ER and Vrsf are the best downpipe options I think. Wagner makes a fmic. Vrsf is supposed to come out with one as well but don't know when. I ran Vrsf on my e82 and quality was good and customer service is event better.

VRSF and best don't belong in the same sentence, unless best = cheapest crap you can find.

ER,AR or CPE on downpipe, Wagner on the intercooler.

FMIC won't gain power but it is definitely a supporting mod you should do for the other changes. DP + Tune should get you 45-50RWHP. You also should do chargepipe for running anything over stock boost, they are known to fail even at stock boost levels.

Yeah I have a ER Chargepipe already, first thing I did after getting a tune.

Car is already feeling quick... I reckon adding the DP + FMIC and a re-tune to adjust for these will make the car

VRSF DP from what I see is the only one with no additional chassis mounting flange. You definitely dont want to have the weight of your exhaust pulling on your turbo especially if you get rear ended it would destroy your turbo. You always want to have extra support on the DP so theres no stress on the turbo.
