Was any thought given to doing the lower TGVs as well?...SC

Since you have an aftermarket IC and Chargepipe, I would do the J pipe as well. Think of it this way, your J Pipe is pulling air, your intercooler and charge pipe are pushing a lot more air in to the car. Add TGV's in you are pushing A LOT more air in than your stock J-Pipe can pull. You're really limiting your other mods with a stock J pipe that way as it can only pull so much from the great amount you are pushing. You will see a much higher torque to power ratio that way.
