I wound up removing 10 or 15mm off the compressor outlet on my K27S to make the intercooler and up-pipe bolt to the engine when all said and done. IT WAS TOO LONG AS SHIPPED.
My support bracket was not even close after all this too, so I don't use it currently.
Fitting the turbo on the header was going to be my next step. I am using standard headers.

I'm not too worried about the up-pipe to the IC as I will be making up a special pipe anyway to suit the different compressor outlet connection and a B6 IC.

I guess if the muffler is well supported, the bracket could join some of its weight-loss friends in the box in the attick!
