It is very possible that he was trying to sell you a stage 2 package (full TBE and AP).

Sounds like a good salesman to me.

It says right on their website that the removal of the first cat after the turbo is all that's required to run the stage 2 map. You can go with any of your listed options and you'll be fine, and your car will feel much more powerful. You might be leaving a few hp on the table, but if your goal is to look stock and have a quiet car, then it's worth it. I would recommend getting a protune to make sure your car is running safely.
