I would absolutely do the injectors and maybe look into a fuel pump. The EWG is up to you; if you already have it, you might as well install it and get everything tuned together. Short of E85/meth, your stock turbo would pretty much be maxed out at that point.

I agree. Get a fuel pump, one step colder plugs, and throw everything on and get tuned.
I'm not into EWG setups, but if you already have it, might as well.
You planning to upgrade the turbo eventually?

I have a fp already (65c) and one step colder plugs. I am not planning on upgrading the turbo. Why aren't you a fan of ewg's?

Just preference really. I want my car to be 100% emissions friendly.
IWG & Catted. If I was building a track car or something that wasn't going to be daily driven, I'd might go catless and EWG. And I think I'd still reserve it for a larger turbo where I could stay out of boost more easily.

My specific demands for my car:
Catted Downpipe -> emissions friendly
IWG -> emissions friendly
TMIC -> so I can run a short ram intake since Philly gets its fair share of rain
UEL Headers -> to retain the boxer rumble

And if I ever do a larger turbo, it will definitely be a stock location turbo and still fall within the demands I just listed.

So you got a good fp and plugs. Get on that and post up your results! Sounds like a really solid setup similar to my future goals.

You could always PnP your stock VF52 down the road if you're looking for a little bit extra but not looking to blow your motor.

Hmm never thought of it from an emissions standpoint. Usually people don't want it because of the sound. After talking to my tuner (Agile Auto in MD), he recommends a 14lb spring, so it shouldn't open until around 15psi. Which is only when going WOT. He also said I should see around 330whp and 360wtq with this setup at 21psi on their Dynapack dyno, while holding 2 more psi to redline than with the iwg. I'm not sure if Dynapacks read high, low, or "accurate".

NJ state inspection/emissions might be different from PA. Catless & EWG wouldn't pass the visual inspection process.

And to stay on topic:

Hmm...how awkward for me. That possibility definitely crossed my mind. 50/50 shot. I'll lose every time. Lol.
Could've been worse. Could've called you "brah." My apologies.

Good to see somebody else running the sport grille.

I definitely prefer the sport grille. Mine's black which makes for a nice contrast with the white car:
