There are no downsides to upgrading with this intercooler. Professional installation is recommended, just let us know if you have any questions.

Install done
Installed by a professional with a lift
Install time 2hrs 20mins, for all (disassemble, install, reassemble)

I only have injen intakes installed, no exhaust yet. I can tell a difference in the lower range for sure, specially the tork!
I took a lot of photos so I can detail the install and will put it together in next few days in a new install thread.
I am super happy with the upgrade!

I have to give a shout out to David and the K8 store, I peppered him with questions around this purchase and many others and he responded quickly ever time. If you have not go check out their site, read some reviews, a great place to do business!

Couple of pics:

It looks great. I would think once you decide on exhaust it would be a good time to take it to the shop to tune. Don't want that engine light turning on from running too lean or rich, plus you could utilize more of that hp. Don't forget to change out the spark plugs though if you do go to a shop to tune or decide to piggy-back it. Some other guys might have better insight into this but I like to be safe than sorry with a 40k car.
