Default swapping 2011 TMIC into 2006

tried finding info on this and this thread was the only thing i found... had part of the answers but looking to get a more definite answer on it
http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=2156166

my question is that to upgrade my 2006 TMIC i have a buddy i can get a 2011 TMIC from him. would i need to get the brackets from the 2011 to mount to my car? or would it fit just fine with the 2006 mounting brackets for the TMIC? also in the thread above it mentions that i wont be able to use the existing air guide under the scoop... is that true? will i have to do a custom air flow guide on it to replace the existing one?... any input on this would be nice...

his car was a 2011 STI mine is a 2006 WRX both are TMIC

now when you say splitter do you mean the hood scoop splitter to make sure that air gets pushed down to the lower part of the IC? is that what you mean?

and do you know about the mounting? like do i need different brackets?

That thread I think has everything including part number for bracket. Intercooler is pretty much plug and play. Without having a splitter that goes over everything though doesn't benefit you much if at all. Splitter I mean that plastic/rubber piece under the hood/hood scoop.
