for a few months and then flash a stage 1 map and after you get bored with that flash a stage 2 map with a downpipe install...
