Boosting will not be impossible, just not to 11lbs and up right out the gate. The GDI systems are great systems and even though the motor runs 12-1 you still only need 87 oct gas. a lot of that has to do with the diesel like injector timing. The pistons have bowls in them that the gas is shot at when close to or at TDC, then its lit off by the spark plug. I wish I had more info about the EcoBoost versions and if they are keeping the 12-1 or if they are lowered some.
