Debating next mod

So I have an 07 e93 70k miles with Dinan stage 1, Dinan intercooler, Dinan exhaust, and Dinan carbon intake since day 1. I was unfortunate to have no oil cooler and am considering doing the stett stage 2 and jb4. Can I run jb4 on top of the Dinan or do I need that to be removed first and is there an suggested supplemental mods I should be looking into?

I'm relatively new to the forum and have been reading a bunch but want to get some opinions from those who have experience with these mods.

Catless Downpipes seem to be the only thing you're missing for FBO. DEFINITELY get an oil cooler as soon as you can.

If you're not tracking your car an oil cooler is not needed. I have 75k on my fbo, meth xi and oil temps are never of concern. If it was a $500 part then I'd consider it but for $1,500 it's just not high on the list of mods.

For now get rid of that dinan stage 1, its probably not giving you anymore than 25whp. Jump on a jb or procede as your next mod.

+1 Even in the vegas heat this summer I never had problems with my oil temps and I don't have a cooler. I also considered it a must have until it was 120 out and my oil temps were still fine.

So do I need to have the dealer uninstall d1 or can I just have the jb4 on top of it.

Unless you get an answer earlier, I'd say call DINAN, COBB, or e-mail BMS to ask about that.
And as far as the next mod, the best one it seems would be catless downpipes.

You've got black friday. ~500 might get you the ER Oil cooler during black friday.
