My '95 has no boost gauge, cloth seats, only driver power seat, no heated seats, no sunroof, etc.

That heater core is a fun job. Took me 8 or 10 hours my first go around.

You'll have to get a down pipe sorted either way. Either one can be made to work. You can port a straight flange out to nearly the size of an angled. In my opinion, you'll be happy either way you go.
