Default New guy with a few Q's.

Hello all. I've been reading the forum here, and you all seem pretty knowledgeable. I have an 05 Dream Cruiser Series 4, auto. I'm wanting to do some mods, for more power when I want it, and better gas mileage when I want it. My thoughts were, a k&n, the turbo xs dual stage boost controller (set one for gas mileage, one for performance), with an aem digital guage. I was also thinking about getting the diablosport predator. My question is, can I use the predator in conjunction with the dual stage boost controller? I read that the predator does boost control. Is there any point in having both, or will one override the other? I'm clueless.

Also, all of the threads I've read say that the mopar bov is basically nothing but a noise maker. Are there ANY bov that I can put on that would have any benefit? Thanks in advance.

No. I don't, but here are some pictures of one. They are all completely identical. Only option was manual or auto. All the same color exterior, interior, and same wheels.
