The intake silencer and wastegate mods are a good start. I would wait to get a bov until you have done some other mods. You don't want an intercooler until you have a new turbo. Do a search and you will find out some good stuff for first mods. I would go with an up and downpipe. You will get some nice power gains with those mods.

I would definitely say don't do a bov, my buddy did a Greddy Type S and left it atmospheric and the car wouldn't hold and idle and if you run it recirculating you won't really hear it.

For that ~$200 get your self an up pipe and mbc, car will feel much more responsive. There is a nice list of mods around $200 that gain 10-15hp here and there, heres a few quickies:

Perrin Inlet Pipe
Up Pipe
Intercooler Hoses
Crank Pulley (please search about this though, the debate is ongoing)
Boost Controller
DIY Intercooler Sprayer

Edit: someone was/is selling a helix dp for $240, so add some down pipes to the list.
