This is all without knowing what kind of car you have, but...Yes, it should
be as is, just leave everything connected as it is stock, just plug up the
connection going down to the vacuum pump.

Not sure what you mean, set it to about 6 degrees BTDC (stock setting),
everything should work fine, use your stock distributor and ignition parts,
the turbo parts won't work.

Extra air meaning the turbo head and cam?  Realistically its not getting too
much more air, negligible, nothing the factory CIS can't keep up with.  To be
honest though, I doubt you're really getting any more air that you were
stock, maybe the turbo cam is worth 5hp at the most.
