    Welcome and a pre-emptive congrats!

    A catback essentially is for noise aesthetics. The more knowledgeable guys can feel free to correct me, but I don't think with the 05's that an intake will do much for you power-wise either. It will, however, let you hear the stock bpv better, which if what you want from a bov is sound, you should go with an intake instead. See here for why.

    Again, others feel free to correct me, but with an intake and a catback, you're looking at a stage 1 tune. Depending on price, a custom tune may not be needed.

    You may want to look at an up-pipe and a down-pipe (which would put you in stage 2 tune area, and maybe more deserving of a custom tune)
