SO finally after lurking for a few years and having a purchase fall through due to being deployed I finally bought a 17' White ST1 (Hated the Recaro's plus cloth is better in the S.A. heat). Only thing i do wish i had were the HID's. I decided to sell my M235I (which I honestly lovedddddddddddd) and got a pretty solid deal of 18.5 with a Ford carbon fiber shifter thrown in for S&G's. I had decided to save a few bucks on payments/insurance and justified all the mods by telling myself this will be my play car and my upcoming M-3 will be my Reg car. So i have a plethora of items, dress and go, coming. Plan on using this to keep track of everything I'm doing and have planned in the future. Right now I don't plan on doing anything crazier than the Mountune 300 but realistically I'm sure ill go bigger turbo at some point. Decided to start out the MP275 route initially just to keep the warranty although its been kind of a pain in the ass to find a ASE certified shop to install since the Ford dealers were like WTF is Mountune. Finally found a shop PerformanceHQ in S.A (formally Lethal Performance) to work with and unless anything changes that's who will be doing my installs on the big ticket items for now.

Nice man,

If you already have all those parts then you would be best looking at ATP kits when you decide to go BT. If you were starting from scratch the mountune EFR kit is the best bang for buck, when on sale (like at the moment you can get it all for $2149 including a custom tune). I think all you need is a down pipe, but a local exhaust shop can do that. Oh and an intercooler is recommended obviously.

I went ATP kit through stratified with the GTX2867r and I absolutely love the way this turbo builds boost and pushes hard all the way to redline. Also can't recommend stratified enough. Alex and the guys have been such a help.

Good luck with your build!
