    I have 4 Boss pedals and was wondering if the order matters
    right now I have Spector NS2000/5 --> Boss TU-2 Tuner ---> Boss Super Octave Oc-3 ---> Boss Flanger BF-3 ---> Boss Bass Chorus CEB-3 ---> amp GK 800RB

    does the order of these pedals matter? if so how would you run them?

    The tuner should go first if you want to be able to tune while any of the other effects are on. After that, it's just a matter of personal preference. If you don't use more than one at a time, it doesn't matter anyway. Play around with it...does it sound better to your ears to chorus the octave or octave the chorus? There's no right or wrong way to do it.
