Downsides
Looks in my opinion
Torque steer which actually goes away with big turbos
Very compact engine bay
Fuel system needs mods to go stage 2
Actually fuel system is the biggest downfall of them
This is pretty much spot on. You need that cam driven high pressure fuel pump for stage 2. That's a few hundred bucks. But after that you can do stock turbo and E85 or mid 400's or higher on pump gas. The direct injection fuel system is a limiter after that.
