I have the PWerks turbo kit on my '06. The intercooler brackets bolt into pre-existing threaded holes on the bottom of the big steel front bumper. It fits just fine under the stock front bumper cover, and has quite a bit more ground clearance than the "race" intercooler that I recently installed on my GXP.
The one that came with the kit, which is likely the same one that they sell separately, also has the inlet and outlet on the sides instead of the back. The kit uses a few U-shaped pipes and couplers to connect back to the turbo and throttle. All of that fit with no issues on my car.
Note that I'd be surprised if the GXP-style intercooler (with the inlet and outlet on the "back" of the intercooler rather than the sides) would fit without a bunch of extra brackets, etc.
You can kind of see the intercooler and piping coming off of the sides in this pic. Sorry for the plastic - I was painting the car.
The pipes (visible next to the intercooler) "U" towards the rear of the car, then back towards the center of the car. If it would be helpful, I can grab a few pictures under the hood when I get home.
Here's a slightly better picture, though one of the pipes was a bit crunched. Stupid road debris.
