I received a few e-mails asking me to explain why the K27 isn't a drop in.

My verbiage may have been a little strong. They may not simply "bolt on" but at the same time the mods needed to make them fit correctly are not that big of a deal.

The point I would like to make is that you should not expect to simply un-bolt your existing 3DLZ and bolt-up a K27 in an hours time. The alignment of the turbo outlet to the intercooler up-pipe is a little off requiring an adapter or you can cut the up-pipe and add a silicon hose. The turbo bracket will need the holes elongated or cut and re-welded.
