ATS turbo interchange?

As of right now, my truck is naturally aspirated. Among my desired upgrades for the future is a waste gated turbo. I have the opportunity to buy an ATS 085 kit complete with 3" pipes and muffler. The downside is that the 085 model has the H730441 turbo which is not waste gated. The kit is pretty cheap so I was considering buying it and swapping the original turbo for a rebuilt turbo off of the later idi's which is waste gated. Does anyone see any issues with this. No idea if it's possible or not. If no one here knows my next step is to call up ATS. Thanks for your time

Not going to work like you think. The castings are all different for the 085, 088 and 093/Factory turbo setups from ATS

True, but doesnt the 085 just use a T3 flange? Ive never seen one in person to say for sure.

OP, having had both, the difference is minimal, just get a turbo on that beast. Even my current build with my fairly oversized turbo spools basically instantly whenever youre over 1800 rpm. Its a SXE 362/68/.91 T4. If you were planning to change turbos, i would forget using a factory one and get a S258 or something.
