[V8] V8 turbo?

I guess you figured you'd be inundated w/ these sort of questions -- and
mine is 3.5-fold:
What is it about the OE dual distributors that (a) might make them
unreliable/complex w/ the 034 ECU, and (b) a poor choice for a TT
application? And do I understand correctly that simply converting from
the OE ecu to the 034 there's a notable power pick-up (no turbos)?
What would the downside be of doing the 034 ECU conversion to a stock V8
I guess it seems to me part of the turbo-related issues could be averted
by starting w/ an ABZ motor...
