Thanks! I think I'll just do that, but I'll keep the bootloader unlocked in case I need to flash more things later.
If you're flashing stock, remember there's a built-in behaviour that checks for stock recovery: if it's not there, it will overwrite whatever is there (twrp, in this case) with stock recovery, on every reboot.

You'll need to take care of this if you want a stock+twrp permanent combo.

    If you follow the instructions and flash everything, yes it'll go back to stock and replace twrp with stock recovery as well

    If you flash the img files individually, you don't have to flash the recovery img if you want to keep twrp tho
