The K27 7006 and the K27S share the same bearing housing but thats it.
The K27 7006 is an origonal KKK Borg Warner turbo while the K27S is a hybrid UMW turbo.

The K27S uses a K27 7200 bearing housing and hot side (turbine wheel and turbine housing) but the compressor side has a 3" inlet that tapers down instead of the 2.75" inlet of both the K27 7200 and K27 7006.

I do not know if the UMW K27S uses the same compressor wheel as the 7200 but from the pictures I've seen the compressor wheel inducer looks alot like a 7200 wheel.
You would have to take the compressor housing off the backplate to see the rest of the compressor wheel and measure it to see if the wheels are the same.
