For prior years the COBB SF intake is "possible".... but not optimal.

If I were you I'd spend my money somewhere else. Like was mentioned earlier in the thread. If you want to spend $300 something on an intake and a such for little to no gains then go ahead, but why not save a bit more and get an AP? From what I've heard Stage 1 is tons of fun. Just my thoughts.

As for loud cars and unwanted cop attention? Having had two very loud vehicles, a 00 Celica GT-S & 05 F350 that were both straight piped, I would much rather be under the radar from now on, maybe I'm just getting old ha

If you get a cat back exhaust you dont need a tune. And there is nothing short of switching to a blow-thru-setup to solve the issues a vent to atmosphere type of BOV cause. So do you want a performance car that performs well (without "cool" sounds), or one that performs like a turd (but sounds "cool")?

It's the "midpipe" back.... Most connect to the DP and go all the way back unless you buy an "axle-back".... Which I don't think they make for your ride.

Anything but a catback and possibly an intake (which I wouldn't chance the intake).

The only axleback that I know of for the 3rd gens is the Nameless Performance Inc. Store . But, I really don't like idea of eliminating the mufflers.

Then again, replacing the intake on the 2008 is supposed to free up quite a bit of power from what I've gathered. Might actually be worth the tune (with a couple other parts).
