Why "downgrade" ? ok, that's a rhetorical question, but...:
I have an IEEE488 interface for my C64 and a 1541 converted to 
2031, and I never needed a fastloader while anyone else is (was)
complaining about loading times (ok, I have a standard 1541 as fallback :-)

No. It's just a standard PET 8032 with the rounded case with 
separate keyboard "SK". (The board was not designed for the case, 
but for the older, edgy case, and therefore lots of cables have
been used to connect the board with the (non-standard) userport
and IEEE488 connctors on the back -- if you have the standard (i.e. like
the C64) board-edge connectors on the back of this, I have some more
questions about the machine :-)
