Default Looking for the right IC setup

Ok, so I'm collecting parts. Evergreen's EDT long tube Manifold, 2860RS, 2.5" downpipe.

I've read a ton of IC threads, promise.

Many of them like the FM piping with an "Ebay IC"... my questions are: with the EDT manifold will the turbo be in the "right" position to use the FM piping? Should I also get the intake they sell?

What IC should I be looking for on Ebay? What is the ideal size?- and I do want to retain PS and A/C.

Injectors, clutch, exhaust, LC1 and MS3 still on the list before install.

Its higher up than traditional fm piping so you'd have to extend the connection between turbo and hotside

Figured.
Since that's the case would it be better to just get one of the kits with various aluminum pipes and couplings and make it work?

Should I be looking for 2.5"?
