The only remaining question is, would the K27-S be a better choice for a CIS car with SC cams just because of the price difference (about $500 new)? If a k27-7200 dies and EFI isn't in the plans, how much turbo does one buy?
I'm thinking the HF can support more power than I currently make, but it doesn't seem to have any vices as a result of that... Nice to have one component that'll support other upgrades without needing to be replaced, heh...

IA have some descriptions and comparisons here:

The HF or HFS still sound like good upgrades for me as I drive in the mountain twisties most of the time and on/off switch boost is a challenge...
If you drive twisties, you'd love a 65/40 LSD, even if you already have a factory ZF. Transforms the car. You'll thank yourself everytime you brake lining up for a corner - just my $0.02...
