    My current chain is comp>>Timmy>>TS808.

    The Timmy is set to edge of break up for mostly rhythm playing. The 808 is set to a medium gain for heavier stuff.

    I'm looking for something to push the Timmy into more saturation and also to cut through better. I had a Klone in front for a while but I felt it added too much low end/low mid.

    I'm looking for a strictly clean boost with a slight mid hump that will add another dimension to my clean sound when used by itself. I don't want a super mid heavy pedal like another tube screamer.

    Any thoughts?

    Keeley Katana. That's what I used when I had the Timmy on my board. Loved those two together.

    blues breaker based pedal like a Boss BD-2, Analogman POT/KOT (especially this in clean boost setting) or a JHS Morning Glory will probably satisfy your needs, just turn the gain down to taste.

    Put the TS before it.

    KOT/POT is awesome into it.

    A good treble booster with a mids option, like the Beano or Naga Viper

    Seems like switching the TS and Timmy order is the easiest and cheapest solution to me.

    TS> Timmy> TC Spark booster.

    There is a clean and mid boost toggle on the Spark, plus a bass and treble knob. By lowering both knobs, you can vary the mid boost from the pedal.

    When using the TS into the Spark, use the clean setting so you wont be pushing the mids too much. With the Timmy, use the mid boost setting.

    Boss BD-2 is definitely a good pedal but not a blues breaker based one.
    Snouse Blackbox is a blues breaker based pedal that can do a great job as a clean boost.
    If more output is needed Blackbox Overdrive 2 could be a good option.

    VFE Standout or Rocket EQ. Even EQD Tone Job or even Spark Boost if you want to add a little hairy clipping to the boost.

    Spark with its bass/treble as well as 3way voicing switch and gain knob is always a good solid choice.

    With the timmy you can control all the EQ, so an interesting experiment would be to try a compressor pedal using it as both compression and volume boost, and then perhaps re-eq at the timmy if you need it.
