its a lot of work to go FI, fun most of the time. It sure will be different, but you will want more when the boost no longer feels impressive. If I'm not mistaken, the downpipe flange is the standard 5 bolt on those. Could be totally wrong. IF it is correct, then when it comes time to upgrade the turbo, the two flanges will mate up but you will probably have to make the charge tubing larger unless you use reducers. The stock compressor outlet is 1.75" if I remember correctly.
