Recommendations for Building HP in the right order on my 2016 435i

Hey All, I'm trying to build HP in my N55 powered 2016 F36. I started with trying to help her breath easier. CTS Cold air intake, followed by a Custom Axleback Exhaust and a VRSF Catted Downpipe. I now have a Racechip GTS installed and i feel quick, but wonder what you much more informed FSeries N55 owners would do next? Ignition? Fuel? Thermal Help? I was thinking a larger intercooler and charge pipe. I want around 450 reliable horses and then when she's not my daily driver getting crazy with a Ghassan engine swap, but for the next couple of years, I just want to dust some 5.0's.

Thanks in advance.

Get the cp swapped asap. Its a ticking time bomb even on stock boost. Also need fmic if running anything over stock boost.

Ditch the racechip. Get a proper flash tune like mhd or bm3.

Your bolt ons will then let you run stage 2 tunes. That should get you to around 390-400whp.

Will need a stage 2 turbo to hit 450hp at the wheels. Most popular is Pure Stage 2. You will be mid 400s on pump gas with ps2. Low/mid 500s with fueling upgrade.

I recommend reading up on ghassan before buying. I've read a fair amount of negative stuff about them.
