I would suggest an xcal tuner and custom tune to tie it all together and a header.

No tune not really sure how to go about that

What does removing the snorkel do?

Removing the snorkel provides better airflow to your cai. And a tune will make your car perform 10x better especially with your mods. Use the search tool there's a good thread on how to do your snorkel removal also use it to read up on tuners. Also a rear motor mount would be nice

I'm kinda stuck in the same boat you are in. Except I have a tune...

Maybe I am just not used to modding cars but the tune was underwhelming at best. Sure it is slightly more responsive but for 400$ I would have rather saved my money. It does sound like people get varied results based on how well your focus ran prior to the tune.
