Talking Buying advice for a broke guy

Hey guys, just wanting some input on what I should get next. I'm getting a belated fathers day gift, but the wife is putting a cap on expense. I'm currently running the 250 tune, so here are the choices. The 275 tune, the new AFE stage 2 si, (I currently just have a pg7 drop-in), or a MBRP dpf back exhaust kit. If you could pick one, which would you choose and why? Id like to have all at once, but can't afford them!!

AFE Stage 2... You won't be disappointed with that choice. The turbo will love you.

So does the stage 2 flow that much more air than just a drop in?

i'd go for the intake since the dpf back exhaust is just more for looks, you'll see a boost in performance with the CAI

Flo-pro 5 inch to a 6 inch MBRP tip and spray the last section of exhaust with black paint. Cheaper and looks the same.

Do you still have your DPF? If I'm not mistaken the 210 and higher tunes don't run a regen cycle so your DPF would plug off.
If you don't have a DPF the intake would be the best bang for the buck. To run the bigger tunes you will need the airflow.
If you still have the DPF then get a downpipe back exhaust (as long as warranty is not an issue).
