Turbo swaps - PTE5558 vs K04

My '06 is gradually getting relegated to "parts car" status.

It occurred to me that it has a very not-cheap Precision 5558 turbo. How does that compare to the K04? For those that have swapped turbos, how do you handle the coolant lines and boost control? I'd guess that it's okay to remove / block off the coolant lines going to the turbo. Oil feed and return is trivial.

What sort of flange does the K04 have? (T3/T4, some weird GM-specific thing?)

Blue-ish 2006 2.4, Werks stage 1 turbo, Borla cat-back, DDM braces, Spec aluminum flywheel, Spec stage 2 clutch, Werks aluminum radiator, some gauges, RKSport hood, Morimoto FX-Rs, GReddy Profec, Norm's fenders

'07 GXP, RPM Stage 2, Solocatless downpipe, TCE Wilwood 6 piston front brakes, 4-piston rears , Stainless brake lines, slotted/drilled rotors, BC Racing BR coilovers, Performance Autowerks intercooler, DDMWorks CAI, charge pipes and braces
