step one:figure out what you want it to be when your done!!! if you don't set a goal and work towards it you will never have a car you are happy with. you will constanly wast money trying to have a working car in the short trem. so set a goal
next figure out what parts you have that can be use together to make the best setup possibale without excess cost or rebuying the same parts.
ie: you said you have cobb ap, sti pinks injectors and stock tubro and exuast. cobb offers maps that you can download to match your cars mods so look for options there eighter for a map that will work with your injectors(i'm running their 16g map on my 02 with the same injectors). and then just do turbo+big top mount+exhaust so that the car and map have a chance of working together.
from what you are saying about how the car is running it sound like the map is still for all the mods. I have run my car on the ap stg 2 map with pink injectors and it worked ok. a bit rich but nothing was close to blowing up. the boosting issues could be from vacume lines, or the little restrictor pill in the line to the boost controler. and the piping around the intercooler is key! if any of it is lose it will vent all your boost and flood out all the power. I know this from blowing off intercooler hoses. this is usally what causes the "let off the gas to accelerate".
are you sure the exhaust is stock? very unusal to run stock with any mod.
anyway the jist is you need to get everything ballanced out. the feul map not matching the car can cause all kinds of weird problems. and poorly installed componets are all bad.
if I were you I would check out the whole intake system for leaks and rember that it is under pressure.
the venting buy the stearing wheel could also be leaky intercooler if it isnt leaky fittings, sometimes the crimped on endcaps can leak.
Here's a guy with a stock BPV if you're interested.
