Well, yes and no.

Realistically, other than the normal complexities of TCing over SCing, the fact that it's high compression shouldn't increase any issues of that over SCing. Needless to say, you're still only running 5-8 psi. Intercooling is obvious. Additional fuel may or may not be necessary. All the same other concerns of FI in general apply.

The biggest issue is going to be cost. You're going to twin turbo it more than likely. You have to work on manifolds and the rest of the exhaust components. Room to work may or may not be an issue (I'm not familiar with the engine bay so I may be off). Heat management. You get the idea.
