Love the color of your car by the way.
I put an old k27 7006 on my car several years ago, and it did change the characteristics of how she runs. The power delivery is much more linear to where you don't get that huge blast-off of power after waiting for the stock 3LDZ to spool up. But overall I'm pleased with it, until such time that I fork over some cash for an an HFS or something.
I didn't have any real fittment issues, other than having to do a clamp-on silicon ribber hose mount to the intercooler (as Bill indicated in his earlier post).
