What mod I should get next

Right now I'm running procede v5 stage 2 with catless down pipes, fmic, and dci. I would like more sound and performance, but at the same time this is a daily driver and would like to keep the engine healthy and strong. I was thinking either a full dp back exhaust or diverter valve/bov + oil catch can. My question is, which one should I get to run stage 3 most effectively? Is the dv & occ THAT necessary to run stage 3 better? I know the occ won't do much, but it can help with collecting oil that could rob me of performance and the diverter valve could help with holding higher boost.

Replace secondary cats with vibrant resonators.

If you really want more power, meth is the answer.

Meth is definitely on my list, but I'd like to just go FBO before I do that and sound is what I want as well. Are there any performance gains and any noticeable change in the exhaust by replacing the secondary cats?

get a meth kit, oil catch can, and take off your engine cowl. youll get your sound, performance, and keep oil out your engine.

If you're not up for doing Meth, get a good chargepipe and diverter valves. OCC is a must on this car as well.

I went with an ER Charge pipe, Forge DVs and a BMS OCC. All fit and work very well.
