cfm CAI for intercooler/maf pipe?

I'm trying to piece together a turbo kit over the summer and was wondering if I can buy a 3" cfm cai and leave the restrictor in for now and when I go turbo take out the restrictor and cap off the pcv line then buy some additional 3" IC piping. I would have to buy a maf tube and filter for the turbo anyways. Anyone have any thoughts?

Why would you have to buy a MAF tube the MAF is built into the CAI now just use it blowthrough

I dont have a cai now. I want to use the CDMA intake as a maf blow through tube later on. Is a 3" maf tube better for tuning? I've only messed with turbo Hondas and srts.
